Builders’ fast food approach pleases hotel

Have your say

Peak District hotel and restaurant East Lodge has turned to Chesterfield construction group DH Builders to carry out a £250,000 kitchen refurbishment in double quick time.

East Lodge managing director, Iain Hardman, said: “This was no ordinary kitchen facelift but a complete redesign, including removing several load-bearing three foot thick original walls, so to complete ahead of schedule surprised and pleased us enormously.”

Chefs were back in the kitchen cooking in less than three weeks and Mr Hardman was full of praise for DH’s Dean Hollis and his team.

Mr Hardman said: “The kitchen is the heart of our business and once we had taken the decision to invest in the improvements, we needed a swift completion and Dean and his team delivered.

“In fact, we were so impressed with the ‘no problem’ response to everything, that Dean and his team are now cracking on with a new project at the hotel.”
