Everyone at Sprint HQ was delighted to see this photo, which was used on the front cover of Catering Insight magazine in July 2012, make a reappearance as the cover photo for Foodservice Equipment’s Twitter page.

The only magazine and website serving purchasing professionals in major restaurant, hotel and mass catering groups, Foodservice Equipment is the sister magazine of Catering Insight, which featured the Sprint team, headed by founder and managing director David Ryan, on the Bath leg of its epic schedule of 11 installations in 12 months for Brasserie Blanc.

Revamped airport pub takes off

airport4 Three years after completing a ground-breaking Jamie Oliver project at Gatwick, the Sprint team has been involved in a high profile airport pub overhaul.

We installed a commercial kitchen and bar at The Airport Pub & Grill near Manchester Airport, which has re-opened its doors after a 16 week closure following substantial investment from Stockport-based Robinsons Brewery.

Located on Ringway Road just 50 feet away from Manchester Airport’s Terminal 3 runway – the closest you can get to a plane without boarding it in the UK – the pub is a popular destination for plane spotters. The menu features British, American and European inspired burgers and steaks and craft and cask beers are available.

The makeover has been described by Robinsons as the most unique refurbishment in the company’s history and also signals a move back into managed houses.

Simon Taylor, business development manager for Robinsons’ managed houses operation, said: “Sprint worked closely with the development team from the very beginning of the concept providing ideas and solutions as we put our scheme together.

“The end result is a great kitchen which will help us meet the needs of our customers efficiently and effectively. The installation was smooth and on time.”

Sprint was also involved in Robinsons projects at The Waggon Inn at Uppermill and The Prince of Orange in Ashton under Lyne.

Many thanks to Robinsons for supplying the photos.

Foundry Vaults victorious

Foundry Vaults 2Sprint is delighted to have been involved in an award-winning pub transformation.

We installed a commercial kitchen at The Foundry Vaults in Llangefni on the island of Anglesey, which has been recognised as best Budget Commercial Interior Design Project at the 2014 Northern Design Awards.

Established in 1819, the Robinsons pub plays a vital role in the community but needed considerable investment to return it to its former glory.

The main trading area was revamped to create an open inviting area for both dining and drinking and the front of the pub was refurbished and decorated to bring a drab façade back to life.

Award judges felt that The Foundry Vaults “had been taken from being an eyesore on the high street to an example of standards for all to strive towards. A positive impact on the community was immediately felt once the pub was re-opened.”

A celebration of Northern design and style, the awards were held at The Devonshire Dome in Buxton.

Cheers as visitors centre wins award

Robinsons visitors centre


Congratulations to Sprint Group client Robinsons Brewery, whose Visitors Centre was named best small visitor attraction of the year at the Marketing Cheshire Annual Awards 2014.

Based at Robinsons’ iconic Unicorn Brewery in Stockport, the family attraction beat off the challenge of Go Ape Delamere, Hack Green Secret Nuclear Bunker and The Jungle to scoop the award at Chester Racecourse on November 27.

Sprint designed and installed a state-of-the-art commercial kitchen at the centre, which opened in March 2013.

We worked with Robinsons and Sprint partners Maidaid, Foster Refrigerator and Blue Seal to create the kitchen, which produces dishes using locally sourced ingredients for both visitors and brewery employees and is also used to help tenants to develop new menus.

Visit our Robinsons Visitors Centre project page for more details.

Sprint’s recent projects for Robinsons include The Airport at Manchester Airport, The Cock at Whaley Bridge, The Waggon at Uppermill, The Prince of Orange in Ashton-under-Lyme and The Friendship Glossop.

Hip, hop, hurray for Wild Rabbit team

Congratulations to Sprint Group client The Wild Rabbit in Kingham, named Pub of the Year in the 2015 edition of the Michelin Eating Out In Pubs Guide.

The Cotswolds pub is described by the guide’s editor Rebecca Burr as “a chocolate box delight” which is “stylish yet rustic, spacious yet cosy, it offers a convivial welcome, knock-out bedrooms and, of course, first-rate food.”

Previously known as the Tollgate Inn, the Oxfordshire pub has been transformed by Lady Bamford of Daylesford Organic into a contemporary rural inn with log fires and leather sofas.

Ms Burr said:  “The Daylesford ethos champions the self-sufficient, the sustainable and the organic. The capable kitchen works with the best organic ingredients to produce seasonal cooking which is British at heart and full of flavour.”
