Bertram’s Restaurant wins at the World Luxury Restaurant Awards!

Global acclaim for Burnleys Luxury Brasserie!

Bertram’s Restaurant in Burnley, part of Crow Wood Leisure has received international recognition after being crowned Best Luxury Brasserie at the 2017 World Luxury Restaurant Awards.

The lavish award ceremony took place on the red carpet at the exquisite 5-star JW Marriott Hotel in Hanoi, Vietnam where Bertram’s succeeded in seeing off competition from more than 1000 entrants from spectacular destinations as far afield as the Maldives and the United Arab Emirates. Setting the basis for industry standards worldwide, the World Luxury Restaurant Awards pride themselves on providing true recognition of luxury destinations around the globe.

Crow Wood Leisure Director Andrew Brown, said: “The event was truly fantastic and the level of competition was incredible, so we’re extremely proud to be flying the flag for Burnley and the North West and challenging people’s perceptions”.

“We have been working hard to deliver a genuinely world class experience and in doing so, we’re demonstrating that our area offers quality and sophistication”.

“When we opened Bertram’s & The Woodland Spa four years ago, it represented a big investment and a big risk, but we felt that we had the location, the staff and the experience to make it happen. We feel that confidence has been vindicated as Bertram’s has been recognised nationally and internationally.”

Chef Director Spencer Burge, said “It’s a tremendous achievement to win such an award after 4 years of trading and a true testimony to all the staff who have worked so hard. We pride ourselves on going above and beyond expectations, whilst listening to customer feedback and constantly trying to improve the diners experience. We are so very proud of the reputation gained along the way and would like to thank each and every customer who has visited and supported us over the past 4 years. We realise it is very important not to become complacent and remain committed to keep improving the business and making sure all our customers continue to enjoy Bertram’s Restaurant seven days a week”.

Since the £4.5 million investment in Bertram’s & The Woodland Spa in 2013, Crow Wood has doubled its number of staff to over 200, the business serves 7,000 covers per month and sales of £6.2 million last year.  The expansion of the Spa’s outdoor facilities was officially opened in 2016 following a further £750,000 investment. This has seen the opening of Bertram’s Terrace Bar including a fabulous outdoor fire pit, which is surrounded by comfortable sofas – perfect when relaxing with a cocktail!

The future sees Crow Wood venture into the world of Hotel and Conference facilities. The luxurious facility will have 78 additional rooms including sumptuous suites and inter-connecting rooms for flexibility. The hotel will also have a 300 seat function suite, bar, Italian restaurant and will be licensed to conduct wedding ceremonies. This £12 million investment is due for completion in 2018 and will allow spa guests further options to extend their stay overnight.

Crow Wood is a fitness and leisure concept set in 100 acres of unspoilt woodland in Burnley, Lancashire.  Crow Wood includes gymnasium, leisure pool, racquets and the Soccer Burnley complex. The private members fitness centre was established in 2001 with an investment of £10 million. Crow Wood employs over 200 people.
