Whilst restaurants across the country have started to reopen, they are limited by their existing premises as to what they can serve up outside.
But that hasn’t stopped Skewd Kitchen in London from finding a novel way to circumnavigate the current Covid restrictions for eating out.
The kebab restaurant has taken its multi award-winning Anatolian cooking style even further back to its roots, with the launch of Skewd at Belmont, which involves food being cooked on an open firepit using charcoal alongside wood from the trees at the farm in Mill Hill, London.
The venue can cater for up to 100 in a marquee with seating for a further 50 diners outside. It has also enabled the business to take on 25 new staff, including five apprentices.
The company aims to run the outdoor dining pop-up until September.
Maz Demir, executive chef and owner of Skewd Kitchen, and the newly launched Skewd at Belmont, said: “We have missed our customers being able to dine with us, so much over the last year, so, we have brought the Skewd experience outdoors to the beautiful Belmont Farm in Mill Hill.
“We are really going back to our roots, cooking over open firepits in the traditional way. The idea is to create a warm, family feel with a touch of luxury in the midst of the stunning natural beauty of the British countryside.”
