Wiltons Group's first new site for 14 years to launch in October

Wiltons Group, the business behind London institution Wiltons and its sister site Franco's, both in St James's, will open a third restaurant in the area in October.

The family restaurant group has managed Wiltons restaurant for more than 70 years on a site that stretches back to 1742.

Locket's, the group's first site to launch since 2005, will open on St James's Jermyn Street, offering a café and wine bar in the former home of the Economist magazine.

The site is named after the daughter of Wiltons Group co-owner Jamie Hambro. Locket told The Caterer

The 60-cover site will feature all-day food and drink, with a focus on a casual, high-quality breakfast, brunch and lunch, and will convert into a wine bar in the evening.

Sustainability will also be built into the site, with produce from sister restaurants used on the restaurant's daily changing menu.
