LONDON, April 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- This April Diccon Wright announces the opening in October 2016 of Amano, a new 80 cover bar and café, in West Malling, Kent.
The £1.5 million project sees the complete refurbishment of the Grade II listed pub, formerly known as the Lobster Pot into a modern, bright day-time venue, which will welcome families for accessible, high quality dishes. The menu will have a strong modern Italian influence and include home-cured meats, freshly-made pasta and sourdough pizzas from an authentic wood burning oven.
The interior of the café is modern and bright and the development will also see the conversion of the first floor into four private letting suites and the introduction of a conservatory with 40 covers.
The project is an expansion of Diccon's existing partnership with Daryl Healy and Nick Levantis, which began with the Swan, also in West Malling.
Diccon Wright said, "Having established the Swan at West Malling as a much-loved local brasserie and restaurant, we were keen to open a slightly more casual and family-friendly venue. Our food will continue to be as honest and high quality as ever, but we are looking forward to having some fun with a purpose-built wood-fired pizza oven and curing our own charcuterie. We are also delighted the Amano will see the restoration of a lovely old building in the heart of the village."
Diccon Wright is a restaurateur and property specialist with a strong track record in establishing and growing successful food and beverage operations in the UK and Mediterranean. These include Swan at the Globe, which is made up of a much loved bar, 90 cover restaurant, events business and running all the catering outlets on the site of the Globe Theatre, Bankside.
