Family restaurant to transform into boutique hotel

Family restaurant to transform into boutique hotel

Work has commenced on a new six-bedroom boutique hotel as part of a redevelopment of the Peppered Pig restaurant and Pig’s Pantry deli in East Cowick.

After opening the restaurant in 2009 and later the deli in 2014, owners Sam and Glen Mitchell are now embarking on their latest hospitality venture, which will offer a modern twist on the traditional English Inn.

The bar area is set to triple in size, to offer informal evening dining alongside the restaurant, and it is hoped a new function room for up to 120 people will be open from December.

Glen said: “It has been five years of hard work to get to this stage and we’re really thrilled.

“The business has been going from strength to strength and we’re extremely busy now, and feel we’re ready to add this new exciting element to the business.

“That said, we’ll be staying true to our ethos; everything about the new development from the building materials and the bed linen to the food and drink, will be from Yorkshire. “
