Whilst lots of local people have seen the back view of our new restaurant and bar from the bridge, not many have seen what will, in the not too distant future, be our front entrance. To be fair, our hoarding to keep the site safe is actually hiding the front door itself but we think it will make a fantastic entrance once we are up and running. Whilst we like to think we know a bit about food and wine, we consider ourselves very fortunate to be so well supported by a great team of professionals and builders who have advised us all the way.
Progress so far is that we have installed all the steelwork now to finish off our top floor dining area and internal walls are now being built to create the different areas within the building. The kitchen is particularly complicated with all the different items of equipment measured to the millimetre to ensure it fits into our designated area.
Fitting out a new restaurant from scratch is so different to when the Roux Brothers started their business in the 1960s. We now have to focus on not just food and wine, but also things like WiFi, till systems, credit card payment systems, online reservations, phone systems, health and safety, data protection etc etc. It’s a great challenge but we are loving it.
We shall keep our Facebook friends and followers in touch with progress!
“Eat breakfast like a King…”
Roux at Skindles is open for breakfast from 8.30am on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays for arguably the most important meal of the day.
