Talking Food with Chris Davies

 

What do you find most satisfying about your work?
When customers are appreciative of the little things, the things that aren’t necessarily exciting but have taken a great deal of thought and hard work to achieve. I also love nothing more than a restaurant full of happy people with empty plates.

Exciting things happening in our garden!

It was with a sigh of relief that I welcomed the arrival of February. Even though temperatures can be lower than in January it’s just the fact that the garden seems to start to stir itself from its winter slumber.

Huge overseas event provides Lindeth Howe with a recipe for success

What do you get if you combine one Lake District hotel, 18,000 scones and a staggering one million Japanese people? According to the team from Lindeth Howe - who have just flown back to the UK after one of the world’s largest business events – it’s a recipe for success.
 
The hotel has been rubbing shoulders with globally renowned brands including Buckingham Palace, Barbour and the East India Tea Company at the Hankyu British Fair, which has been taking place in the Japanese cities of Fukuoka and Osaka.
 
One member of staff, Lorna Snowden, found herself the unexpected star of the show as her picture was used to promote the event on a 20 metre high video screen and the front cover of brochures given out to the one million plus visitors over the three week event.  She even featured on an advertising billboard in the centre of Tokyo.
 
Meanwhile, the team’s freshly made cream teams attracted massive queues, with a record-breaking18,000 freshly baked scones providing an authentic Lake District taste for people visiting the hotel’s specially created ‘tea room’.
 
Lindeth Howe was one of only 25 British firms invited to take part in the annual Hankyu British Fair, which gives Japanese people the chance to sample British culture and lifestyle. For the hotel, it was an opportunity to strengthen the Lake District’s reputation as a holiday destination and encourage international bookings for 2019 and beyond.
 
Digital co-ordinator, Lorna Snowden, says, “It was amazing to be part of this unique experience and on a practical level, to create some face-to-face conversations with potential visitors. The Lake District has huge resonance with Japanese people and the hotel’s Beatrix Potter links are really important to them. One woman had actually travelled several hours from Tokyo to be there, although the most surreal moment was when I was asked to sign someone’s handbag after they’d seen my face as part of the event’s publicity!”
 
Lindeth Howe’s mini tearoom came under the watchful eye of Head Chef Chris Davies. He says, “We felt a real sense of responsibility to represent not just the hotel, but also the wider Lake District and the North of England. The recreation of the hotel’s interior with the same décor and colour scheme was particularly impressive and helped give this vital overseas market a real-life insight into what the Lakes has to offer. Japan provides a substantial chunk of our overseas business and the fair was a fantastic way to keep up that momentum and build relationships for the future.”

The Kyokusen Swing Seat in the Garden

In 2014 Sir Norman Stoller, one of the owners of Lindeth Howe, visited us at Chelsea Flower Show, where we were exhibiting.  The Kyokusen he saw on our stand featured the Heart Back, a new design for us and nominated as a finalist in Chelsea Product of the Year for 2014. He decided that our Kyokusen  Garden Swing Seat would be ideal for his guests to sit and enjoy the fantastic views.  So some weeks later the bespoke swing seat was delivered and has been regularly used and enjoyed by the guests.
