Chef Robbie Lorraine leaves Boys Hall to open permanent Only Food and Courses site

Robbie Lorraine, chef patron and founder of Only Food and Courses, has announced that the restaurant will launch its first fixed site in the Strand, London, on 8 December.

It comes after Lorraine left his head chef role at boutique hotel Boys Hall in Kent, which opened this September, earlier this week.

He will offer his nostalgic take on 1980s and 1990s culinary trends in the 26-cover restaurant located in the dining room at the Cheshire Cheese pub.

The new restaurant is a collaboration with the Blighty Pub Company, which has taken over management of the pub.

The move comes almost two years to the day that Lorraine first launched the concept in London's Pop Brixton shipping container development.

Only Food and Courses at the Strand will continue to serve Lorraine's signature dishes, including smoked salmon and eggs, duck liver pate, prawn cocktails, beef and onions, millionaire's shortbread, as well as snacks such as lobster doughnuts.

Lorraine said: "I'm chuffed to bits to be opening in my first bricks and mortar site. It has been a mad few years since we first launched, and I can't quite believe how well the restaurant and our food has been received.

"Pop Brixton was a wonderful place for us to launch and the next stage in our journey being a great British pub makes perfect sense.

"I can't wait to be able to showcase our modern take on nostalgic British food to a wider audience."
