The venue would be Kerridge's second Butcher's Tap following the launch of the first in Marlow, Buckinghamshire, in 2017, for which he partnered with pub group Greene King. The outlet operates as a butcher's and bar during the day and becomes a traditional pub after 5pm, offering simple, meat-led food.

It would also be the chef-restaurateur's third venue in London, joining Kerridge's Bar & Grill, which opened at the Corinthia hotel in Whitehall in 2018 and Kerridge's Fish & Chips, which opened at Harrods' dining hall in 2021.
