The Redhurst Hotel in Busby has undergone its biggest ever refurbishment to date ahead of their eagerly anticipated opening on the 12th May. which is owned by independent hotel group Manorview Hotels

As part of the refurbishment the hotel group has placed great emphasis on their family offering, starting with the new children’s food menu at the new Bird & Bell restaurant. The Bird & Bell will have the same inviting, relaxed ethos that the Redhurst is renowned for, but will offer guests a totally new contemporary menu complete with a total overhaul of their children’s food offering.

To ensure their children’s menu appeals to even the harshest of little critics, the hotel has brought in a panel of discerning Little Foodies to help test drive their new Little Explorers menu.

Junior guests can look forward to creating their own pizza combos, decorating their ice cream sundaes with their favourite toppings and even selecting from a pick and mix brunch menu, which will provide children with the opportunity to select their favourite items ‘picnic’ style to provide a more relaxed and enjoyable dining experience for the whole family.

The panel of six Little Foodies carried out ‘taste tests’ across the entire menu and have given their official stamp of approval for the final menu, which will be reviewed seasonally by the Little Foodies team in collaboration with the hotel’s head chef.

Lesley Smith, General Manager at The Redhurst, said: “It was really important to us that we got the family food offering right in the new Redhurst Hotel. We were not previously known for our childrens’ food options, so we wanted to make sure the new menu was on point – and who better to taste test and give us their honest feedback than children themselves.

Poppy Ure aged 7 from The Little Foodies panel said: “We tried a lot of dishes and tried to think of our favourite things to eat when we are out with our families and friends. We picked the ultimate mac n cheese and even a sweetie topped ice cream sundae. We think other children are going to love it!”

The Redhurst Little Explorers menu will be offered 7 days a week in the Bird & Bell restaurant from 10am to 8pm. Children will also be issued with a Little Explorers passport to be stamped each time they come to the hotel, and they will receive a free brunch meal after they have collected six stamps.
