16 Hospitality has announced the acquisition of its latest site, located south of Warrington on the Tarporely Road. The site, once known as The Hollow Tree, will be joining the several Cheshire sites already owned by 16 Hospitality. The site will undergo a full refurbishment as well as being given a new name and new menu.
The new site will reflect 16 Hospitality’s simple yet effective ethos; to offer quality British food, served by a friendly team of hospitality experts in comfortable surroundings.
Managing director of 16 Hospitality, Edward Barlow said: “We are thrilled to have secured this site as it has so much potential to do really well. It’s in an enviable location with lots to do and see on the doorstep, and we are going to be putting building plans and a full refurbishment into fruition, including en-suite guest rooms. We are sure there will be a positive reaction to our plans from visitors and locals alike, as our research has showed that there is demand for a quality Inn with real ale, fresh, unpretentious yet quality food and comfortable accommodation.
“The refurbishment plans are extensive, and we’re hoping to open mid-2017. The vision I have for the site is to follow the winning formula that’s ensured the success at our other four sites. We want the pub to become a firm favourite with the locals and visitors, known for its great food, served by great people in a relaxed, comfortable setting,” he said.
“We’ve had our best quarter yet with our pubs in Anglesey up 8.9% like for like on 2015 despite increased competition this year. 16 Hospitality in total is 5.4% ahead like for like and broke a record £1m sales during the seven-week summer break. We’re looking to capitalise on the current success we’re achieving in Cheshire and Anglesey and continue to expand our hospitality business across the North West of England and Wales.
“The focus that drives all our operations is simply to make our customers happy and keep them coming back again and again. Top customer service and quality food and ales combined with clean and comfortable lodgings all combine to create great experiences for all.”
16 Hospitality is committed to nurturing talent, and this is revealed through the formation of The Hub, an in-house training programme open to all ages, throughout the year. Students accrue important sector knowledge and experiences through hands-on activities including wine-tasting, sea-fishing, coffee buying and pouring lessons.
