Temperature specialist, Cold Store Rentals (CSR), recently installed a cold room at a newly-refurbished pub, The Castle Inn in Castle Donnington, Leicestershire.
The installation supported the pub’s kitchen facilities when it opened to the public in the first week of February.
Cold Store Rentals supplied a Viessmann freezer room with Zanotti refrigeration equipment and LED lighting. The equipment is rented on a long term basis, so the pub’s owners may have saved some capital investment.
Steve Prior, director at Cold Store Rentals, explained: “Our engineers worked to supply and install a new internal chiller to the ground floor area, combining Viessmann standard flooring and panels upon the existing site with a Zanotti refrigeration system.”
The Zanotti refrigeration system provides temperatures between 0°C and 15°C suitable for this kitchen application. Cold Store Rentals has also supplied LED lighting with time-adjustable push switches and emergency lighting, plus additional strip florescent lights.
Mark Shaw, owner of The Castle Inn, said: “We bought the pub in September last year and have since completely renovated the entire property.
“We have an authentic wood fired pizza oven and will be offering Spanish and Italian-themed menus including fresh tapas daily, so it’s important that we have somewhere to support our busy kitchen and keep fresh ingredients cool so they don’t spoil.
“We have plans to expand the premises in the future and are pleased that we will be able to use the cold room to support our further expansion.”
