The Brasserie Bar Co is set to open 20 new White Brasserie pubs over the next three years, as it begins rolling the brand out.
The company secured funding from ESO Capital six months ago to expand the pub brand.
The Brasserie Bar Co already operates two pubs - the King's Head in Teddington and the Queen's Head in Weybridge - and will open the Hare in Harrow Weald in Middlesex next week.
The British Queen in Orpington is set to follow in August, and the Sun Inn will open in Chobham towards the end of the year. All the pubs will serve freshly cooked dishes based on Brasserie Blanc's menu
To help the business grow, the Brasserie Bar Co has appointed a new operations director, Paul Van Zijl, who was formerly operations manager with Gaucho Grill.
Director Mark Derry said: "The ESO funding enables us to roll out our successful pub brand and the Hare is the first step in growing our portfolio."
Designed by PNW, the Hare, which has been an established pub since 1706, has undergone a complete refurbishment. The 4,000 square foot, 120-cover pub will have a large garden which will provide space for a further 40-covers during warmer months.
Dishes include a selection of sharing boards such as a Ploughman's and Fisherman's will sit alongside starters including warm ox tongue salad; Burgundian snails in garlic herb butter; and salmon tartare. Mains will feature dishes like Toulouse sausage with a Lyonnaise sauce; fresh fig, Jervaulx blue cheese and onion tart; dressed Brixham crab with lemon mayonnaise; and 30 day dry-aged Cornish heritage steaks.
