Cold Store Group celebrates another roaring success with The Lion Inn

The Lion Inn case studyCold Store Group were delighted to be commissioned by Annie Fox-Hamilton, owner of an award-winning Cotswold Inn, to create a custom-made cold room to provide the Inn with more chiller and freezer space in time for its busy barbecue season.

Custom-made cold room

The Lion is a 15th Century coaching Inn in the picturesque Cotswold town of Winchcombe. It boasts an award-winning restaurant and bar, along with seven luxury bedrooms, and was voted one of the Best Inns with Rooms in England and Wales (2013-2014) by Alistair Sawday’s Special Places to Stay Guide.

In the spring of 2014, Cold Store Group was approached by Annie for a custom-made walk-in cold room. With a tight time-scale for installation, Cold Store Group ordered the 4.2m x 3.6m Zanotti dual compartment chill/freezer and erected it to meet Annie’s four-week time-scale. Steve Prior, Cold Store Group Director, oversaw the 2-man installation team, “the unique interlocking bespoke panel system was chosen for this tailor-made chiller and freezer unit. Installation was carried out by our professional in-house team with no disruption to The Lion Inn’s busy trade.”

Annie, who also went on to order a refrigerated wheelie bin cooler from Cold Store Group, commented, “Our building dates back to the 16th Century and we really do struggle for space. We had been considering the idea of having an outdoor cold-room for some time and chose Cold Store Group for their excellent customer service and price. We were not disappointed – Steve and his team were highly professional and the cold room was built and installed within the day.”
