  • "Today sees the first use of the kitchen Allsop & Pitts have fitted into our new community centre with the demonstration of the Rational Oven"

    Kingsbury Episcopi Community Centre
    "Today see's the first use of the kitchen Allsop and Pitts have fitted into our new community centre with the demonstration of the Rational Oven. I thought before this happens I would like to send my thanks to those involved at Allsop and Pitts for making everything so easy for someone who has had no idea of what was involved in planning an industrial kitchen. Special thanks has to go to Lorraine, right from the start of this process she has been brilliant. From the first time I met Lorraine on site with just the floor poured last year she has held my metaphorical hand all the way through the design, installation through to hand over. Her attention to detail and communication, (my regular Monday morning call from Lorraine to make sure I had done what I need to), is amazing even though at times it seemed like things were getting difficult due to circumstances beyond her control (mainly the builders) she kept the link between us and the builders and kept the project moving forward on time. Even when I had forgotten things like, the splash back on the cooking line, Lorraine was on the end of the phone to make it happen. Everyone who has seen the kitchen has commented on how well the space has been used to get as much equipment as we have in the room and how good it looks. I would definitely recommend Allsop and Pitts to anyone wishing to install a stress free industrial kitchen. Please pass my thanks on to all involved in this project". Kevin Cox,

  • "We now have a beautifully designed kitchen"

    Dawn Rowland – Sheppy’s Cider

    I have worked with Allsop & Pitts for many years but have never had the opportunity to use the kitchen design and install service they provide, until recently whilst developing Sheppy’s House of Cider & Fine foods. I have been working very closely with Lorraine Christie who planned the initial design. Our site definitely had limitations, but because of Lorraine’s commitment and attention to detail, it was always possible to overcome them.

    I would like to personally thank Lorraine and everyone who worked with me to produce not only the catering kitchen but many other aspects of the development, including equipment for the bar and café areas.

  • "Delivered on time, on budget and has exceeded our expectations"

  • "They were clearly the most professional supplier!"

    Kings College – Taunton
    "After a detailed tender process Allsop & Pitts Group were chosen, why? They were clearly the most professional supplier in the process. From initial contact I knew that I was discussing our needs with a company who care about the end product. I found both the sales and design teams easy to work with and greatly appreciated their input in satisfying our overall requirements (which were a little fluid). The project was delivered to price and time with the only delays being caused by our own necessary supply works. Throughout the whole process Allsop & Pitts Group were patient and helpful. I am happy to recommend the company as an excellent supplier. We now have a superb facility for our pupils and one that I would be happy to show any interested parties so thank you to the whole team".

    Alan Prosser - Director of Operations.

    Lockleaze Sports Centre
    "I would just like to mention how impressed I have been with Alsop & Pitt regarding the kitchen installation  for our Lockleaze pavilion project.  You have always been helpful and practical regarding our ever changing programme due to the number of issues we had on site. As a hole the installation went very well and client is very happy with the end product. Thank you again for all your help and patience."
