On April 1st 2011, we took over the catering at the Bosworth Battlefield Heritage Centre and Country Park in Sutton Cheney, Leicestershire following a tender process with the Eastern Shires Purchasing Organisation (ESPO). At this Heritage site we operate catering for the Tithe Barn Restaurant, Bar and a meeting room

Entry to the site is free and within our proposal, we offered investment of over £25.000 and a rental based on 12% of net sales

We undertook some refurbishment, local advertising and installed a Costa Coffee offer. We hold a full on- licence and open a full bar service in support of functions and events including Wedding Receptions at this picturesque and atmospheric venue

RESULTS

  • Sales up 38% for our first quarter to June 2011
  • Significant increase in Events and Conferencing
  • A high degree of satisfaction from the client (Leicestershire County Council) and visitors
