|Sam's At Chiswick House?|
Award winning brasserie in line for new cafe's franchise
Rumours that Sam’s Bar & Brasserie is in line to take on the franchise for the new café at Chiswick House have been confirmed by the man himself.
According to Sam Harrison, he has been in talks with Chiswick House Trust.
He told ChiswickW4.com, “We are so lucky to have something as amazing as Chiswick House on our doorstep and there is real potential to make the café a destination in itself.
"I approached the trustees with my suggestions to make the most of the new café with the idea of recreating something along the lines of the cafes at other historical sites.”
He went on to say that he believed the new café should be run by someone synonymous with Chiswick and not a faceless catering company.
A planning application for the construction of the new café will be ready to go before Hounslow Council's committee by August of this year.
No decisions on the café management have been made but funding generated by the venue will be a vital source of revenue for the maintenance of the grounds and café.
