Henry Harris to oversee relaunch of the Truscott Arms

Henry Harris has been named as a director of Maida Vale gastropub the Truscott Arms, following its closure last year due to a rent hike, and is set to oversee the site's relaunch.

Private equity firm Ducalian Capital purchased the gastropub earlier this year for £5m. The venue is expected to open under a new name later this year.

Harris will manage the refit and design the menu. The refurbishment will keep the pub's ‘local' feel, build on its existing reputation for music and food, and add a restaurant and private members bar upstairs.

Speaking to the Evening Standard, Harris said: "People can expect a traditional British roast beef with all the trimmings and a nice punchy horseradish, but equally we might lay on a seven-hour slow-roasted shoulder of lamb with rosemary, which has a much more French feel."

Harris was chef/restaurateur at Racine in London's Knightsbridge for 13 years until 2015 when he sold the business and resigned as a director.
