The upstairs of the restaurant will offer a £16 pre-theatre menu and will feature a private dining area.

The downstairs, a basement bar inspired by Japanese izakayas, will launch later, at the end of January.

The chain began expanding outside the capital in 2016, opening sites in Liverpool, Manchester, St Albans, and a restaurant under franchise in Dubai, but they all closed within three years.

This year, it restarted its regional expansion, opening its first Welsh site in Cardiff in October.
