The kitchen has seen its fair share of investment this year. So far this year we have purchased a new Rational combi oven, new carvery units and a new gas range. Our new high-speed oven literally arrived last week; this is being tried and tested as we speak. Watch this space for some new menu items coming your way. The investment so far this year has been £25,000.
This week the kitchen is closed so that we can replace the kitchen floor. We will be installing a resin flooring system, closing off the kitchen door nearest to the bar, changing the remaining kitchen door to fully glazed. The cost of this is £20,000.
On Monday the kitchen engineers were on site by 8am and they stripped and removed all equipment to a container in the car park. By lunchtime on Monday the flooring company were on site to start removing the floor. We have 3 layers of vinyl to remove. The new resin floor will be sealed to the original concrete floor. The work will involve 3 late nights working to midnight.
By the end of November, we will have invested £45,000 into the kitchen, to keep it modern with the latest requirements.
A late edition On Thursday, have a look at the photo below, it shows a very nice image of what our new floor will look like.
