Rockliffe Hall unveils new safety measures ahead of proposed opening date for hotels Rockliffe Hall has unveiled new measures to ensure that the property is ready for guests if the Government gives the go-ahead for hotels to reopen.

The luxury resort in Hurworth, near Darlington, will be introducing new procedures to ensure that everyone adheres to social distancing rules. These will include an online check-in service, temperature checks, reduced occupancy levels, heightened hygiene practices, unique signage, digital menus and online ordering. The hotel also plans to introduce virtual services


such as video calling Concierge and virtual room tours, and will also offer complimentary bike use for guests. Jason Adams, Rockliffe Hall’s managing director, said: “Whilst the hotel has been closed we’ve made the best use of the time of those who haven’t been furloughed. We’ve come up with innovative new ways to make sure our guests still get the luxury service they’d expect when

the hotel re-opens, in very different circumstances to what any of us are used to. “Of course, we’ve also introduced rigorous protocols to ensure everyone stays safe, but under our team’s PPE you can rest assured there’ll be lots of big smiles and you’ll enjoy the usual first class Rockliffe hospitality.”

When architecture and lighting design collide It all started in a garage in East London, building custom motorbikes. Buster + Punch innovates with solid metals, to transform ordinary functional fittings into extraordinary interior details for residential, hotels and commercial projects.

The brand is deep rooted in London’s fashion, music and sub-culture scene and harnesses this energy to elevate the products.The horizontal range of products comes in a limited palette of unique finishes to help designers specify with confidence and ensure a perfect match. Exhaust is a new collection of the trailblazing interior spotlights inspired by motorbike exhaust just launched. The range features four new products; a fixed, an adjustable and a track spotlight, alongside a pendant light. Decorative yet functional, Exhaust is designed to elevate task lighting to a new level, providing directional illumination to interior surfaces and architectural detailing. Each Exhaust spotlight is fitted with a beautifully machined, solid metal baffle designed to capture and diffuse light. The unique baffle design features Buster + Punch’s unmistakable new linear knurl pattern and signature torx screws, alongside a precisioncut honeycomb grill, engineered to create a delicate metallic glow whilst also emitting a precise, non-glare, directional light. “Exhaust finally puts functional lighting back in the spotlight,” explained Massimo Buster Minale, founder and creative director. All too often forgotten as back- ground lighting, we wanted to create a compelling range of decorative task lights that would fit

Steel leads the way in new metallics and unlike an applied finish, the cutting-edge process means that no two finishes are ever the same.

Developed by the Buster + Punch design studio, Burnt Steel is an innovative/ fashion-forward finish first launched in Spring 2020. When a motorbike exhaust runs lean, the excessive heat turns the metal into a stunning rainbow of blue, purple and yellow. Harnessing an oxide effect, when applied to marine-grade stainless steel the result is a highly original and unique metal effect. Burnt

Hotel Indigo launches workspace packages for essential workers The bespoke packages are tailored to suit different working environment preferences Hotel Indigo is extending its support of essential workers by launching bespoke workspace packages for those who urgently require an office space during the pandemic. The Manchester site has been supporting key workers by housing NHS staff and other frontline workers, but is now looking to extend its support to essential business workers through the newly-launched deal. The bespoke, all-inclusive day packages are “designed for guests to get the best out of their day”, and a variety of bedrooms are now available for workers to book. In a statement, the hotel said: “Each


package is tailored to suit different working environment preferences, whether views of the city in a top floor suite will inspire you or simply the peace and quiet of a cosy tea room, Hotel Indigo has got you covered. “With home away from home décor, workstations, Wi-Fi and multiple charging points and an option to include breakfast, lunch and aperitif, it has all the components needed for the perfect work environment.” Its packages range from the Creative Thinker package, which provides city views, flip-charts and a working desk, to the Analytical package, which provides a “quiet space with no distractions”.

