Wilmslow residents can enjoy restaurant quality food from the comfort of their homes, thanks to a new offering by Restaurant One Eighty at The Best Western Plus Pinewood Hotel.

The takeaway service, 180@home, is available from Friday 10th July following the hotel and restaurant re-opening after closing its doors in March due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The new offering allows local residents to order the meals online, collect within 24 hours, then finish them at home. An impressive range of creative dishes are available, including gin and tonic cured salmon, sticky feather blade of beef and smoked honey glazed confit duck leg. The menu will also feature weekly specials, such as a Sunday roast and hot dishes on a Friday and Saturday.

The launch coincides with the return of the award-winning restaurant’s head chef, Colin Starkey, after an 18-month absence. Colin has personally designed each of the meals to ensure they require less than 15 minutes’ preparation before serving. He also sources ingredients from local suppliers wherever possible.

Colin has more than 25 years of experience under his belt, including time at Northcote Manor, Mottram Hall Hotel and as head chef at Shrigley Hall in Cheshire, most recently leading the kitchen team at the Alderley Edge Hotel. His passion for cooking started at an early age when spending time in the kitchen with his mother and grandmother, later preparing meals for his younger brothers while his mother worked shifts. After taking part in a cookery competition at Southport’s Floral Hall, Colin realised he could turn his passion into a career.

Colin said: “Covid-19 has certainly presented challenges for any hospitality business, but I see this time as an opportunity to reset the dial and adapt creatively. No two days are ever the same in a kitchen, and as a chef who thrives on change, I feel it is my job to lead from the front and try new things. I hope the new 180@home service will excite customers old and new, and maybe even help inspire a few new young chefs along the way.” 

Managing director Tim Rumney added: “It is great to have Colin back as head chef and we are excited about his new and exciting menus. We wanted to have his food available, not only in our beautiful One Eighty Restaurant and gardens but also as a takeaway option, which is why we have created 180@home. 

“This will give our customers the best of both worlds – restaurant-quality food but in the comfort of your own home. Of course, if you want to come to the restaurant, our friendly team are here to welcome you back into a safe, clean and hygienic environment. Alternatively, relax at home in your leisurewear and enjoy fabulous food without having to get dressed up”.
