The Church Inn gastropub in Birmingham is now using the Tillypad XL hospitality management system.
The Church Inn has been in Birmingham for over 100 years. The new owners of the company, successful restaurant groups Soul Food Project and Everard, decided to revitalize the venue. They took the idea of a classic British pub as a basis and added the glamorous feel of the French Quarter in New Orleans. As a result, they have created a distinctive, classy, and welcoming place where love of good food and good music are combined. The Church Inn interior design comprises stained glass windows, a magnificent fireplace, and a classic bar counter. The owners have also creatively adapted the roof of the building into a summer terrace with a small garden.
The management entrusted the automation of the restaurant to the Tillypad company. The project was developed taking into account the specifics of the English restaurant business. For example, the cash drawer is connected directly to the POS terminal, without printers or fiscal registers. This allows the reduction of expenditure on equipment and makes it possible to work with personal bar guest tabs. Personalized reports and an automatic mailout of Z reports to the manager and the owner of the pub at the end of the shift have become a welcome addition to the traditional features of the POS system. The leasing option allowed the owners to distribute investments conveniently right from the start of their Tillypad XL project.
The Church Inn offers you excellent cuisine, a variety of cocktails and alcoholic drinks, and, last but not least, quick and attentive service. Not surprisingly, this venue is becoming more and more popular. Within less than two weeks after the pub was opened, the owners purchased an additional Tillypad XL terminal because the number of guests had exceeded all expectations.
Carl Finn, Manager of The Church Inn: "The Tillypad XL hospitality management system has been a one-step solution for all management and accounting issues in our bar. Moreover, it is extremely easy to use because Tillypad XL is sensitive to all our wishes, from exact seating layouts to customized reports needed to analyse the operation of the venture."
