Brewery chain McMullen has specified the latest refrigeration equipment from Adande for its newest Baroosh bar and restaurant.
The venue, in Marlow, is the latest of six Baroosh outlets opened by McMullen and one of over 100 pubs within the brewer’s estate.
The Marlow site features an open plan food preparation area, which allows customers to see, hear and smell the kitchen theatre, encouraging dining. Typically, the pub serves over 1,200 main meals and up to 300 snacks per week.
Adande supplied four of its patented refrigerated two drawer units, which are located beneath the food preparation worktop on the kitchen side of the pass.
Three of the units are operated at chilled temperatures for the storage of fresh ingredients and meal portions, with the other Adande unit operating at freezer temperature for the storage of frozen food.
Adande also supplied a single drawer Chef Base unit, for the storage of fresh meat, which is located beneath the kitchen’s chargrill.
Paul Robbins, food development manager at McMullen, said the ability to locate the Adande drawers beneath the food preparation worktop was an important factor in their specification.
“In a busy kitchen, such as this, there are major operational advantages in kitchen staff having ingredients at their fingertips. The fact that they don’t have to leave their workstation to fetch food speeds up service significantly. Food stored in the large capacity drawers is also easier to access than it would be in conventional upright refrigeration cabinets.”
Baroosh offers a comprehensive variety of drinks and an eclectic range of dishes, from traditional English favourites, such as sausage with bubble and squeak, to Mediterranean-influenced sharing dishes.
The restaurant provides an all-day dining experience, serving breakfast, brunch, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner.
