This Month in Premier Hospitality 5.8
Welcome to the latest edition of Premier Hospitality.
In this month’s issue we unveil a new look for The Leathes Head Hotel; we preview Sally Bee’s new venture; and we catch up with KFC as its new design continues to roll-out.
The Leathes Head Hotel, an award-winning hotel in the heart of the Lakes has re-opened its doors to guests following a distinctly Cumbrian makeover. The refurbishment of The Leathes Head Hotel, in the Borrowdale Valley near Keswick, includes a new showpiece bar featuring Kirkstone Brathay slate, handcrafted Cumbrian oak and even an intricate basket light weaved with willow harvested near Cockermouth. The interior has been crafted by local tradespeople for a stylish, natural and authentic feel – all overseen by design consultancy Other Works.
Meanwhile, chef and best-selling author Sally Bee has joined forces with Hoar Cross Hall Spa Hotel to launch a healthy but indulgent restaurant. Hoar Cross Hall Spa Hotel is a Grade II listed stately home retreat in Staffordshire. Already offering overnight accommodation, a first class spa and leisure facilities, wedding and conference space; the launch of this new restaurant forms part of a wider £2.5 million renovation strategy at the luxury resort. The ‘guilt free’ restaurant aims to offer a delicious and decadent menu, packed with personality.
And finally, KFC has introduced a new design for city centre restaurants; following the opening of its new restaurant on Newcastle’s busy Northumberland Street. The new design marks KFC’s return to developing new restaurants in the high street so customers can get KFC wherever they are. The new restaurant design which is the smallest yet for KFC, has been specifically designed to fit into the tighter spaces, more commonly available in busier locations. Despite their reduced size, the new restaurants feature a fully functional kitchen offering customers their favourite Original Recipe KFC menu items as well as comfortable space to dine in.
With all this and more, it’s time to sit back and tuck into another helping of Premier Hospitality.
