Following an extensive renovation and months of anticipation, The Hungry Guest is preparing to open the doors of its new café on West Malling High Street in time for Easter.
Situated on the site of the former Mackenzie’s café the building has been transformed thanks to the painstaking work of the team of architects, specialist restorers and contractors. It has proved very challenging, not least because parts of the building are 11th century and listed. Much of the work has been carried out by hand to avoid the risk of damage from machinery. The café features an open plan kitchen so that customers will be able to see the team of chefs at work and diners will be able to enjoy the surroundings from a choice of seating arrangements, including family friendly booths and comfy chesterfield couches on the first floor. The original Grade 1 listed fireplace has also been restored to its former glory meaning a cosy atmosphere in the winter months is assured.
Heading up the new site is the talented chef and cookery writer, Julie Friend. Winner of BBC Masterchef in 1997 Julie brings with her a wealth of experience having run her own successful delicatessens in London before making the move to the Kent countryside in 2014.
“I am thrilled to be involved with a company like the Hungry Guest whose principles are all about the quality, whether that is in the produce or the service. I feel we will be filling a gap in the market in West Malling, whilst perfectly complimenting the other businesses that are already established in the village. For a change I won’t be in the kitchen full-time but you can guarantee I will be casting my beady eye over every plate that is served and my tasting spoon will be working overtime!”
