Radisson Edwardian intends to introduce a new dining dimension to Guildford, Surrey, with the launch of two all-day restaurants in its new four-star deluxe, 183-bedroom hotel, which opens next month.
The Market Kitchen & Bar will be a Mediterranean café, while Relish will offer brasserie cooking with a focus on British dishes.
Many of the dishes at the family-friendly Market Kitchen & Bar will be designed for sharing and be prepared on the town's first Josper grill. A display table will feature a range of produce including salads, fresh fruit, pasties, cakes, rustic breads, cheese and olives, depending on the time of day.
The restaurant's bar will focus on cocktails using ingredients from southern Europe and have a cocktail book for guests to record their favourite drinks to ensure a constantly evolving list.
The menu at Relish will include favourite British dishes such as Welsh rarebit, fish cakes, pot roast, shepherd's pie and fish and chips. Meanwhile, pork pies, mini sausages and Scotch eggs will be amongst the bar food to accompany locally brewed beer. Locally sourced ingredients from within Surrey will be a key feature.
Designed by Rabih Hage, the two restaurants will open within the new hotel on 29 September.
