Peyton and Byrne wins Imperial War Museum contract

Peyton and Byrne has won a seven-year contract with IWM London (part of the Imperial War Museums) in Lambeth, London, to operate two new cafés and to provide exclusive events catering.

Both cafés will open in summer 2014 as part of the re-development of IWM London.

Designed by Foster + Partners, the transformed museum includes a new atrium space with large object displays and the launch of the new First World War Galleries, to mark the First World War Centenary.

Open daily during museum hours, the 144-seat café will have an outdoor seasonal terrace area seating a further 92, looking out onto the Geraldine Mary Harmsworth Park. The second café will be on the first floor of the museum, directly off the new terraced galleries. The modern British menus will appeal to the broad visitor mix, with the food offering will evolve throughout the day, and change with the British seasons.

Diane Lees, director-general of IWM said: "2014 is a huge year for IWM, and we are really excited that our new and improved museum will fully open to the public in less than a year's time. One of the driving factors in our redevelopment was to improve the experience for our visitors and we are delighted that Peyton and Byrne have come on board, to join us on this journey and run our brand new cafés."
