With all the ceiling stripped out of the conservatory it really is amazing just how bright and airy it looks in there already, and the old glass rood is still in place , all browned and smoked. That is coming out in the very near future and being replaced by a nice new roof, see through and clear, in some wonderful new material that insulates heat both ways, so it wont be "hot in the Summer and cold in the winter" as it was before we put the false ceiling in a couple of years ago.
It really is amazing just how expensive furniture and other room accessories have got in recent years; a simple table and four chairs costs around £600 while the fixed seating for the booths is just astronomical at over £200 per linear foot!
The best news of all is that we are now ion the final rounds of a major new hiring for The Triton, our new Head Chef. We shall be releasing more details soon but I can tell you that his food is superb, he follows our mantra of 'all fresh' ingredients, has run his own award winning restaurant. He has worked at several Michelin starred restaurants, including a long spell with Heston Blumental. He is already hard at work on menus, but we shall be retaining the legendary Triton favourites, including our Steak Pie and fish dishes. Hopefully that has whetted your appetite? More very soon.
