Chiswick pub the Hole in the Wall, situated on Sutton Lane North, has been refurbished and rebranded as the new Smokehouse, opening to the public on Thursday 26 March.
Rankin said: “We are thrilled to be opening Smokehouse in Chiswick, bringing our robust and gutsy barbecue cooking to the neighbourhood.
“As soon as we saw the space we fell in love with it and were excited to breathe new life into this lovely old pub.”
Smokehouse Chiswick’s barbecue-fixated menu will include dishes such as rock oysters with beef dripping, chopped brisket roll with gochujang, burnt leeks with slow cooked egg, smoked lamb shoulder with polenta and raclette and short rib bourguinon.
The team, who have installed a smoking shed and robata grill at the site, will source produce from independent farms and butcher speciality and rare-breed meat on-site.
Rankin’s first Smokehouse site in Islington was a finalist in this year’s Budweiser Budvar Top 50 Gastropubs.
The chef also owns Bad Egg, an East London concept diner with a unique menu focus on eggs and international flavours incorporating Korean, Mexican, Malaysian and North African traditions.
