Cubitt House appoints new executive team to manage expansion

The first focus for the new team will be The Coach Makers Arms, set to continue operating as a traditional pub on the ground floor with a 60-cover classical British restaurant on the first floor

Cubitt House has announced the appointment of a new executive team to develop its six existing sites in central London and to drive expansion throughout the group. 

Ben Tish will join the brand’s team as chef director, bringing with him over 20 years of culinary expertise having recently worked at Norma and The Game Bird at The Stafford Hotel, both receiving critical acclaim.

Tish will oversee menu development at each Cubitt House property and will work alongside Richard Sandiford, previously of Hawksmoor and The Double Red Duke.

The first focus for the team will be The Coach Makers Arms, set to continue operating as a traditional pub on the ground floor with a 60-cover classical British restaurant on the first floor, offering a chophouse-style menu.

Cubbitt House also revealed that joining the group as directors are Sam and Georgie Pearman, owners of Cotswold-based boutique hotel and restaurant group Country Creatures, and former founders of Lucky Onion hotel and restaurant group.

Four more projects are already planned for next year including the launch of The Princess Royal (Notting Hill) in Spring 2022, and refurbishments of The Alfred Tennyson (Belgravia), The Orange (Pimlico) and the opening of The Barley Mow (Mayfair). 

Montana Fogg founders, Seb Fogg and Laura Montana, will also join the team with Seb as managing director and Laura as openings director.

Pearman said: “After such a challenging period for our industry, it’s a thrilling prospect to be working alongside the best in the business and to be tasked with creating something special at some of London’s most iconic pubs but also to be growing the company over the next few years with more central London properties.”
