Flagship Debenhams launches three restaurants as part of £25m overhaul

Debenhams is to launch three new hospitality areas at its flagship London Oxford Street store as part of a £25m overhaul.

The new restaurant, café and bistro will be opened in the autumn as part of the rebranding and expansion of the store.

With 250 covers the restaurant on the fifth floor will be designed to cater for families and tourists. It will focus on British dishes.

Food Services director John Baker said: "The fifth floor restaurant will be a celebration of British culinary history and heritage, with an emphasis on iconic dishes both British visitors and tourists will love.

"Fish has always been one of our best sellers so we've created a Fish & Chip Shop where fresh plaice, cod, scampi and salmon fishcakes will be available with thick-cut chips and mushy peas!

"Whether it's a traditional English breakfast, a fruit scone with tea or a Sunday roast, customers can expect to find all the British classics on offer."

Meanwhile, a bistro in the basement will feature menu items such as crispy salt and pepper squid with a lime aioli, oak smoked salmon on sourdough with salsa verde and a grilled halloumi, and almond and courgette ribbon salad, alongside a wine and cocktail selection.

The new café will be located alongside young fashion and will be designed to offer more relaxed service with menu items including fish pie, lamb hotpot and sausage rolls.
