MICHELIN STAR: Gary Neville announces Michelin Star chef for his hotel restaurant

26 April 2024 by Rhiannon Ingle

There's an exciting new addition to one of the city's best dining rooms as Gary Neville has just announced the news of a brand-new restaurant inside his five-star Stock Exchange Hotel.

The space was previously home to Tom Kerridge’s The Bull & Bear, which closed a few years back in 2022, and later replaced by the Stock Market Grill which was only open for a matter of months.

And the latest update to the space sees the Man-U icon announce his big plans to enlist none other than two-time Michelin star chef, Niall Keating, to front the restaurant.

Punters will be able to rock up to the new restaurant, Tender, later this summer in early June to check out the luxury dining experience 'named after the tender care put into crafting each dish'.

Serving up superb gourmet food inside the stunning interiors of the dining room, Tender's menu will be offering up weekday brasserie lunches, afternoon teas, a la carte dinners, Sunday roasts, a chef’s table and even a special tasting menu.

Speaking about the announcement, Gary said: "We couldn’t be happier to be partnering with Niall Keating for Tender and bringing his culinary expertise to the hotel.

"His vision to create versatile and accessible dining options is exactly what we’ve been looking for, to allow everyone visiting Tender to find the right experience for them."

Niall continued: "From when I first walked through the doors of the hotel into the dining room, I knew this was the place for me and that we could create something really special.

"I immediately felt connected to both Gary and General Manager, Tracy Harrison, and I knew what I wanted to create at the hotel and restaurant. I want a space that feels vibrant, warm and energetic, that brings to life the history of the stock exchange roots of the hotel, while providing an upscale and comfortable brasserie dining experience.

"In addition to the main dining room, we will also be opening ‘The Bank’, which is a beautiful private space for up to 12 guests, where we will be providing a truly exceptional dining experience."

Gary added: "We will also shortly be announcing a series of events and live music experiences, including a weekly music plan, within Tender, that will really bring the venue to life, making it the heart of Stock Exchange Hotel."