A package for two is also available, allowing multiple workers to operate in a socially-distanced space, while packages can also be upgraded to include overnight stays. Paul Upham of Hotel Indigo said: “We’re delighted to announce this new offering to our incredible essential workers. “Working from home for months on end can be challenging, especially having kids around and other many distractions, so it’s great that we can extend our offering to essential business workers to provide them a different work setting that can inspire and motivate them.”

As designers and manufacturers of wool rich bespoke carpets, we have always been in the business of creating sustainable products that enhance any space both in terms of aesthetics and quality. organic compounds (VOCs), a woolrich carpet will provide a cleaner, more comfortable space to sit back, relax and breathe in. Alongside the comfort of their guests, 1 Hotel is a brand whose focus, as with Ulster Carpets, is also on prioritising sustainability, environmental protection and community engagement. On their website, Barry Sternlicht their CEO & Chairman says: “I wanted to capture the beauty of nature in a hotel and commit to safeguarding it as best I can, a responsibility that I believe we all share. It’s 1 world. But 1 is more than a hotel – it’s a philosophy and a platform for change.” As industry pioneers we continually review our processes to find more efficient and sustainable ways to manufacture luxury carpet, helping our clients to meet their own sustainable goals. Wool is a rapidly renewable material as well as luxurious and versatile, at Ulster Carpets we use only the best wool sourced from Britain, Ireland & New Zealand. Wool fleece re-grows every 12 months providing a constant supply

of high quality raw material. Naturally stain repellent, flame resistant, non combustible and easily cleaned, wool is both sustainable and a safe choice. There are many health benefits from including wool within indoor spaces. Research shows that wool carpets effectively trap dust and allergens in its top layer. Its natural filtering effect makes it perfect for people with asthma or allergies. Naturally absorbing humidity and volatile

Organic, raw, natural and reclaimed materials are therefore an important part of any design brief they develop. From using reclaimed driftwood as wall coverings, plant walls and green spaces to details such as ditching plastic key cards in favour of recycled wooden tags & providing hangers made from 100% post consumer waste. Therefore commissioning bespoke wool rich carpets from Ulster Carpets for their 1 Hotel South Beach, Miami was an obvious choice. A retreat wholly inspired by its natural surroundings, namely the 600-feet of beach along the Atlantic Ocean, Ulster Carpet’s creative team took inspiration from these elements to create the texture and look of wood grain, echoing the driftwood and natural materials in the interior of the hotel. The bold yet calming pattern moves though the hotel pulling all the strands together of this sustainable and luxurious hotel. As a company, Ulster Carpets were delighted to be part of 1 Hotel’s vision, where our beautifully crafted product plays a role in delivering a sustainable experience without compromising on quality or artistic flair.

A World Without Wires... Ever since their first introduction, smartphones have been accompanied by traditional wired chargers, with a cable connected to a mains adapter. They’re simple and efficient, if at times a little impractical. But many new phones also include wireless charging options. Devices from Apple, Google, Huawei, LG, Motorola, Samsung, Sony and Xiaomi all adhere to the Qi standard. Developed by the Wireless Power Consortium, Qi (based on the Chinese word for material energy or energy flow, and pronounced ‘chee’) uses inductive charging, a system whereby an electric current creates a fluctuating magnetic field in the charging pad. This field induces an electrical current in any compatible device placed on the pad, which is then used to charge the battery. It’s a wonderfully convenient system: there are no exposed electrical connections to wear out or suffer

damage, and there are no cables strung across the room, waiting for people to walk into them. The process of charging is slightly slower – by around 15% – but this is outweighed by the general practicality and ease-of-use. Although still in its relative infancy, Qi wireless charging is rapidly growing in popularity. A recent survey by the Wireless Power Consortium saw a distinct increase in interest for wireless charging while people are out and about – most notably in airports, hotels and restaurants, where wired charging can be problematic. Wireless charging systems are perfect for hotel rooms. They are inconspicuous, easy to install and secure, and need practically zero maintenance. And as Qi is a global standard, a single pad will work with a wide range of devices, irrespective of make or brand. Google, LG and Sony adopted wireless charging in 2012; it’s been in Samsung phones since 2015; in Apple phones and smartwatches since 2017; and both Huawei and Xiaomi intro-

