New Pass-Through Dishwasher and Glasswasher for the Weeping Willow

The Weeping Willow is satisfied with the quality of MEIKO dishwashers and service

A village country pub, closed for almost three years, has re-opened following a stunning refurbishment. Architect Peter Romaniuk took a personal interest in the 16th Century listed building and together with his wife, renowned florist Paula Pryke OBE, they have created a family-friendly venue that is winning great praise for its food.

Key design elements of this dog-friendly pub include the bright and cheerful interior design with emphasis on comfy furniture, a bar designed to offer ale at one end and Champagne at the other and a fully open-view kitchen with chef’s table.
For private dining, there is candle-lit, pink themed Raspberry Room, while the main dining room sits in an extension overlooking the garden and seats up to 60.

Situated in Barrow, not far from Bury St Edmunds and close to the A14, local celebrity chef Nick Claxton-Webb is Head Chef. 

Design and installation of the foodservice facilities was carried out by Reg Dawson of Dawson Design Projects. Reg Dawson specified a MEIKO FV40.2 G-GiO glasswasher for the bar and a pass-through UPster H500, dishwasher in the kitchen, which sits in an enclosed corner, out of customer view. The pass-through dishwasher UPster H500’s hood is designed to vent to the rear, pushing the steam away from the operator.

“No bar should be running without reverse osmosis and MEIKO GiO is the best,” says Reg Dawson.“You pay extra to have MEIKO, but they are good for a reason. They are a company that is easy to work with; their machines produce excellent results, are reliable and there are no call-backs after installation, unlike some other manufacturers I have dealt with.

“MEIKO is an easy buy.”
