A new look for the Barley Mow Centre could be on the way.

Workspace is planning to refurbish the Centre, adding 48 offices, two meeting rooms, breakout spaces and a new entrance. A new cafe, to be called The Larder is also planned which will also be opened to the public as well as people working in the Centre.

The Larder, which is run by a company called Vacherin Ltd, is not connected to the Chiswick restaurant Le Vacherin, which is run by chef Malcolm John.

The similarity of name with Le Vacherin is a pure coincidence. Vacherin began operating in 2002, 2 years before the restaurant opened, and looks after in-house catering for a small number of businesses in central London, including Disney in Hammersmith.

However they did forge links with the Chiswick restaurant in the past and Malcolm John was “celebrity judge” at a chef skills competition once.

The planned Workspace refurbishment will see the size of the Barley Mow Centre increased by 22,000 sq. ft., adding 48 offices, two meeting rooms, breakout spaces and a new entrance.
Vacherin will be running the café on behalf of Workspace in a similar manner to the previous tenants.

The cafe will provide , seasonal breakfast and lunch menus, as well as a range of coffees, cakes and deli selections. A licence application has been submitted on behalf of Vacherin Ltd to take over the cafe at the Barley Mow. The location was previously operated by the Barley Brunch cafe.

The new licence application includes a request for permission to serve alcohol. The deadline for comments on the application is 29 August.
