Kudos CafésThe Crown Group’s Kudos Cafés business has won a £12m contract with Warwick District Council to deliver food and venue management services at four venues in Royal Leamington Spa.

The six-year deal sees Kudos provide a new food offer at the Restaurant in the Park (pictured), renamed Jephson’s Brasserie, and the Aviary Cafe, both located in Jephson Gardens.

Kudos will also operate the nearby Royal Pump Rooms and it has introduced a modern “pod” food outlet at the local Newbold Leisure Centre.

As part of the contract, which has a possible six-year extension option, Kudos Cafés has invested in new kitchen equipment to enable its team to freshly prepare food on site, using local produce where possible.

Dale Wild, managing director, Kudos Cafés, said: “The four venues are all unique in their own right, and we have worked hard to develop menus that suit their flexible nature.

“This contract win is testament to the great work that has gone into developing our offer and I am very proud to add this prestigious client to our portfolio.”

Jephson’s Brasserie and the Royal Pump Rooms will be available for exclusive hire for events capable of hosting up to 200 people.

Often dismissed as ‘greasy spoons’, Classic Cafes are actually little gems of British vernacular high street design. This site celebrates their ambience and architecture with over 130 vintage London Formica caffs (and many others around Britain) reviewed, revealed & reappraised. But as Time Out Restaurant Guide noted, the site isn’t simply: “a set of recommendations… it’s a whole aesthetic!”; an immersive re-exploration of a cultural phenomenon that is fading all too fast. The Classic Cafes Book — now long out of print — has been acclaimed by the Royal Institute of British Architects as ‘sumptuous… beautiful… breathtaking… deeply evocative…, and praised by the Twentieth Century Society as a work of ‘genius… passionate… elegiac… .
