The Griffin Inn

Hatherley Commercial Services Ltd

The Griffin Inn, owned and operated by Sir Jamie Benton-Jones, is a Grade 2 listed building public house with restaurant and rooms, which went under complete renovation in early 2019, our brief was to design, supply and fit out a new professional kitchen refurbishing the existing kitchen which was in a very poor state of repair, We were tasked with designing a complete new layout to include new ventilation system, prime cooking equipment, refrigeration and storage, heated pass area, ware-washing system and food preparation and storage, LPG gas supply pipework all within a small footprint.

The kitchen was to be a new sleek and professional design for a fine dining menu and wedding functions with top quality equipment to benefit and compliment the new head chef.
Working closely with Sir Jamie and Head Chef Michael Prescott we agreed upon a design and equipment layout and equipment manufacturers to suit the needs of the client and the menu, within the budget and planned the time frame.

We were given the task of project managing and coordinating of all aspects of the kitchen refurbishment from inception to completion within a short period of time to align with Sir Jamie’s opening date.

Client Satisfaction

The project was delivered to the client on time, under budget and successfully with continual support from ourselves.

This work was a result of a recommendation to the client which we had not worked with in the past, we continue to work with them to this day offering our support services where needed and have continued to add items to the kitchen as the business has developed and flourished.
