A PUB looking to expand and earn the crown of ‘best watering hole’ has installed a new piece of equipment.
With a growing clientele from across Ashby, and guests staying overnight in its three-ensuite rooms, the Railway Tavern, in Tamworth Road, has become one of the favourite stops for drinkers in the town.
Now, in a bid to boost its offering, licensee Duncan Merrill called in Burton-based Mace to design and install a new cooling system for its cellars
The initial site survey identified the advantages of installing a new cooler, allowing the pub to expand its ranges of beers and guest ales and keep them in tip-top condition.
The Mace team, led by Jason Cooper from Mace’s Burton offices, took into account the particular requirements, namely accurate cellar temperature control in changing ambient conditions, to specify a J&E Hall 4.0kW cellar cooler.
“The Mace team were insistent that my cooling system runs on R410a refrigerant which is highly energy-efficient,” said Mr Merrill.
“I was comfortable with that refrigerant solution, as the unit can operate down to 4°C which would be perfect in my cellar. The addition of a brewery specified evaporator coil gave me added confidence in storing my beer for all the discerning drinkers who visit the Railway.”
Mr Cooper said: “With new legislation requiring higher energy-efficient refrigeration and cooling systems to be installed, and carbon-depleting refrigerant gases to be replaced, fitting a completely new cooler package ticked all the boxes.
“The Mace solution offers decommissioning, removal and safe disposal of the replaced equipment, plus a 12-month system guarantee from the date of completion,” added Mr Cooper.
