📰 Marco pops up at Southampton's Grand Harbour Hotel

Marco Pierre White is to open a pop-up restaurant at The Grand Harbour Hotel in Southampton next month.

The celebrity chef will bring his Wheeler's of St James's eatery to the city from September 4 until September 20, after the hotel's management team sealed a deal with the chef's hospitality group, Black & White Hospitality.

It will be open to lunch and dinner guests from September 4, incorporating the full duration of the Southampton Boat Show and the Grand Harbour Hotel have confirmed it will be accompanied by an al fresco Bottega Prosecco Bar serving a range of cocktails and fine Prosecco.

Wheeler's of St James's is the UK's oldest fish restaurant brand and the new pop-up venue will serve a selection of its current menu, which includes dishes such as Rillettes of Duck with Prunes d'Argen, Ribeye Boston style with Oysters, Maldon Rock Oysters and Wheeler's Fish Pie.

Marco said: "Southampton is a beautiful harbour city and its rich maritime heritage is a perfect fit with the essence of Wheeler's. We hope it receives a warm welcome from Sotonians and visitors alike.

"It promises to be a special few weeks."

Laura Roberts, General Manager at the Grand Harbour Hotel, said: "We continue to bring new initiatives to the iconic Grand Harbour Hotel to ensure it remains the city's most elegant and luxurious destination.

"Thousands of people visit Southampton during the Boat Show and we have worked incredibly hard to bring Marco and Wheeler's here at such an important time.

"Wheeler's is a great brand with an excellent menu that reflects the standards of quality and service we want to achieve here. We are confident it will be a popular choice for visitors throughout September."