duced wireless charging in 2018. Indeed, 2018 proved a watershed year for the technology, when the market grew by 77%, with more than 366 million devices shipped, around 270 million of those being smartphones. There are currently more than 245 phones on the market that have Qi built in, as well as a number of phone cases that add Qi wireless charging to older models. Adding Qi wireless charging to a hotel or entertainment venue couldn’t be easier. The Brandstand CubieDot, CubiePoint and CubieSpot tabletop chargers offer a neat and elegant pad onto which guests simply place their device. The CubieDot and CubiePoint can be located anywhere near a mains outlet. For guest convenience, the CubiePoint also includes 2 USB charging ports for dual charging functionality. For the ultimate in secure, discreet charging, the CubieSpot can be flush-fitted into a desk, community (lobby) or bedside table. The Brandstand CubieDuo and CubieTrio bedside clocks, meanwhile, deliver useful multifunctionality in a stylish form

factor. Both devices provide Qi wireless pads and USB charging ports, plus an easy-to-use alarm clock with snooze and dimmer operations. The CubieTrio goes one better, boasting a pair of mains power sockets (110V) embedded in its top surface, making it ideal for any gadget-loving guest. Brandstand manufactures a successful line of power and charging products for the hospitality industry. See our full line of wireless charging products, designed for Qi compliance on our website. Qi Wireless Charging is the wireless standard adopted by most mobile devices including Samsung & Apple. Brandstand is a member of the Qi Wireless Power Consortium.

Bob Pease, CEO/president of the Brewers Association, the not-for-profit trade association representing small and independent American craft brewers, suggests creative beer and no-cook food pairing options for reopening

With social distancing likely to remain in place for some time adopting a creative approach to your menu is one way of luring customers back through the door. One such example of a different culinary experience is a pairing menu of American craft beer with no-cook foods such as cheese, charcuterie or chocolate. Beer is the perfect partner for these foods because…. • • •

Acidity, carbonation and bitterness in beer cut through fat Malt found in beer complements creamy, nutty, earthy or caramel flavours and contrasts with salt Ingredients used in craft beer (especially carbonation and alcohol) can alter the texture of both the rind and the paste of cheese and provide complementary and/or contrasting flavours for each

Here are a few guidelines for getting started: •


Cheese, like beer, should be served at the correct temperature. Take cheese out of the fridge and let it warm to room temperature before pairing. Keep beer at the correct temperature for the style.

• •

Match intensities. Delicate, lighter American craft beers often pair well with young or mild cheeses, while stronger flavoured beer tend to work better with full-flavoured, mature cheeses. The same applies to cold meats. Look for common ground. For example, a malty craft beer pairs well with a nutty cheese, or a hoppy, bitter beer cuts through a cheese with a high fat content Think about other sensations and interactions such as acidic or salty cheese with a hop-forward beer Charcuterie refers to smoked, cured or cooked meats and generally involves salting (preserving) and air-drying, and this effects how they interact with beer

Palate balancers – nuts, dried fruits, fresh fruit, honey and pickled items all make great additions to craft beer and cheese Aim for 25g of cheese per 100ml pairing of beer

Look out for beers with speciality ingredients such as coffee, chocolate, peanut butter and many more that offer endless possibilities for pairing with chocolate. Restauranteurs and chefs are welcome to make use of the free resources available on www.brewersassociation. org including the newly updated and expanded Beer & Food Professional Course downloadable free of charge.

