The Clink Charity's latest Clink restaurant opens in Brixton at the end of this month.
The third in a chain of training restaurants will be housed in the old governor's house and converted into a three-story restaurant and meetings venue.
The restaurant will continue to follow the Clink's Five Step Programme, implemented at the Clink restaurant at HMP High Down in Surrey, educating prisoners and equipping them with the skills and tools to secure employment upon their release.
Speaking previously to Caterer and Hotelkeeper, Chris Moore, chief executive of the Clink Charity, said: "Brixton is the perfect site for our next restaurant and underwent a regeneration project with us to make it work as an opportunity for rehabilitation."
"The central location lends itself to securing support from local businesses and members of the public, providing they are committed to the Clink's vision, and once the necessary security checks have been processed, providing real-life experience for those prisoners who make it through the selection process to join the programme."
Online bookings are now open for the Clink, Brixton with table reservations for lunchtime bookings from Thursday 27 February via www.theclinkrestaurant.com/restaurants/book-now
As part of the Clink Charity's ongoing development and growth plans, which will see a total of 10 training facilities in operation across the prison estate by 2017, in partnership with Her Majesty's Prison Service, the online booking platform will enable the restaurants to manage the overwhelming number of booking requests, with over 18,000 people dining at the Clink restaurants in 2013.
"As with all areas of the training restaurants, we rely on generous donations from philanthropic individuals and organisations to support our ongoing growth. Our online booking system has been kindly developed and provided by Nudge, the provider of custom-built eCRM platforms for the hospitality industry, who are keen to support the restaurants as we continue to expand, " added Moore.
