We are very pleased to announce the arrival of a brand new log burner at Lakeside Kitchen & Bar. The hotly anticipated feature is just another example of our burning ambition to continuously improve Lakeside. But we didn’t install the wood based, heating appliance solely because it works as a literal representation of our ethos – we’re also hoping that it’ll help to keep our cosy venue nice and warm for customers during cold weather!

The burner took two days to put in place and is located in the conservatory, also recently installed, where we expect it to be very warmly received by customers. In combination with the conservatory, the log burner will serve as protection from the elements for visitors, while still offering all the views customers are accustomed to enjoying when they sit outside at Lakeside. It should be particularly popular with the hardy dog walkers who enjoy a constitutional with their furry, four legged friends whatever the weather – even when it’s raining cats and dogs.

With all of our operations at Lakeside we always try to be good to the environment and it won’t be any different with our new heating system. The bio-mass burner will be in operation throughout the year from morning until afternoon – but we won’t be firing it up willy-nilly; only when the temperature drops below 10 degrees Celsius will the log burner flicker in to action.

As well as an eye on efficient usage, we will also be burning ecologically friendly fuel. We’re working with the wonderful Nene Park Trust, who will be providing us with the wood from Ferry Meadows Country Park for the burner. So not only will the wood be locally sourced but it will be renewable too – tree-mendous news, we’re sure you’ll agree.

We really hope you enjoy the new log burner and please let us know if you have any suggestions on other ways we could improve Lakeside.
