The Crown Hotel in Bawtry is happily putting the past year of the pandemic behind them, and the team are feeling positive vibes as hospitality comes out of Lockdown with the roadmap – hopefully on the 17th May.
The hotel located in Bawtry, has not sat still during lockdown, and has turned the negative into a positive by taking the time to redevelop the hotel, almost throughout, ready to greet the arrival of leisure guests next month.
Craig Dowie Managing Director explains “While we have remained open for essential business travellers throughout the pandemic, weddings have been put on halt, the bar and restaurant have been closed and no leisure guests have been permitted. We have however used the time wisely to redevelop the hotel and make us in the best position possible for May! New to the Crown will be the Terrace @ The Crown Hotel Bawtry with alfresco dining and drinking and will be open all day from breakfast, with live music Friday evening and Sunday afternoons. The façade of the hotel has been rendered and painted with new signage. The main hotel restaurant has also a new addition of a Robata Grill, and the restaurant has been rebranded as The Robata Grill Restaurant @ The Crown Hotel Bawtry. We are thrilled to be opening one of the first in the region right in here in Bawtry and the grill makes food taste totally delicious! To add to the equation, we have also decided to open the Café Express @ The Crown Hotel Bawtry also and will offer a takeaway service with Yorkshire pudding wraps, sandwiches, salad bar, ice cream and waffles – a great place for work breakfast and lunches, plus a great destination to bring the family at the weekend for a treat. We will even be serving Doggy Ice cream!”
The hotel is proud to have retained most of the staff during the pandemic and has also been on a recruitment drive for reopening due to the new food and beverage outlets. They are proud to announce the appointment of Daisy Astell to the team as their new Operations Manager, to oversee the day to day running of the food and beverage operations. Daisy, from Doncaster has years of experience in the food and beverage industry, and the local market. Daisy is also studying at Open University for a BA Honours in Business Management. Daisy commented “I am thrilled to be joining the team at the Crown Hotel. I absolutely love meeting new people and enjoy helping guests have a great experience, whether they are out for a Friday night after work drink, lunch with the girls or a celebration. The new restaurant and Terrace at the Crown are going to be amazing in Bawtry and oversee its operation is an absolute privilege! Please call in and say hi!”
Katey Dent Sales Director added “We just knew that Daisy would fit into the team and she has the most infectious, bubbly personality – guests are going to love her! We cannot wait to be back in May looking after guests and customers so please call in and see what we have been up to. The retailers in Bawtry have worked hard to make it through the past year and we all need to eat, drink and shop locally and support our wonderful town.”
