Catering Design Group has completed one of its most ambitious projects yet — transforming a huge metal framed steel building into a contemporary farm shop and restaurant with commercial kitchen.
The project at Arrow Farm in Worksop saw the Daventry firm design and build a high-end farm shop with supporting butchery, restaurant and kitchen.
The company’s brief was to create three very distinct zones and ensure that the farm’s home grown produce and locally-sourced meats and cheeses were properly displayed.
The state-of-the-art kitchen supports the restaurant, where a team of in-house chefs have the facility to cater for up to 90 covers across the breakfast, lunch and dinner services.
Philip Howard, managing director of Catering Design Group, said there was a growing trend towards consumers supporting local farms, safe in the knowledge that they’ll be able to enjoy good, fresh, locally sourced produce.
“In turn, farmers are capitalising on the huge success of farmers markets and programmes such as River Cottage to make good use of old barns and outbuildings,” he said. “Arrow Farm was a fantastic project and challenge for CDG. We took a steel shell measuring 648m² and turned it into three very distinctive zones.”
CDG was established in 1990 and provides design-led solutions for the hospitality and leisure industry, including interior design, kitchen planning and implementation.
