River Cottage Kitchen & Deli

Hatfield House

We were delighted to have the opportunity to work with River Cottage and Levy Restaurants UK to add another restaurant and deli to the already award-winning River Cottage portfolio. The latest development is at the heart of the historic Hatfield House in Hertfordshire. Benchmark carefully reflected the River Cottage ethos; being environmentally conscious and ensuring maximum sustainability throughout every part of the buildings transformation and design process. Re-using timber table tops, cut down, to make cladding for the new counters, adapting existing fixtures such as metal and glass shelving to suit the new scheme. Where possible, all existing materials where re-used in the new scheme. The stand-alone building provides two options for visitors, a deli and a restaurant. The scheme also features an exterior restaurant seating area with branded planters and umbrellas.
