Chef Marco visits restaurant

World-famous chef Marco Pierre White paid a visit to a North Somerset restaurant after it carried out a £100,000 improvement programme.
The Marco Pierre White Steakhouse Bar and Grill, which is situated in the grounds of the DoubleTree by Hilton, Cadbury House hotel in Congresbury, spent the money on improvements to its grounds and scenery.
The work is part of an ongoing project introduced by Marco to soften the landscape of the setting and offer customers an authentic rural experience when they visit.
DoubleTree’s general manager Colin Badcock said: “We now have guinea fowl, Indian runner ducks and tumbling doves on-site, with plans to add more wildlife in the near future.
“We’ve restructured the layout of the extensive land around the hotel and restaurant adding lovely log walls, planters and a vegetable plot.
“We’ve also added a quirky shepherd’s hut, which will eventually be used for something exciting – we’re just not quite sure what yet.”
Mr White visited the site in Frost Hill earlier this month. He said: “The views here are spectacular and the surroundings lend themselves to wildlife such as guinea fowl.
“I think it also creates more of an experience for the visiting customer, especially children, who will be able to feed and interact with the animals.”