EAT. DRINK. SLEEP July 2020 Suggested American craft beer and Cheese Pairings CHEESE STYLE



Soft Cheese

Wheat beer, Lambic-style beer

Mascarpone, ricotta, mozzarella, goats cheese etc will match the delicate notes of the beer without overwhelming the palate

Semi-soft Cheese

Kolsch, Pilsner, Pale Ale

Cambozola, Reblochon etc can be enhanced by a high level of carbonation. Salty cheese like Feta, Caerphilly or Wensleydale needs a thirst-quenching, refreshing style to combat its dryness

Hard Cheese

Brown Ale, Imperial Stout, Bock

Cheddar, Gruyere, Emmental, Parmesan, Manchego etc echo the nutty, earthy notes of a brown ale or stout. These beers add creaminess on the palate to a hard cheese

Blue Cheese

IPA or Imperial IPA, Barley wine

Strongly flavoured cheeses such as Roquefort, Stilton, St Agur, Danish Blue etc can be successfully balanced with bolder beer styles

Natural Rind Cheeses

Golden/Blonde ale, Pale ale

Brie, camembert, gorgonzola etc have a rich creamy base that can be refreshed with a golden, blonde or pale ale.

Washed Rind Cheeses

Belgian-style ales

Vacherin, Taleggio, Port Salut, Stinking Bishop etc. Beers bring out the cheeses’ delicate sweet note and can cut through the funk of the washed rind



For cold-cuts, smoked meats and charcuterie try: TYPE OF CUT



Prosciutto di Parma (pork)

A classification of ham from the EmiliaRomagna region of Italy. Known for its umami flavour

Pilsner, Doppelbock or Saison

Bresaola (beef )

Dark red cut of beef, thinly sliced. One of the leanest cured meats

Brown Ale

Speck (pork)

Smoked, cured meat, milder and firmer in texture than prosciutto

Smoked Beer, American Pale Ale

Saucisson Sec (pork)

A French-style salami. Typically drycured and rich in flavour

Robust Porter

Chorizo (pork)

A distinctive bright red colour due to addition of smoked paprika.

Smoked Beer, Pilsner

Mortadella (pork)

Cooked sausage made from ground pork meat, garnished with pistachios and small cubes of fat for extra flavour

Belgian-style Trappist ale

Salami Piccante (pork)

Can be spicy to mild. Spiced with paprika and hot to mild red peppers known as peperoni

Imperial IPA


Usually made from ground pork, duck or chicken liver and spices


Finally, for chocolate…. •


White Chocolate – creamy texture, no cocoa solids, usually contains 20% cocoa butter, sugar and 14% milk solids. Pair with Witbier, Brown Ale, Sweet Stout, fruited Wheatbeer Milk Chocolate - usually around 35-45 cacao solids. Pair with:

American pale ale, Brown ale, Amber ale •

Dark chocolate – at least 35% cacao solids but commonly above 70%. Pair with: Robust Porter, Imperial Stout, Dubbel, Lambic style beers

Look out for beers with speciality ingredients such as coffee, chocolate,

peanut butter and many more that offer endless possibilities for pairing with chocolate. Restauranteurs and chefs are welcome to make use of the free resources available on including the newly updated and expanded Beer & Food Professional Course downloadable free of charge.

The Room Bridgewood Manor has many different rooms available, from standard rooms all the way up to your own private suites. I was lucky enough to be given an executive room during my stay. The room was an excellent size, with twin or king beds, both were available. The room had character and came with its very own en-suite bathroom to the left as you walk in, the freefalling showers are the perfect way to wind down after the pool. It also has an extremely large work desk and satellite TV. I found the hotel room exceptionally clean and tidy. Each room offers complimentary Wi-fi to their guest, so a perfect destination for people on their travels or working away from home.




The Food Dining within the Squires restaurant had a wonderfully secluded feel to it. Serving a wide range of comfort foods and carefully crafted dishes by the top in-house chefs. I opted for the Chicken & Chorizo press to start, with Roasted red pepper puree, garlic scented chive & chickpea salad. For the main course I went for the breast of corn fed chicken – a deliciously cooked Roasted corn fed chicken, Sundried Tomato & Spinach risotto, parmesan shards & micro watercress both of which left me both satisfied but also craving more. Full menu available here.

classic British dishes with a commitment to quality ingredients and depth of flavour, the breakfast menu consisted of a variety of cooked and continental options with a selection of pastries and fruit juices. Bridgewood Manor Hotel & Spa really has the feel of a home away from home, where the traditional look has met with the modern touches in harmony.

eCatering, one of the UK’s leading low cost online catering equipment suppliers has started 2020 with a surge in sales and an influx of new stock replacing items which sold fast through the January Sale period.

