Whitbread to launch First Bar + Block in Scotland

Whitbread’s contemporary high street steak brand, Bar + Block, is set to open two new restaurants on 11 June, its first in Scotland (Glasgow) and one in Milton Keynes, taking the portfolio to 17 sites.

The new sites will follow the steak house’s all-day trading format – serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, seven days a week. The menu puts the spotlight on high quality 30-day aged steaks in a variety of cuts and sizes, hand cut to order, at an accessible price point with the signature ‘Butcher’s Block’ offering limited time only rotating steak specials.

Also on the menu are fresh burgers ground on-site, salads, grills and grazing plates whilst an express menu, served in under 10 minutes, is available.

Bar + Block also serves, an unlimited cooked breakfast, and a children’s menu featuring veggie sticks, main, dessert and a drink. Drinks include craft beers and ciders, cocktails and accessible wines.

Rebecca Donaldson, for Whitbread Restaurants, commented, “We’re very excited to be back in business post a year full of restrictions and to be in the position to begin growing the Bar + Block brand again. We are thrilled to be opening our first restaurant in Scotland and in Milton Keynes and are gearing up for a busy summer.”

Whitbread plans to open an additional Bar + Block restaurant in Edinburgh later this year.
