Burnt Truffle: Heswall

Posted by Gary Usher (Creator)

I'm so pleased that we are now able to work on Burnt Truffle in Heswall. Now the hard work really starts. My main priority has been to get the electricity upgrade the building has so needed. This has meant getting Scottish Power to come out to Truffle and book us in for a road digging day. Nightmare! It’s all good though and Scottish Power have actually been great. We’re booked in for the 3 Phase upgrade on 22 June.

Next is the kitchen. Off with all the minging tiles and bring on the posh new hospital style white cladding followed by all the equipment. Finally a lick of paint, a bit of staff training and we’ll almost be ready to serve food and drink in a building called a restaurant.

Thank you so much for all your support on Kickstarter and for making this a reality. Thank you for being so patient waiting for your meal pledge tings. I’m so sorry for anyone who (like me) thought that the opening would be in May. With all the upgrades and installations going to plan we hope to be open by the second week in July. The moment we get the all clear we will be posting out the meal pledges.

Thank you again and I’m totes looking forward to seeing you all in Heswall for lolz and bantz. Lots of love from Gazza, Sticky and Truffle xxx

      So exciting. Oh, and how are the tables in the loos going? Do hope this will be Fyne Dining establishment rather than your other amateur place with the veg tossing waiitng staff.

      I always thought that first post about Bum Truffle was a joke...

      Good luck and can't wait for our first meal xx

      Do what needs to be done to get it right first time. It will save you making up lots of new swear words. Hope all goes smoothly. X

      Don't think any of us are champfing at the bit. Take your time, do what's right for the gaffe, and when it comes, the opening night party will be maHOOsive. Well, for us, obvs: you'll be stuck in the back, sweating over canapes, HVAC and drying paint. Like we care - we're all gonna meet! (I've got an Iceland loyalty card - let me know if you want me to bring Twizzlers).

      Hi Gazza and Team,

      Great news on the progress.

      I have sent you a tweet and a message via kickstarter but not received any reply regarding what has happened to the Apron or recipe cards that I was meant to receive.

      "Got you down for a meal for 2, (100) apron (50) Menu Cards (30) and founders wall (25) is that correct?"

      Could you please reply?
