Michel Roux Jr is teaming up with five-star London hotel The Langham to launch The Wigmore pub this summer, with the aim of creating a “traditional British tavern with a luxury accent”.

Based within the Marylebone hotel’s former banking hall, the pub will be connected to the hotel but will have its own Regent Street entrance, and is expected to open its doors this summer.

The menu, overseen by Roux Jr, will include dishes such as devilled lamb’s kidneys, paprika-glazed short rib with bone marrow crumb, and raised veal and ham pie, with dishes expected to start at £12.

The drinks list is being curated by the the team behind the hotel’s Artesian cocktail bar, which was voted the World’s Best Bar for an unprecedented four years in a row from 2012-2014.

Beverages will include several cask ales and craft beers, beer-infused cocktails and a wide range of wines, which are expected to be priced under a fiver.

The pub will occupy what was once a banking hall and will have a grand art deco look with high ceilings, a large chandelier and an emerald-coloured bar studded with table-top lamps.

“It’s going to be a great addition to The Langham’s offering, perfect for a few relaxing drinks and a bite to eat,” said Roux Jr. “You’ll find me at the bar with a glass of red.”

Michel Roux Jr’s Mayfair restaurant Le Gavroche has two Michelin stars and serves a tasting menu for £160.

The Rouxs signed a five-year deal with the The Langham hotel in April 2015, with Chez Roux Ltd operating food and beverage services across all of its 14 banqueting and private dining rooms, alongside the Roux at the Landau restaurant, the Palm Court, Artisan bar, Langham Club and room service.
