The Cadogan Arms has announced plans to relaunch this July, and has appointed James Knappett as the new culinary director to lead operations for the venue’s new food offering.
He will work alongside Alex Harper, executive chef, who has spent time at both The Ledbury and The Harwood Arms.
In further support of the relaunch, Dominic Jacobs of The Running Horse Mayfair will spearhead the project as managing director – having raised capital from a number of private investors, including Jyotin, Karam and Sunaina Sethi, founders of JKS Restaurants.
Jacobs will work to create a food and drinks offering that celebrates the “revival of community driven hospitality” – as locals look to their neighbourhoods for “post-lockdown comfort”.
Jacobs said: “Dating back to the 1700’s, The Cadogan Arms is one of Chelsea’s most enduring public houses’. The team are excited to once again be able to open the doors to the local community and deliver a gold standard public house experience that honours the rich history of the venue.”
