Case study – Jason Atherton's Pollen Street Social Club cleans up thanks to Winterhalter

Jason Atherton's vision for the Pollen Street Social Club is to provide fine dining in a relaxed, fun atmosphere and, as with any great restaurant, the drinks service is a critical part of the success.

More than 100 customers at each service makes for several hundred dirty glasses, all of which need cleaning perfectly.

General manager Michael West said: "We wanted great results, and we wanted to avoid polishing glasses."

The Winterhalter UC glasswasher and reverse osmosis system is a "mini" system measuring just 469mm (h) x 142mm (w) x 515mm (d). It is easily small enough to fit beside or even on top of a warewasher, yet it can process up to 90 litres of water per hour, removing 98% of particles.

Jayson Ball, of Salix, who installed the system, said: "Pollen Street is really tight on space and needed a compact solution."

Atherton agreed: "Our new Winterhalter system is a revelation. The glasses go in soiled and, after a short cycle, come out sparkling. It gives my sommeliers the chance to spend more time with the customers."
