The Schofield Brothers (Joe and Daniel Schofield), and wine-expert James Brandwood, are set to open their first restaurant concept at Stock Exchange Hotel– taking over the former Bull & Bear site. The trio – also behind Manchester bars Schofield’s Bar, Atomeca and Sterling – will launch the Stock Market Grill in February
The kitchen will be led by Head-Chef Joshua Reed Cooper who’s impressive CV includes working for Simon Rogan at The French, Sam Buckley at Where The Light Gets In and Manchester’s only Michelin starred restaurant MANA.
Diners can expect traditional, well-loved British dishes executed with technique, using local, high quality produce. The bespoke menu for launch will include dishes such as; Whipped Black Pudding With Yolk on Toast, Tartare of Rib-Eye with Caper Jam and Smoked Dripping, Steamed Cod with Caramelised Mash and Tartare Sauce and a Sticky Toffee Tart with Honey Custard.
Manchester born and bred, Joe and Daniel Schofield and business partner James Brandwood have continued to push the food and beverage scene across the city forward with their current venues SCHOFIELD’S BAR, ATOMECA and STERLING.
The trio have more than 20 years experience across the globe working in some of the world’s most applauded restaurants and bars including Singapore’s Tippling Club, Jimmy Liks and Rockpool Bar & Grill, Sydney.
Gary Neville, Owner of Stock Exchange Hotel said: “I am incredibly excited to be working with Joe, Daniel and James again on the launch of The Stock Market Grill. I know they will bring another world class-brand to the Stock Exchange Hotel and to our city.”
Joe, Daniel and James said: “We are really looking forward to the launch of The Stock Market Grill. This is a concept that we have wanted to bring forward for some time and the former trading floor of the Stock Exchange seemed like the perfect option. Our aim is to reinvent the traditional hotel restaurant, to become a space destined for food and drink travellers, whilst providing an expectation exceeding experience for the residents of the hotel.”
The Schofield brothers opened their second bar in Manchester, STERLING in The Vault of Stock Exchange Hotel alongside wine expert James Brandwood in September which has already received rave reviews.
Stock Exchange Hotel won Times Travel and The Sunday Times Best Hotel in the North of England in 2020 and has recently won Leading Hotel of the Year at the This is MCR Awards 2022.
The Stock Market Grill will open at the end of February 2023.
