Cheshire hotel group, Flat Cap Hotels, have re-launched The Bridge in Prestbury, with a new bar and restaurant.
The restaurant is the third property to be launched by the Cheshire-based hotel group. Following the successful refurbishment of The Vicarage in Holmes Chapel, and The Courthouse in Knutsford.
The first phase of the relaunch which has taken three months, includes a new bar and restaurant, a garden room, along with a new-look lobby and reception area. The lobby has been opened up to create more space for guests to enjoy teas and coffees.
The restaurant décor includes jewel-toned chairs in peacock blue and emerald green, plus a bright, light-filled Garden Room facing the terraced gardens with botanical print chairs and parquet flooring. The new bar has been renovated in soft tones of green, with a feature wall of mirrors and the original beams have been exposed during the renovations.
Steven Tuke, executive chef of the group has transformed the menu, focusing on local producers in Cheshire and dishes include 12-hour cured salmon, English fillet of beef, cauliflower cheese risotto and Buttercross Farm pork steak.
Oliver Heywood, co-founder of Flat Cap Hotels, said: “We always knew that The Bridge was a special hotel. It’s at the heart of the village and The Bridge holds special memories for many local people who’ve held weddings and birthdays at the hotel over the years.
“We wanted to uncover the heritage of the building and at the same time invest in the hotel’s future. We’re excited to be unveiling the first phase of the investment and look forward to the local people having happy memories of The Bridge for many years to come.”
The restaurant is open from 7am to 11pm Monday to Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 8am to midnight and from 8am to 10pm on Sundays. Afternoon tea is served in the Garden Room daily from 12 to 5pm.
