We had a very enjoyable evening at The Ramblers’ Rest when George Hamilton and Dennis Jones from Growing Routes brought their team for their belated Christmas get together and to present me with a Plaque from Growing Routes, illustrating their support of The Ramblers’ Rest in the development of The Tea Room and Restaurant and Quality B&B Accommodation.
‘The Ramblers’ Rest has been very fortunate to have had a great deal of support from Growing Routes throughout its development, from the very early stages of planning up to present day.We were introduced to George first, during the early days of our ‘dreams’ to expand, and he then went on to help, advise and prepare us for our Grant Application to Yorkshire Forward. (Growing Routes was founded by the Yorkshire Agricultural Society, with the support of Yorkshire Forward to help new and existing farm/rural businesses.)
Successful with our application and building works well on the way, Growing Routes continued their support in the ‘form’ of Dennis Jones by offering us a Mentor to help with areas of our business that we felt would benefit from this service. Over the last year we have been extremely lucky to have had a fantastic mentor, Tracey Baty of three60 marketing and pr, based in Shiptonthorpe, who has helped us in so many ways, offering knowledge and expertise and always with bags of encouragement and enthusiasm for what we want to achieve from The Ramblers’ Rest.
I would like to say a very big thankyou to George, Dennis and Tracey and wish Growing Routes continued success in providing the time to offer invaluable advice, support and ecouragement to small rural businesses.
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.
