The FCC will undertake a total refurbishment of its kitchen during August and September which will see all major fittings ripped out and replaced with modern equipment. This upgrade is long overdue as for many years Chef George and his team have done a heroic job maintaining our high quality food offering despite operating in an outdated work environment. As a result, from Monday 1 August until late September all cooking will take place in a very small temporary kitchen located behind the serving area in Bert’s Bar. During this period we will offer a simplified menu, which we hope will still satisfy members’ basic desire for sustenance, even if choice is greatly reduced.
Throughout the renovation period it will be necessary to close Bert’s which will be used as a temporary food preparation and storage area. During this time it is our intention to offer a number of live music events in the Main Dining Room, so do watch this space for details. From Saturday 23 July, the pool table section of Bert’s will close while the rest of the bar and restaurant area will run normally until Saturday 30 July and close thereafter. Rest assured Bert’s will be back in business in early October after the walls and flooring receive a well-deserved touch up. During the kitchen renovation the work room will operate as normal, with a passageway kept free to give access for members.
Please see an attached article from the July/ August edition of the Correspondent which gives
more details of the renovation. Also attached is a copy of the simplified menu which we plan to offer throughout August and September.
We would appreciate your patience during this time and look to welcoming you back to an enhanced FCC.
