A Good, Goodbye
Thirty years in any business is a long stretch, and thirty years running a restaurant seems longer!
Having reached our fourth decade at the end of last week – we opened September 1986 – the time has come to hand over the reins and move on.
So it’s with mixed emotions, to say the least, that we write with news that we’ve sold The Depot to Rick Stein, who we know will look after you well and continue our proud tradition.
The Depot team remains and you are sure to see familiar faces, so fear not, a warm welcome awaits, as ever, and we know that you will be in safe and experienced hands.
It really has been a pleasure to have run The Depot for all this time, with so many memories; particularly of special events, from retirement parties to weddings, christenings, birthdays and the inevitable funeral receptions.
Your feedback over the years has been generous and much appreciated, and reflects so well on our loyal and hard-working team, to whom we are very grateful.
Our thanks to you, and them, for such loyalty, support and encouragement.
We’ll miss you, and them, but safe in the knowledge that hospitality continues down on the river with further opportunities for future enjoyment and fun.
So, here’s to a good, goodbye and good luck from the erstwhile directors,
Gillian, Gavin and Mark.
Over to you Rick…
