Claude Bosi and brother Cedric have acquired their second pub in South West London, The Malt House in Fulham.
Situated in a quiet street in the heart of Fulham Broadway, the pub will open its doors in February 2013 after a major refurbishment.
The Malt House will serve modern British pub food, with a focus on seasonal ingredients, in an informal, friendly setting. The kitchen will be headed up by Marcus McGuiness, who is the former Head Chef at Claude Bosi’s two Michelin starred restaurant Hibiscus in Mayfair.
The philosophy of the kitchen will be to create simple flavourful dishes and a menu that will change with the season and market availability. McGuiness will bring his own creativity to the menu and will feature a selection of bar snacks like Welsh Rarebit, Rhubarb Chutney and menu dishes for example starter of Crab Gratin, White Port & Seabuckthorn. Main dishes will include meat and fish, featuring choices such as Short Ribs of Beef, Pickled Red Cabbage & Horseradish or Pollock, Pumpkin, Winter Savoury & Red Wine as well as traditional favourites like Rib Eye Steak, Shoulder of Lamb and Sunday Roast.
London based Alexander Waterworth Interiors have been contracted to ensure the 18th century pub will retain its local pub feel with some major work to update its exterior space and the eight upstairs bedrooms.
