The cafe/bar at the Mount Batten Watersports and Activities Centre has been given a fresh new look and a new name as summer approaches - The Lookout was the most popular name chosen from a range of options from a recent Facebook poll.
Sarah Davis, Hospitality and Events Manager said:
"We wanted to give our food and drink offering its own identity so that customers know that they can visit us even if they're not participating in one of our many land and water activities or are a member here at the Centre.
The Lookout was a name suggestion by a member of staff and was then was chosen as the most popular name when we asked people to choose their preferred choice from a short-list on Facebook. We hope our current, and future customers, enjoy the relaxed atmosphere and the 'contemporary meets beach' style decor.
The new name certainly does justice to the views and, whilst we may be biased we think they are some of the best in Plymouth!."
Along with a new name and new look, the Centre also welcomes a new chef to the team. Gavin Hobbs has over twenty years’ experience in many different kitchens and companies, from corporate to privately owned hotels.
Gavin says "The menu we have developed for The Lookout has three key ingredients - it's fresh, tasty and delivered fast, but without compromise. Alongside our full menu we're also launching our 'grab and go' section which will include daily baked on-site cakes, scones, wraps, sandwiches and salads for customers that really don't have the time to sit and enjoy the views."
Gavin, Sarah and the rest of the team are keen to support a growing number of local produce suppliers and currently work with Tamar Fresh Ltd., Moby Nicks, St Austell Brewery and Allisons Butchers in Elburton.
The Mount Batten Watersports and Activities Centre has recently become one of Plymouth's Plastic Free Pioneers and are working hard to reduce, and remove, single use plastic at The Lookout.