EAT. DRINK. SLEEP July 2020 The Hoxton Hotel Group has recently opened a new mixed-use development comprising a 192-bed hotel with boutique style co-working office spaces above. The Hoxton, Southwark is a redevelopment of former social security offices, located on the western side of Blackfriars Road in London. The Hoxton Group already have hotels in London, Europe and The USA and this latest London offering is designed with the same ethos in mind, to create vibrant spaces that are cosy, welcoming and a home away from home. Eurobrick has been leading the brick slip cladding sector for nearly 30 years and has extensive experience of supplying I-Clad for interior fit-outs in the hospitality and leisure sector. They supplied around 1570m² of their I-Clad brick cladding system, which is specially designed for interiors. Comprising a composite of a 12mm plasterboard panel with a ribbed skin bonded to it, fixings, adhesive, brick slips and mortar, I-Clad is an easy alternative to traditional masonry. I-Clad’s slim profile means that a real brick finish can be created with less intrusion to the interior floor space. St Ives Cream Rustica slips and corners from Eurobrick’s Classic range were used, complementing the loft style concept for the interior. St Ives Cream Rustica slips are a cut brick offering a blend of cream/grey hues with a tumbled, distressed finish. Eurobrick’s specially formulated Europoint mortar was chosen in white to finish. The end result is tactile, characterful and stylish, in keeping with the desired aesthetic.

Thinking long term can save restaurants time during busy days By spending more time on administrative tasks and longterm planning, research suggests that you can actually free up time. Research among owners and managers of independent restaurants highlights the crucial impact time has on all aspects of running a restaurant and how learning to think more long term and make better use of resources can improve your business. As a restaurant manager, every little detail needs to work perfectly when guests are lining up, and there are things you can do to improve efficiency in your restaurant. Research shows that managers suffer from heavy workload as well as a lack of control and planning. The research found that managers risk spending time on things that are not the most efficient use of their time, for example supervising staff to make sure they prioritise the tasks they are supposed to. Restaurants are shown to benefit from prioritising time management and making sure to use the limited time of both management and staff in the best way. This helps staff to focus on giving guests the best experience, and it also frees up more time for restaurant managers to focus on the creative aspects of running a restaurant and improving their business, such as serving great food and growing sales. One way to plan longterm is for example to find the right solutions for each specific restaurant which will result in a better workflow. Taking limited time into account To ease the workload for restaurants and minimise unnecessary time-consuming tasks Tork has launched the new napkin dispenser system, Tork Xpressnap Fit®. The Tork Xpressnap® System is the number one napkin dispensing system in the world, and the new innovation was developed specifically with independent restaurants and small chains in mind.


With Tork Xpressnap Fit, Tork wants to help managers to make the most of valuable time and space, and its different features have been developed with this in mind. The Tork Xpressnap Fit table top dispenser dispenses upwards so that every inch of space on restaurant tables can be used. The one-at-a time dispensing reduces waste and cuts unused napkins thrown away by more than 50 percent*. It also serves almost twice as many guests between refills, resulting in less time spent on refills**. Tork Xpressnap Fit also has a customizable advertising panel – AD-a-Glance® – for operators to be creative, communicate with customers, and share marketing messages on the dispenser. * 2-ply napkin in Counter dispenser compared to Counter fold (Tork Dispenser: 271600 and Tork Refill: 10935); 2-ply napkin in Table top dispenser compared to Fast fold (Tork Dispenser: 271800 and Tork Refill: 10933) ** 2-ply napkin in Table top dispenser compared to Fast fold (Tork Dispenser: 271800 and Tork Refill: 10933)
