Works have recently been completed on the £1.2m refurbishment of the restaurant facilities at the Bath & West Showground. Trustees of the Royal Bath & West of England Society signed off the expenditure in partnership with in-house caterers, Hayes Catering Ltd on a new facility that will cater for 500 people of the ground floor and 350 on the first floor, making it the largest dining and conference space in Somerset, North Dorset and West Wiltshire.

The investment is the latest phase of a major overhaul of the showground that has featured the conversion of the old society offices into a state of the art Rural Enterprise Centre, and the refurbishment of nine toilet & shower blocks, as the Showground looks to attract a range of new clients to the south west’s premier outdoor event venue.

Somerton-based. Edgar Builders were commissioned to carry out the refurbishment that was completed by May 2019 in time for the Royal Bath & West Show. The professional team supporting the project is made up of Della Valle Architects from Shepton Mallet, project and cost management from Randall Simmonds LLP.
