The names behind The Guinea Grill and Flat Iron are coming together to launch the new pub this autumn

Publican Oisín Rogers, the recognisable face and name behind Mayfair’s Guinea Grill until his departure last summer, has announced that he and Flat Iron founder Charlie Carroll will take over a pub in the heart of Soho. Opening this month, The Devonshire will be based out of a historic inn on Denman Street that dates back to 1793, with a top-quality pub downstairs and a ‘highly ambitious’ restaurant upstairs – Ashley Palmer-Watts of The Fat Duck and Dinner by Heston has come on board so you know they mean business.

Centred around the restaurant’s wood-ember grill, the menu at The Devonshire will feature beef chops, ribeyes and fillets and Guinness & beef cheek suet puddings, with beef from Scotland that’s been dry-aged and butchered on-site. Also expect to see Iberico pork ribs, lamb hotpot, creel-caught langoustines from Oban, hand-dived scallops from Devon and prime day boat fish on offer.

An affordable, three-course set menu will be available at lunch and dinner, with choices including the likes of prawn-and-langoustine cocktail, steak & chips and sticky toffee pudding. And there’ll be a selection of bar food, like scotch eggs, bacon sarnies, sausage rolls and cheese & ham hock toasties, available at the pub too. Soho’s certainly not short on pubs, but it sounds like this one’ll be a standout.
