Following on from last week`s Blog post Installations in August 2016, it has just continued to be all work and no play for our engineers and technicians!
From Dabbling Ducks to Leaping Hare`s, this is what we have been up to in and around Norfolk, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire.
The Dabbling Duck
2 Touch Screens along with ICR back office, Thermal Printer has been installed and training of all the staff has been carried out
At the Dabbling Duck there are three owners, two of which are local farmers who stepped into save the lovely picturesque pub from re-development in 2006, the third is Mark Dobby who was brought in to manage the pub in 2013.
Mark has excellent experience in award winning pubs and hotels for over ten years, which has made Mark well-qualified to elevate the Dabbling Duck to another level (and he’s certainly achieved this). Mark is joined by his wife Sally, who is herself no stranger to the hospitality world, having previously been a co-owner of a lovely local bistro for around five years.
Their black Labrador Doris is also a regular in the bar! (you really must meet her), Sally is a professional photographer and you may see some of her prints in the rooms and around the Dabbling Duck.
Wherever possible the produce used in the kitchens is locally sourced often from their own land. At the Dabbling Duck it is particularly proud of its game dishes, and according to the season pheasant, partridge, pigeon, woodcock, rabbit and venison are all prepared on site. You can’t run a successful pub without a great team both front of house and “backstage” and they certainly have a fantastic one!
Most of their employees are also local to this beautiful part of Norfolk, which makes them hopefully able to answer all your questions you may have about the area.
Southwold Golf Club
Touch Screen with updated ICR Software installed
This lovely Southwold course is a traditional members golf club, always offering a warm welcome to all of their visitors all year round. Golf has been played at the Southwold golf club for an incredible 130 years, making this one of the oldest Suffolk golf clubs.
The challenging nine hole heathland layout will provide a test for all golfing abilities. Being laid out on free draining soil the course is playable virtually all year round (good news for you keen golfers) with greens that have received much praise, and Southwold golf course is widely regarded as among the best in East Anglia.
The course is located only 5 minutes from the beautiful town of Southwold, but you will find the experience of playing here is only the beginning, with so many sights and things to do on this wonderful part of the Suffolk Heritage Coast.
So if you are extremely keen golfer or a first timer at this much loved sport, Southwold is definitely “One of the finest golf courses in East Anglia”
Come and enjoy a round or a day with us in the friendly relaxed atmosphere that can only be found in a traditional club steeped in history. This clubhouse with its excellent bar and catering facilities is open to all visitors.
The Lord Nelson, Southwold, Suffolk
Cash Register installed, Programmed by ECR
The Nelson as you know it today, was built on the traditional belief that a pub should be a haven, somewhere warm, welcoming and wholesome, a place to unwind in a classless environment, and it certainly is that, set in Southwold it’s just perfect. This is a tradition that they intend to carry forward for as long as the “Nellie” remains in the family.
They offer a wide and varied menu including delicious fresh soups, lovely sandwiches and some hot favourites such as there legendary fish and chips, (a must try for all you fish and chip lovers). All served daily from 12.00 -14.00 & 18.30 – 21.00, but I would always check the website for up to date opening and serving times just in case of any changes.
With the famous Adnams brewery on their doorstep they offer the full range of great beers, and much more, so you really do need to spend time whilst at the Nelson to try them all!
