Nuttalls deliver brand new Grain Store Café & Bar at Gatwick Airport

Grain Store restaurant at Gatwick Airport by Interior fit-out specialist The Alan Nuttall Partnership

Gatwick Airport is now home to the first offshoot Chef Bruno and The Zetter Group’s award-winning Grain Store Café and Bar outside of King’s Cross.

Located in the South Terminal, the new dining offering features a completely new family-friendly all-day menu created with airport travellers in mind. It showcases fresh and organic vegetables as well as fish and meat sources from British producers.

Working in partnership with Russell Sage Studios and Catering Designer, Graham Barrie, Nuttalls acted as Principal Contractor for the project to transform a bare shell unit into a full service restaurant.

Overseeing the planning, consultancy, build and installation, Nuttalls provided a one-stop interior approach with scope of works including design and development, bespoke joinery and metalwork.

Features also included a white tiled takeaway counter, feature bar and open kitchen in the restaurant. A five metre long glass wall, which offers a window into the kitchen was also installed and is the first of its kind in any airport worldwide.

Nuttalls were picked to deliver the new project due to its wealth of experience and expertise within airport development, having successfully completed over 100 airport-based projects to date. This includes work at Heathrow (most notably, the award-winning Fortnum and Mason Bar), Birmingham International, Manchester, Gatwick, Stansted and East Midlands amongst others.

Hayley Butts from Airport Retail Enterprises commented..

The service and quality received from Nuttall’s were second to none. The entire team was responsive, friendly and professional and worked tirelessly to deliver a first class result. Our project was unusually challenging, but Nuttall’s handled every obstacle with a positive and pragmatic approach to ensure that the right solution was found as quickly as possible. We would not hesitate to use Nuttall’s again.
