Owner of Green Park Brasserie Andrew Peters hails the restaurant’s achievements on its 25th birthday
456,250 pints, 963 ambitious Christmas dance moves, 211 live bands, 718 weddings, 629 dropped glasses, 34 golden wedding anniversaries, four 100th birthday parties, 1,270 21st birthday parties, hundreds of wonderful staff, two staff weddings, 291 Somerset farmers and producers, and 255,403 gin and tonics.
That sums up 25 years of business for Green Park Brasserie, which has been flying the flag for Bath’s independent restaurant scene since 1992.
Fantastic food, friendly service and a lively atmosphere are the key elements owner Andrew Peters puts down to the Brasserie’s success. He says: “We’ve always had the mindset of ‘how can we make people happy?’ With fantastic food and live music in our historic setting we really create quite a unique atmosphere.
“We’re fortunate to have the Bath Farmers’ Market on our doorstep. With some of Somerset’s best farmers and producers metres from our kitchen, it’s even easier to work with fresh, local produce which our customers love.”
Over the 25 years Andrew has expanded the business, adding the Bath Function Rooms and most recently Bath Pizza Company to the business’ portfolio.
“Green Park Station is thriving. The landscape of Bath’s footfall is changing as the west side of the city centre developed. We’re proud to be championing independent dining in Bath, when the city has become saturated with chains,” says Andrew.
Bath Function Rooms sits above the Brasserie and caters for weddings, corporate events, parties and private dining. The private events space can hold up to 140 people.
Bath Pizza Company, which opened in March 2016, has developed its reputation for outstanding wood fired pizza in a quirky setting in the former Victorian station.
“The dining out experience has changed hugely in recent years. People are generally planning where they are going based solely on specifically what they want to eat – they know exactly what they want before they’ve left the house rather than going to a restaurant and browsing the menu.
“We’re lucky to have a very loyal customer base and a great team working across the businesses. Reaching the quarter of a century milestone is testament to our staff, musicians and producers and suppliers,” says Andrew.
