CASE STUDIES The Hut goes retro to bring things up to date T


he Hut is a popular restaurant situated in Colwell Bay, on the northwest coast of the Isle of Wight. Since opening five years ago, it has established a reputation for the quality of its menu.


The Hut recently completed a major refurbishment to improve both the dining area and provide an upgrade to the kitchen. Owner George Adams brought in catering design firm Little Duffy to oversee the project, and he was quite clear about the high standard he expected. With that in mind, choosing the refrigeration equipment was simple. Mr Adams said: “We’ve used Precision in the past, and knowing how reliable they are, there was absolutely no doubt in my mind that we should continue to use them.” Andy Norfolk of Little Duffy worked closely with Kandie Harrison of Precision to select and agree on the equipment required, which would include a number of bespoke and customised units. Precision equipment plays a key role in The Hut’s kitchen, with a selection of cabinets, counters and underbroilers. Separate MPT601 cabinets are used for storing meat and fish,


and a selection of counters from the MCU line provide staff with easy access to regularly used ingredients. These units can be fitted with doors or drawers depending on requirements, and The Hut has both versions.


Mr Adams commented: “We don’t have massive amounts of space for our kitchen, but Little Duffy had lots of great ideas to help us make the most of it. I was particularly impressed with Precision’s wall-mounted cabinets.”


Precision’s HWU wall-mounted cabinets are available in one, two and three door variants, and allow enormous flexibility when designing kitchens with limited space.


It’s not just behind the scenes that Precision equipment is used. The front-of-house bar uses Precision’s eye-catching Retro Refrigeration cabinets. Inspired by the 1950s, the large handles and heavy-duty hinges create a strong visual impression, while the vintage look conceals the same advanced technology as the rest of Precision’s equipment.


Mr Adams explained: “When I saw the Retro Refrigeration cabinets, I knew they would be


perfect for us. They match our style exactly!” Indeed, they can match any style very closely, as Precision can paint them to match any RAL number supplied by the customer. Mr Adams added:“We get a lot of compliments about the fridges from our customers, asking where they can get them. Everybody loves them!” Other customisation options include glass doors, which can be either plain or ribbed to accentuate the retro aesthetic.


The Hut’s front-of-house equipment also includes three of Precision’s GFS600 glass frosters which, like the Retro cabinets, have been painted to match the rest of the decor.


“On a hot summer’s day, nothing beats an ice cold glass of drink; the glass frosters are tremendous. We’ve had plenty of great feedback from our customers about that, too!” While the equipment’s looks are important, just as important for Mr Adams is energy efficiency. He concluded: “Obviously keeping our running costs as low as possible is important to us. After all the refrigeration will be running 24/7, so every little bit helps.”
