Some more small history………A Brief History of Britannia HotelsBritannia Hotels Ltd was founded in 1976 when the
owner bought a 100-bedroom hotel in South Manchester, The Country House Hotel. This is now a 255 bedroom hotel, with a choice of restaurants, hotel bar, Spindles leisure club and extensive onsite parking.
The second purchase in 1981 was a council owned derelict listed building in central Manchester. After spending an entire year developing the unit, it partially opened in May 1982 with 25 bedrooms on the top floor and a nightclub. This once derelict unit is now a famous landmark and meeting place throughout Manchester - the Britannia Hotel, with 5 floors and 363 bedrooms.
It’s going on developing….Later in the same year Bosworth Hall, a
country house style hotel in Warwickshire, was purchased. Bosworth Hall was in the process of being converted from a hospital/nursing home into a hotel and Britannia took over the development from the builders who went bankrupt. The conversion was to produce a 192-bedroom hotel set in twenty seven acres of beautifully landscaped gardens and parkland

Table Service:Customer is seated and menu is presented to the guest, service and clearance is provided by the staff. It is the most common service that is followed in a normal restaurant. Under table service we have following different Services:
1) Silver Service/English Service: Often referred to as "Host Service" because the host plays an active role in the service. good is brought on pattern by the waiter and shown to the guest for approval, after that food is served and is also cleared by the waiter afterwards. Service is done according to the various courses.
Family Service: Here the main courses are pre plated in the dishes with the accompaniments, placed on the table, for the customers to help themselves.
Plated/Pre-plated/American Service: As the name suggests, the food is pre-plated and the service is to be done from the right hand side of the guest.
Butler/French Service: The food once brought inside the restaurant is presented in front of the guest individually, but the service is done by the guest itself, the food may be carved by the waiter as per the suggestion of the guest, and the customer have to help themselves.
Russian Service: The food is not presented in front of the guest, simply laid and the customers need to help themselves. Usually large joints are served in this style of service.
Gueridon: This is a service done where a dish comes, partially prepared from the kitchen, to be completed in the restaurant by the waiter. The cooking is done on a gueridon trolley, which is a mobile trolley, also sometimes known as Flambe Trolley.
