When Chef Owner Steve Smith imagined his world class kitchen, he called on us to help create it. Mr Smith’s was born.
Freemasons at Wiswell, where fabulous food is served in an elegant and relaxed rural setting. The inn is located in the ‘chocolate box’ village of Wiswell, near Clitheroe, in the picturesque Ribble Valley.
“Since our transformation and reopening in the summer of 2009, we have created a loyal clientele and a genuine home-from-home atmosphere. Flag stone floors, walls in muted heritage colours, antique rugs and furniture, period paintings and prints all unite to create a stylish and comfortable setting. Our bar has an excellent selection of traditional cask conditioned ales from award-winning independent breweries and is complemented by a superb cellar with over 250 wines from around the world.
“While the surroundings and welcome are inviting, the main reason to visit is, of course, our food. We have created a unique and diverse menu that perfectly matches the style and atmosphere, and we will be delighted to welcome you for a true gastronomic experience in a stylish pub setting.
“Now in our 10th year, it is the perfect time for us to evolve and progress again. With the introduction of 8 luxury timeless bedrooms for you to stay over and enjoy everything our great pub has to offer. The introduction of our revolutionary forward thinking Mr Smith’s kitchen table and bench means you can experience at first hand what it takes to cook in one of the country’s best loved pubs.”
Mr Smith’s Project History
In 2011, CHR worked with Chef owner Steven Smith to help create a new kitchen, ripping out the old gas kitchen and replacing with a very energy efficient sustainable solution. The project won the CEDA GRAND PRIX AWARD for most sustainable Kitchen. It also provided Steven and the team at Freemasons a kitchen that would help them deliver a consistent product, and propel Freemasons to become one of the best pubs in the UK.
