The catering division of Servest, the leading facilities management service provider, has recently been awarded a contract to operate the café at Dean Castle Country Park, part of East Ayrshire Leisure in Scotland. The café is undergoing refurbishment as part of the park’s major redevelopment project, which will give visitors an all-new food offer alongside the newly improved facilities.
Situated in Kilmarnock, the park’s new look café, complete with a mezzanine level, will be surrounded by glass to allow views out over the country park and a new decking area for al-fresco dining during the summer months.
Servest Food Co.’s John Fleming, executive chef for Scotland, will be overseeing the revamped menu, which will have a strong emphasis on quality and provenance. In addition to an exciting new menu, Servest Food Co. will also be bringing in their artisan coffee brand Groundhouse – offering an organic and ethically-sourced range of coffees.
As part of the contract, Servest will also be providing food for the many events that take place at the park throughout the year.
Servest’s Tony Winterbottom, business director for catering, commented, “We’re delighted to be partnering with East Ayrshire Leisure on such an exciting new contract. The Servest team are thrilled to be moving into the heritage and leisure market and we’re really looking forward to supporting Dean Castle Country Park in further enhancing what is already a wonderful visitor experience.”
John Griffiths, chief executive of East Ayrshire Leisure has said “With the country park redevelopment project coming to an end in the next few weeks and the new café contract in place, we are looking forward to welcoming visitors from far and wide and think they will be delighted with the improvements that have been made both to the café and the wider park.”
