THE OLD WHITE BEAR

Where?

In the heart of Hampstead, this historic pub of the Old White Bear was closed for 7 years.  To the delight of the local residents, it reopened its doors in December 2021.

What was required?

The premises had been derelict for 7 years and required a complete gutting out and creation of a fully functional kitchen.

The result?

The challenge of this project was that all the commercial kitchen was to be created from scratch, within a compact space in the basement of the property!

• A fully bespoke kitchen was designed with bespoke stainless-steel fabrications throughout.  A complete Falcon cookline, with a Naboo Combi Oven.

• A Williams chefs draw refrigerator was used to optimise the space, a bespoke Foster counter fridge with salad well for the island area and hot-pass.

• A low ceiling obliged a bespoke canopy, with a fresh air system across all the cookline.

• A bespoke slimline food prep area and fully bespoke wash area including a Maidaid hooded dishwasher.

• Upstairs a range of Williams undercounter fridges were supplied and a Maidaid glasswasher to keep up with a heavy service.

For more storage an Infrico undercounter Fridge was supplied and installed under a bespoke Mangal cooking area.  This particular model, was deep enough to allow storage of skewers used in their traditional Turkish cuisine.

We supplied and installed all bespoke Stainless-Steel fabrications for the prep and wash area.

As well as supplying and installing a Maidaid Dishwasher to keep up with the quick service, a 10-Grid Rational Combi Oven to increase cuisine output and an all new Blueseal Cookline and a new Williams undercounter Freezer.

THE ALBERT

Where?

Based in the heart of Primrose Hill, London, this premises was fully renovated in Sept 2020, and has now returned to it’s former glory.

What was required?

Having been closed for such a long time the premises needed a full refurbishment. This project had the added challenge of having a small kitchen in the basement. As it didn’t serve a lot of food previously, it was necessary to create a fully functional kitchen as well as a new preparation area and wash area.

The result?

• Our design team were given free reign to propose a fully functional kitchen and wash area. One of the old cellars was transformed in to the wash area and a bespoke kitchen and prep station was also designed. A pully system was used to lower all the large equipment through the cellar trap doors just to the back of the premises (and yes, even the very large upright fridges and freezers were lowered through that)!

• Wash area: Bespoke Sinks for compact space & Maidaid Dishwasher.

• Kitchen & Prep area: Single upright Fosters Fridge & single upright Williams Freezer, a 3 door Counter Fridge with drawers & a bespoke Gantry (heated and ambient). Fully bespoke Blueseal Cookline, Fryer and Naboo Combi Oven.

• Upstairs: a Maidaid Ice Machine and 2 Door Williams Bottle Cooler to ensure there’s a cool drink for every punter.

The importance of a great kitchen design
