Black and White Hospitality To Open Two New Venues In Felixstowe

Black and White Hospitality has announced it is to open two brand-new venues in Felixstowe.

Both will be located at what is currently The Brook Hotel on Orwell Road and will include a Marco Pierre White Steakhouse Bar & Grill and a pub-based venue called The Queen’s Head which will fall under the Marco Pierre White Ale House brand and will be the first of its kind in the country!

Comprising an investment of over £750,000, the work will transform what is currently a Best Western branded hotel into a boutique-style hotel called Hotel Coco. Generating over 20 jobs for the local area, once complete, the new hotel, restaurant and pub are expected to start welcoming guests by early summer.

The new Steakhouse Bar & Grill will replace what was the hotel’s restaurant and follows a deal between owners the Govindasamy family and Black and White Hospitality, which is the franchising arm of Marco Pierre White Restaurants.

Meanwhile the new pub will appeal to locals and visitors who want to enjoy quality food and drink, but in a more casual setting than a formal restaurant.

With a traditional, homely feel, it will serve simple, classic food from Pierre White’s various restaurant menus such as pies, fish and chips and butcher’s steaks - perfect pub grub.

Nick Taplin, Chairman and CEO of Black and White Hospitality added: “We’re naturally delighted to announce the news of more openings especially at such a challenging time in our industry.  The owner sees the true benefit of the Marco Pierre White brand and an expert F&B team to support.

“This is fantastic news for Felixstowe. The Steakhouse is the perfect fit for the hotel’s restaurant space, not only in terms of the location but for those who will dine in it including residents of the hotel and guests who just want a good meal out.

“The Great British pub is more than just a place to drink beer. The best become hubs of their community or places where locals go out to eat. The Marco Pierre White Ale House will offer quality food in a more casual atmosphere and we’re delighted to have teamed up with Muralee and to be opening in this fantastic location.”

Muralee Govindasamy, owner of the hotel since 2002 said: “We’re incredibly excited about the plans for the hotel and restaurant. The investment will elevate the venue considerably and we’re absolutely delighted to have someone of Marco’s calibre open one of his restaurants in Felixstowe.

“This is great news for the town and is also fantastic news for the whole area.

“Alongside the new restaurant, the private dining areas and courtyard are being completely transformed to offer a superb dining experience within the hotel for both residents and non-residents alike.

“In addition, to be the first location in the whole of the UK to open the new pub concept is a massive privilege and we can’t wait to start pulling pints and serving classic pub food to travellers and locals alike.“
