“I knew heading into a summer of uncertainty it was imperative that we go above and beyond for our members. We needed a solution during these challenging times and HBH looked fantastic. I quickly discovered another club locally had already ordered their horse box and after their recommendation, it was a no-brainer. This way we can head into the summer knowing we have a outdoor solution. The quirky boxes look amazing as well and will create a memorable experience for all coming to North Foreland. We decided to go for their partner offering, Banger Bros, so we could offer something different to our customers and generate a real buzz at the club and online through social media”
Simon Hodsdon, Managing Director
“At The Altonwood Group we were looking for an innovative way to serve our members and customers at Godstone Golf Club. Horse Box Hospitality offered us just that with a converted horse box, on an affordable rental program. Their boxes come kitted out and ready to go, so we we’re able to serve our customers from day one. Golfers are already talking up the Godstone Burger and we know it’s going to be a huge success.”
Rob Blackman, Director
“At Storm Catering, we were looking to expand our outside hospitality offering at The Railway Inn, for pub customers, passing trade and through offering mobile catering events. We came across HBH and I’m so glad we did. They offer bespoke converted horse boxes, in the colour of our choice, which our customers absolutely love. It comes fully equipped with brand new catering appliances and is ready to go. It’s a complete business on wheels. We have already ordered another horse box with built in pizza ovens!”
Michael O'Brien, General Manager
“At Woodcote, we used a drinks buggy to service our customers on the course, but after much deliberation we decided to introduce something a little more permanent that would have the wow factor. This way we could offer hot food as well as drinks and a place for golfers to sit and relax. Building something wasn’t going to be financially viable, so we looked at other options. Horse Box Hospitality provided an affordable solution that looks great on the course, but can also be easily moved to the clubhouse for weddings and events to act as an outside bar!”
Charles Molony, Ass Secretary
“We have had our horse box in situ for just over 10 weeks now and our members love it. We use it as a place to serve selected golf societies, get a coffee and bacon roll before play and a place to get a casual pint of Guinness or glass of wine after play. It creates a real focal point by the putting green and has increased revenue during Covid restrictions, but continues to do so even though the club house is back open. Horse Box Hospitality have offered us great support throughout and I would highly recommend them as a hospitality partner."
Gary Stangoe, General Manager
We look forward to having our horse box in operation very soon as part of our improved offering to our members, guests and visitors. It ticks all the boxes (excuse the pun) in terms of the flexibility that we require over the next 12 months or so but to provide a quality offering at the same time. Great work Horse Box Hospitality.
Paul Keen, General Manager
I first saw Horse Box Hospitality’s presentation at a GCMA regional meeting and thought it would be a good fit for Verulam, as we don’t have a half way hut. We took one of their trial/promotional horse boxes on a 6 month rental to test the water. I have to say, it has gone down fantastically with the membership and visiting golfers who can now get hot food and drinks on the course. With this in mind, we have already placed an order to purchase our own custom built horse box from HBH for when our trial period is over. I can’t recommend them enough.
Richard Stilwell, General Manager
At Dunstable Downs Golf Club we are always looking for ways to better serve our members that adds real value to their membership. We currently don’t have a half way hut, so as a club we were keen to provide our golfers with the option to get a hot snack or drink during their round. Horse Box Hospitality was able to provide a customised branded solution at a very reasonable price and we can now offer our members, and their guests, the usual hot staples like bacon baps, pasties and hot drinks, whilst on the course. We know it is going to be a big hit with the members and can’t wait to open the doors in the next few weeks.
James Ibbetson, General Manager
With 3 nines and a modern clubhouse, Farleigh is always very busy both inside and out. Serving players making the turn in the clubhouse as well as the usual members and customers was difficult, so we investigated ways to relieve some of the pressure on the F+B team. I saw the horse box at Royal Cinque Ports doing just that during covid and thought that would work for us. Since we installed ours, customers can now get hot food and drinks from the horse box as well as beer and other soft drinks, speeding up play and service. Its been a real bonus and the members love it.
Dave Church, Landlord
We have a huge back garden and a small kitchen which left us struggling to serve customers in a timely fashion when the garden was busy. Horse Box Hospitality were able to provide a solution and a wood fired pizza oven so we can serve customers directly from the garden. The pizza oven cooks pizzas in 90 seconds and we have had a Madri beer tap installed too, so people can get good quality food and pint, without having to come inside. It's been a real blessing and saved us a small fortune in staff as we have to employ less 'runners'.
