Tragus to open new restaurant at Terminal 5

Café Rouge owner Tragus is to launch a new restaurant concept at Heathrow Airport’s Terminal 5 when it opens next March.

Huxleys Bar & Kitchen will offer a traditional British menu with dishes including kedgeree, steak and kidney pudding, ploughman’s lunch, classic sandwiches and grilled steaks.

The brand will initially launch at Heathrow Airport but the company said it had plans to roll it out to the high street post the opening of Terminal 5.

Tragus chief executive Graham Turner said: “Huxleys Bar & Kitchen is an exciting new British concept designed to appeal to all Anglophiles in an international environment. We are delighted to be able to showcase this new brand at Terminal 5.”

Tragus recently acquired Italian high-street restaurant chain Strada in a deal worth £140m.

The company, which is backed by private equity firm Blackstone, said it plans to grow the Strada business to around 150 outlets across the UK after completing the deal in May.
