Artisan bakery and café Peyton and Byrne is to open a fifth outlet at Kew Gardens next month, The Botanical, to add to its seven-strong London bakery portfolio.
The Botanical will be the first all-day table service restaurant at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew and is located in the building formerly known as Museum No. 1.
Oliver Peyton, the founder of Peyton and Byrne, said: “We are delighted to have expanded our portfolio at Kew Gardens.
“This is a really exciting new project, and we look forward to working closely with Kew to grow the ‘Why Plants Matter’ concept through the dishes we will serve and the ambient restaurant space we will create.”
The plant-based British menu, created by executive chef Lawrence Keogh (formerly of The Wolseley), will reflect the restaurant’s location and put an emphasis on natural, seasonal ingredients.
Peyton and Byrne also operates the Orangery Restaurant, Victoria Plaza Café, White Peaks Café and The Pavilion at Kew, to cater for the 1.35 million visitors a year.
The group also currently operates London bakeries in Hammersmith, Greenwich, White Peaks Café, Victoria Gate, Wellington Street, Central St Giles and Great Portland Street, as well as outlets at a number of other visitor attractions including the RA Grand Café at the Royal Academy of Arts.
