Marco Pierre White is to open an English Chophouse and a Wheeler’s Fish and Chip Shop at the Best Western Plus Dover Marina Hotel & Spa set to open this summer.
The 85 cover English Chophouse will be the third restaurant of its kind to open in the UK this year and will feature a range of fresh meat based dishes.
Wheelers Fish and Chip shop will aim to provide diners with White’s take on the traditional English seaside dish at “affordable” prices. The restaurant will offer both takeaway and eat in options and will feature both traditional and obscure fish related dishes.
White said: “What’s appealing about the Chophouse is its simplicity. The menu is very simple and the whole idea is to be generous with the portions. It’s hard to beat classic British food and that is exactly what the Chophouse centres on alongside a fine collection of wines, cocktails and beer.
“As for Wheeler’s Fish & Chips, I am working closely with Garry Rosser the owner of the award-winning Scallop Shell fish and chips shop in Bath to ensure we source the best quality fish available to deliver a very affordably priced menu.”
Kanagaratnam Rajaseelan, managing director at Best Western Plus Dover Marina Hotel & Spa, said: “Our hotel has recently been refurbished throughout and the next part of our investment focuses on our food and beverage offer. Introducing Marco Pierre White’s concepts truly elevates what we do and we’re delighted to be bringing both Chophouse and Wheeler’s Fish and Chips Shop to the south coast.”
