Premium steakhouse chain Miller & Carter has completed two more openings in the north of England as owner Mitchells & Butlers brings its open kitchen model to more locations that it owns.
The latest schemes, in Otterspool in Liverpool and Gosforth Park in Newcastle upon Tyne, form part of the chain’s plans to reach 100 sites.
Both projects were undertaken by construction and fit-out specialist Medlock FRB, which has now managed eight Miller & Carter refurbs in the last two years.
The North East venue, on the edge of a housing development opposite Newcastle Racecourse, was Medlock’s first new-build project for Miller & Carter.
The two-storey building has a timber frame with a contrasting external finish of brickwork, cladding and render. The restaurant has 300 covers, including al fresco dining.
Miller & Carter’s Otterspool site, which has 160 covers, saw an existing restaurant converted into the steakhouse brand.
Dan Lewis, project director at Medlock, said: “It’s exciting to be involved in new-build projects as well as those which breathe new life into older restaurants by converting them into Miller & Carter venues, each of which exhibits the brand’s distinctive interior design features, including an open kitchen, contemporary bar, luxurious dining space, designer lighting and red undertones.”
Medlock also works with Mitchells & Butlers on the fit-out of new All Bar One venues across the UK.
