News: Cloverleaf planning second Rotherham restaurant


Cloverleaf, the operator of informal pub style amenity restaurants across the north of England and Midlands, has submitted plans for their second development in Rotherham.

Cloverleaf has submitted a planning application, drawn up by Turley Associates, for a new 1,300 sq m pub restaurant at the Beighton Link business park.

"Brookhouse Farm" would create 25 full time and 50 part time jobs. The application states that: "The proposal makes a positive contribution to job creation in this area of Rotherham. It is estimated that the development will generate in the region of 70- 75 jobs, at least a third of which will be full-time. Cloverleaf's policy is to employ local people in all positions where possible. There is a clear focus on training and staff development which enhances the local skills pool.

"In addition to this, the amenity restaurant will appoint local suppliers, where possible, to service operational requirements thereby benefiting the wider local economy. Unlike many operators, Cloverleaf are not tied to large supply companies and the company actively work with local producers."

Cloverleaf operate the Monk's Bridge Farm pub at Dinnington and operate successfully from 12 sites close to business parks and employment areas.

Brewer and pub operator, Greene King, recently completed the acquisition of the entire share capital of Cloverleaf Restaurants for £55.8m. They see the growing company in a good position to capitalise on the growing carvery market. They also reported on a strong pipeline of new sites with a minimum of ten additional outlets expected to open within two years.

Beighton Link is home to Sandvik's £7.5m European Centre of Excellence (SECoE) and South African BBQ manufacturer, Cadac.
