Nestled on the banks of river Wyre in Lancashire is The Cartford Inn, a stunning 17th century coaching inn that offers 14 boutique, individually styled luxury bedrooms and dining that has been praised by both The Good Food Guide and Michelin.

The inn boasts two dining Lounges; the fire lounge and the popular new river lounge with a dining terrace. Here customers can try locally sourced French and English cuisine or have a bar snack and local ales, including their own ‘giddy kipper’, by an open wood fire in the quiet bar lounge area.

As you’d expect Owners Patrick and Julie Beaume want to offer the best for their customers, keeping up-to-date with the latest kitchen technology while providing a top class service in its dining facilities.

They got in touch with Diane Moden at CKS Catering Ltd to supply their new updated kitchen and as they want to upgrade quickly, while keeping the business open, the supplier proposed that financing with Johnson Reed was the best option. Here’s what Diane had to say about dealing with Johnson Reed:

Patrick and Julie at The Cartford Inn were looking to extend their already growing establishment, over the years they have added bedrooms and a banqueting restaurant, and the next step was to convert the outside barn into a gallery with dining and function facilities.

Once we had finalised the kitchen details with Patrick, we made contact with David at Johnson Reed who took over the finance details, liaising direct with Patrick about what deals were available over different terms.

The benefit of dealing with a company like Johnson Reed is that they take all the stress regarding payment from companies like ourselves, and deal with the client in a totally professional and confidential manner.

We would not hesitate to recommend Johnson Reed to any of our clients for future leasing deals.

Being catering sector specialists, we gave Patrick and Julie a simple deal that offered full tax-deductible advantages along with a fixed payment scheme of £39,000 paid over a three-year period, giving them the opportunity keep their working capital.

It is a privilege to say the kitchen renovations are completed and The Cartford Inn is continuing to offer a world-class quality menu and accommodation in a truly idyllic setting.
