Levy Restaurants revamps the catering at two national museums

Levy Restaurants has revamped the catering spaces at two of its national museum contracts.

The Compass Group brand has redeveloped the food and drink offers at both the National Railway Museum in York and the National Media Museum in Bradford, which are both part of the Science Museum Group.

With a brief to maximise customer experience, drive footfall and increase spends per head, Levy creative director Roy Westwood oversaw a 12 month review of the facilities and worked with SHH Architects on the changes.

Westwood commented: "We understand that it is the museums' guests that we need to satisfy and therefore spend a lot of time and effort in research and development to make sure that we have a winning formula that will appeal to guests."

The National Railway Museum can cater for more than 350 guests at any one time and receives an annual average footfall of 700,000 visitors.

To accommodate them, Levy has developed three food & drink outlets: the Dining Car Restaurant, the Mallard Café and the Courtyard, each designed to incorporate the history of the railway.

In Bradford the new Media Café has extended opening hours in order to service local cinema-goers.
