Lakes Catering Maintenance (LCM) has just completed a £270,000 project in Windermere to transform the former Lighthouse Restaurant into what has been renamed Brown Sugar.
Built in 1877, Brown Sugar is one of Windermere’s oldest and most historic buildings. It started life as an independent chemist and was later bought by Boots, who remained in the building until 1990.
LCM MD Leigh Howard commented: “The project has been of one of our more challenging of the year. A basement kitchen in the heart of Windermere village has, of course, presented logistical challenges; the extraction system has not been straightforward to say the least and the kitchen had to be craned in through an existing beer cellar hatch and then reassembled in position.”
The distributor also supplied and fitted all to the bar equipment and fabrications for the top floor bar, ground floor bar and supplied an Urban Cultivator to provide the kitchen with a fresh supply of micro herbs.
The kitchen equipment consists of a Charvet 900 Centre Island supplied by Charvet Premier Ranges, an Adande refrigerated drawer, Rational SSC Duo combi ovens, a Synergy Grill, Gram refrigeration, Hobart warewashing, extraction system and fabrications from Inox Fabrications and Gamko bar refrigeration.
Howard concluded: “I would like to thank Lee Preston from Inox Fabrications and Ian Clow and the team at Charvet Premier Ranges for all their support with this project.”
