QCM Equipment is working with Michelin starred chef Josh Eggleton once more, refurbishing the kitchen at his flagship Pony & Trap near Bristol.
To keep disruption of Eggleton’s business to an absolute minimum the work is being done in phases, working overnight from Sunday evening to Tuesday morning.
New flooring, electrical rewiring and wall tiling has been completed and QCM has supplied bespoke fabrication including a 3metre long mobile kitchen pass and workstations with granite tops, as well as a ceiling mounted two tier heated gantry, Foster undercounter refrigeration and a Rational SCC oven set-up for 60x40cm bakery trays.
The final phase will see a new kitchen ventilation system fitted and a bespoke Control Induction suite with drop in FriFri fryers, Adande drawer, two inset planchas, rise and fall grill and the unique Slider induction plate.
Eggleton was recently spotted with QCM at The Restaurant Show at Olympia where the completed suite was on the Control Induction stand. He commented: “We are always striving for the next level at The Pony & Trap and the new Control Induction range will allow us to push on. It saves me time, it’s lowering costs, and allows us to do so much more in the kitchen.”
Gerry Oakley of QCM said: “This is the second bespoke induction suite we have installed since the summer, and we have worked with Control Induction for some time on several projects for ethical restaurant group Friska and Bath Rugby Club. We find them really flexible to work with; they have real focus on meeting customers’ needs so are an ideal partner for us in our restaurant work.”
