The 23 bedrooms, including suites, Spa, 2 bars, 2 restaurants and a central kitchen exude style and class. The brief was that the guests were not to be disturbed by any sight, sound or smell of kitchen activity. This was achieved by goods inwards, all necessary storage, food preparation, utensil and dishwashing being carried out in the basement.

Delivery of the clean ware and prepared food is via a designated clean lift to the upper floor kitchen whereas the soiled crockery and utensils are despatched downstairs in a separate dirties lift. The areas are kept meticulously clean by the use of wash down hose reels and the inclusion of ADO-Metal UK stainless steel floor channels and roll grids which are lifted, rolled and sanitised in the dishwasher.

“After visiting, I would like to express my gratitude for the courtesy extended to me by Sterling during my recent pre-opening inspection of the catering facilities at Whatley Manor.The standard of equipment fitted and the quality of work flows designed in the kitchen are the best I have seen in a catering establishment. I must congratulate you and your clients for working to such a high standard.”
