Which is the best restaurant in London?
Tap house in London has just opened its doors, with one of its owners admitting he was “a bit sad” to see his favourite pub closed.
The owner of Tap House Bar & Grill, which is owned by local restaurateur Andrew Tovey, told the Evening Standard that the bar’s opening had been “very, very hard” and that it would be “a real shame” to close.
He added: “It’s one of the things that keeps us going, it’s the same thing that kept us going in the past.”
I was a bit sad to see it go, the owners of Tap house Bar & Grille said on Monday, after the pub had been closed in the last two years.
Andrew Toure, who is now head of Toveys catering business, said he had been looking for a new restaurant “for a long time” and had been waiting for a “strong” and “fresh” pub in London.
Tovety’s Bar & Gourmet, which opened in London’s Regent’s Park in 2015, had previously had a pub on its premises, and he said that the new Tap House had the “right mix” of ingredients, including “an Italian food menu”.
“It’ll be really exciting to see how it works out,” Toveey said.
“It will be a very different experience to what it’s used to, it’ll be a great venue, and we’ve got the right balance.”
He said that he would like to open a new pub, but had “no guarantees” about its future.
