Our Building Conversion Diary
At last, building works have been completed, our new facilities are up and running. Although we have introduced changes we very much hope that everyone who visited us this weekend liked and enjoyed our new Ramblers’ Rest. With both Open Range fires blazing away, one in the original Tea Room and the other in the extended Restaurant it was difficult to choose which room to dine in, and we felt happy that the added space made things more comfortable for a very busy weekend. It was great to see all our familiar faces back again be it on foot, cycling or by car.
We had a successful evening with the Restaurant, a private family birthday celebration, and had our first B&B booking on Sunday evening, a welcome stop for two people doing the Minster Way long distance walk.
Angela, Jeremy, Zoe and Martyn look forward to welcoming you to The Tea Room and Licensed Restaurant and perhaps you may consider a stay over in our luxury accommodation?
For further details please feel free to contact Angela 01759/305220 for restaurant and tea room information or Zoe 01759/303292 to find out more about our 4 B&B rooms.
The weather at Millington has been absolutely fantastic this weekend, great cycling and walking weather. Its amazing how the sun brings everyone out. Our delicious Brymor icecream has definitely been one of the top sellers, surprise, surprise, was panicking I would run out.
The Tea room will be open over this bank holiday, so we look forward to welcoming you, be it cycling, walking or driving. Please feel free to enquire about walks or rides if you are unfamiliar to the area.
From 4th June The Tea Room will be open from 11am Fridays and Mondays in addition to the usual weekends, and don’t forget our Private Dining Room for those get togethers with family, friends or work colleagues, where a minimum of 10 people guarantee you have the room to yourselves for the evening. Open Mon- Sat evenings.
Building work is progressing really well. Plumbing and electrical works are all going in and the last bit of roofing is being done this week. The plasterer is due to start this week also.
We are just getting an old range from the farm installed in the restaurant area, which we are chuffed to bits with, it was removed a week or so ago from the farm. Julian has renovated and even rebuilt the oven so that it will actually work. I havn’t cancelled my order for my oven in the new kitchen yet though!
We are confident that our new restaurant area and accomodation should be up and running for October. Any enquiries please feel free to contact Angela 01759/305220 and we will keep you updated.
Everything is going to plan with our extension at Millington, East Yorkshire.
Pauls team have been grafting really hard throughout all this bitter Winter weather. Most of the internal walls have been knocked down where necessary and rebuilt so we are able to see the layout of everything now. I have a wonderful kitchen space that I cannot wait to fill with fantastic equipment. Those of you who have seen the existing Tea Room kitchen will appreciate my excitement. Outside window and door openings are almost all in place giving fantastic views over the Yorkshire Wolds.
We had fun removing The Old Mill from what will be the new entrance area. It was originally built in situ so had to be taken to bits similarily,we found the man for the job! Quite sad really, alot of memories of my brother, Martyn, not too long ago and Dad before him, milling corn for our livestock.
Martyn has spent some time over the weekend sanding the beams in one of the bedrooms. Hardwork and very time consuming, but it will be well worth it!!
Martyn , Zoe, Angela, Jeremy and family would like to wish everyone a happy New Year. December has been a successful month with lots of Christmas party bookings – Thank you.
The snow did not cause too many problems, good walking but not ideal for cyclists (although there were two dare devils who stopped off for lunch when snow was still thick on the ground!!)
A price to pay for our wonderful Wolds location.
Zoe & girls found time to chill out (literally) in constructing this wonderful snow man.
Talking construction the snow has had some effect on building but things are still taking shape. Paul, our builder is looking forward to some drier snow free weather.
We would like all our customers to know that we are passionate that we retain the original character, charm and intimacy of The Ramblers’ Rest but with added comfort and more spacious dining.
We would welcome any constructive comments you may have regarding our plans, especially feedback on whether you would use the accommodation, be it for yourselves or friends or family that may be visiting you.
We very much look forward to you being able to enjoy our facilities in the future!!!
