The Old Sawmill, Clapham – Case SudyThe Old Sawmill at Clapham has recently undergone extensive renovations to the 12th century mill. As a listed building, work has been undertaken with much care and attention to conserve the heritage and unique history of the building.At the entrance to the popular Ingleborough Estate Nature Trail it operates as a ticket office for the large number of visitors who pass through each year. We were delighted to be approached to support the team with their new cafe project which involved the installation of a new kitchen and equipment for the front of house areas. John, our Service Manager, led this project and over the course of several site visits, room plans were drawn up. Once determined we all settled fairly quickly on the layout and what equipment was required. We were on a tight deadline with the builders and electricians which John managed perfectly, often without the clients on site, and made sure everything was in place when it was needed.The final order was for a cooker, oven,fryer, various fridges, dishwasher system, racking, and front bar server. The beautiful counter top was already installed when we got to the front house install, so it was a bit of a challenge to source a water boiler that would fit the space but we got there in the end.For the final piece of the jigsaw, Maria looked to source her pans, crockery, and sundries for the cafe from us too. In true Sal style she managed to source a great deal with our suppliers and even threw in two free fly killers!Sal says:Nothing for this customer was too much trouble and we are delighted to have completed the project on point and on budget. Maria and the team were a delight to work with and advise and we are very grateful for their trust and communication for the duration of the project. Starting a new cafe with little previous experience is daunting enough in its own right, but when it comes to planning the kitchen, good advice means a lot. LCM were very helpful and thorough. They listened, advised and worked well within our budget. From choice of equipment through to kitchen layout and installation, their experience and support was just what we needed. In retrospect, there is very little we would have done differently and we have a kitchen that fulfils all our needs. – Maria, The Old Sawmill, ClaphamIf you’re looking to upgrade your cafe, bistro or restaurant kitchen, Team Lakes can support you to ensure your space has all the equipment you need in the right place to ensure your day to day catering is as efficient as it can be.Get in touch with the team today for a free site visit, consultation and quote.
