THE STRAND DINING ROOMS
CLIENT: The Strand Dining Rooms
PROJECT LOCATION: London
Located on Trafalgar Square in the very heart of London, The Strand Dining Rooms Restaurant and Cocktail Bar offer all day dining in a wonderfully relaxed and comfortable environment.
Vision provided the catering facilities at The Strand Dining Rooms which would provide a high quality food and beverage offer to a London based audience within an exclusive area. The extent of Vision's work included the kitchen, patisserie kitchen and bar.

The brief given indicated that the kitchen had to provide high quality food in a very busy and demanding environment for a high cover rate.
The bar and patisserie kitchen needed to compliment the interior design of the restaurant which is based on the interior of a traditional Pullman Coach and offers a sophisticated, classic British style. The bar and patisserie kitchen therefore had to develop this theme further and the customer facing patisseries kitchen had to have an aesthetic wow factor in order to provide the right ambience for the main restaurant. In terms of the main kitchen, although out of site, it had to be able to provide high quality cuisine from the extensive menu and therefore the kitchen equipment had to be of the highest quality and durability in order to meet the high cover rate.
Vision worked hard to refine the design and flow of the kitchen to a very tight deadline both in terms of turnaround on design and turnaround of project timeline from the initial start on site to installation. The finished project was very aesthetically appealing and complimented the interior design of the restaurant perfectly.
I asked Vision to supply and fit my new kitchen, bar and patisserie kitchen at The Strand Dining Rooms. Vision took the time to understand exactly what I wanted to achieve and have complimented this with practical and imaginative ideas.
Our new kitchen now has the capability to produce high quality food within our very busy and demanding environment. Our customer facing patisserie kitchen and bar are not only extremely aesthetically pleasing and perfectly compliment the interior design of the restaurant but they also allow the team in the restaurant to work efficiently, cleanly and professionally.
The Strand Dining Rooms was a very large project in an iconic part of London. There were always bound to be last minute client changes on my part due to the size of the project. The calm and constructive manner in which Vision worked meant that problem solving could be done efficiently and completely stress free.
Vision are a very helpful and professional company to work with and I am extremely pleased with the work they have done, so much so that I am now in discussions about future projects as I know that I can rely on Vision to produce another exceptional kitchen.
