Tom’s Kitchen, the group of restaurants and delis founded by chef Tom Aikens, is launching a new deli and bar at the iconic London landmark, HMS Belfast.
This will be the fifth Tom’s Kitchen to open, and has been created in conjunction with Levy Restaurants UK.
Opening later this month, the site is designed to both improve the visitor experience at one of London’s star attractions and deliver a new deli destination to the bustling riverside scene.
HMS Belfast, the most significant surviving Second World War Royal Navy warship, is moored on the River Thames in the Pool of London with views overlooking Tower Bridge and the London skyline.
The new quayside venue will include a 58 cover rooftop bar as well as a 46 seat deli. The venue will be part covered and part open air for al fresco dining.
The design for each space will have a fresh and contemporary feel with spectacular views of the River Thames and the surrounding London landmarks, including the Tower of London and The Shard.
“The opportunity to create a Tom’s Kitchen Deli and Bar in such an extraordinary space is a real privilege,” said founder Tom Aikens.
The deli will offer the Tom’s Kitchen signature range of sandwiches, fresh salads and platters, bakery and beverages, whilst the bar, which will open until late, will serve up wines, cocktails, craft beers and a selection of nibbles
Tom’s Kitchen currently has four restaurants and three delis across London as well as one international flagship in Istanbul. The London restaurants, located in Chelsea, Canary Wharf, St Katharine Docks and Somerset House, serve British favourites and comfort food classics in a relaxed and informal environment.
