The Bridge in Prestbury, Cheshire launches
The Bridge in Prestbury, Cheshire has officially revealed their new-look at a special launch party on Thursday 11 October. The evening was attended by over 180 guests.
Earlier in the summer, The Bridge was bought by Flat Cap Hotels, a Cheshire-based hotel group, who have successfully renovated The Vicarage in Cranage and The Courthouse in Knutsford.
Flat Cap Hotels was set up by brothers Dominic and Oliver Heywood in 2015. The team embarked upon restoring The Bridge to its former glory and reinstating it back into the community three months ago.
The grade II listed building has been lovingly restored, with a host of original features uncovered during the refurbishment including stone and parquet flooring and wooden beams throughout.
The first phase of the relaunch includes a new bar and restaurant, a Garden Room, along with a new-look lobby and reception area.
Guests were greeted with a glass of fizz on arrival and invited on a tour of The Whiteside Suite which was dressed for a wedding by Butterfly Events. Prestbury Flowers provided beautiful Christmas wreaths for a selection of tables to showcase the festive dining available at The Bridge.
Moving back into the bar and restaurant, guests were treated to live music by Christie Bratherton. The restaurant has taken inspiration from the beautiful gardens at the rear of the hotel, which overlook the Rover Bollin, with jewel-toned chairs in peacock blue and emerald green, plus a bright, light-filled Garden Room facing the terraced gardens with botanical print chairs and parquet flooring.
Savoury canapés including beetroot blinis with horseradish sour cream, spiced tiger prawns, and chicken and apricot terrine were served, along with dessert canapés of mini mango cheesecakes and mini eclairs with chocolate, pear and ginger cream.
Guests were given a gift of ‘Prestbury Pounds’ to take home – money off vouchers to revisit The Bridge for drinks, dinner or afternoon tea.
