A hotel in Devon has been upgraded with a posh new restaurant as part of a £3m makeover at the property, with bosses saying the eatery will rival anything else in the area.
The Copthorne Hotel in Plymouth has opened the 50 Degrees North Brasserie and Bar as part of a wider four-year renovation programme spearheaded by owners Millennium Hotels and Resorts.
Now the hotel’s general manager has told The Plymouth Herald that the new eatery will ‘match anything in the city’ as it bids for a popularity status that would rival the likes of Marco Pierre White’s Steakhouse which is situated just down the road.
The 50 Degrees North Brasserie and Bar has been completed refigured and a new head chef brought in, with Matt Carder now charged with conjuring up new menus for the newly-designed all-day dining space.
“We don’t want it to be known as a hotel restaurant,” said Trevor Vels, general manager at the Copthorne, told The Plymouth Herald.
“It’s a brasserie and bar for the people of Plymouth.”
The four-year £3m renovation project began in November 2017 to upgrade the hotel’s public areas including the bar, restaurant and reception area.
