Noble Rot’s third restaurant will launch this April in Mayfair’s Shepherd Market

More than two years after announcing a second spot in Soho, Noble Rot is expanding once again – this time with a move further west. The third branch of the wine-focused restaurant will open in Mayfair’s Shepherd Market in spring this year, taking over the former site of French Brasserie Le Boudin Blanc. 

Founders Dan Keeling and Mark Andrew will be settling into the mid-19th century pub on Trebeck Street, in keeping with their pattern of bringing new life to old buildings. The OG Lamb’s Conduit Street restaurant is based out of an 18th-century townhouse and Soho’s was formerly the haunt of many a politician throughout the 20th century – so Mayfair will, gladly, follow suit. 

And that’s not the only charm that’ll be making its way west, as Keeling puts it, we can expect the new site to be a buzzing restaurant with Noble Rot’s “trademark warmth and fine cooking”. The menu has been put together by the site’s head chef Adam Wood (previously of Perilla and The Square) and executive chef Stephen Harris of The Sportsman. Expect it to include the likes of warm smoked eel, baked potato and Avruga caviar; sea bream and oyster tartare; and a whole roast duck with Chambertin sauce and potato and cep gratin to share for two. Plus, Mayfair will house NR’s most ambitious wine programme yet. Chin chin!
