Beagle, a new restaurant, bar and coffee shop, is set to open in Shoreditch next year, housed in three railway arches next to Hoxton Station.
Brothers Danny and Kieran Clancy will open the new venue in March 2013, named after one of the steam locomotives that used to run on the original East London line. Danny is also a founder and director at the recently opened Bonnie Gull Seafood Shack.
The daily-changing menu will offer seasonal, produce-led British dishes from head chef James Ferguson, who was previously head chef at Rochelle Canteen. He will be using a traditional wood grill for much of his menu.
In the adjoining bar, Beagle will serve cocktails along with British beers and wines by the carafe or bottle.
The restaurant will accommodate up to 55 diners, while the bar will seat 45. There will also be a large south facing outdoor area on Geffrye Street for up to 60 guests.
