- Glentress Peel Contracts
So Alpine Bikes for the shop, and “GT Restaurants Ltd” for the cafe. Pleased to see it isn’t a big chain for the latter, as it seems to be a couple of locals behind it, which is hopefully a good thing. I am reserving judgement for the time being.
Just hope the cake is as big as the hub – I had a piece of carrot cake the size of my face on Saturday. 😀Posted 7 years agoiaincSubscriber
Seeing as how Glentress hotel already exists at the bottom of the trail yet we all head to The Hub, does that not tell them something about our preferences?
In general I’d say no IMO. Who’d want to head to an ‘offsite’ location for a cuppa and cake when there is one right there in the carpark where you can keep an eye on your bike etc…
Presumably new facility will be similar in that you park bike in safe visible location etc ? I’d not be too keen to leave it on roof of car and head to a Cafe, whther in a forest or anywhere elsePosted 7 years agoNorthwindSubscriber

Can only speak for myself but no… Never even occurred to me to go further away than the Hub, never mind into a hotel when i want a quick hit in a cafe while covered in mud.Posted 7 years agonodrog2Member
Have eaten at The Glentress Hotel before for evening meals. It’s very good indeed so hopefully that will transfer to the new cafe.
As for Alpine bikes, i’m sure they’ll do a good job but as i never use the Hub bike shop when i’m at GT then i don’t see myself using Alpine either. Good luck to them though.Posted 7 years agoArtillerydaveMember
yep, the guy who runs the Glentress Hotel is a real good bloke and his food is absolutely top drawer, so well done to him.
He has put our club up, the Woollybacks, loads of times and always does an ace spread.
Well done to his team on this new venture and hope it goes very well for them.Posted 7 years agobigjimSubscriber
Whatever happened to the “boycott the new owners” when it was announced that the girls had lost the tender for the “new place”??
Yes things have changed since a face and name were put to it! Bless the internet.
Would be good to keep both, I like the Hub, there is a good vibe that will be hard to match in a big architecty glass and wood place.Posted 7 years agoKitMember
will the new owners keep up the kids mtbing classes like tracy and emma used to?
Well that’s nothing to do with the cafe or the shop, so I’d imagine that they will continue to run classes/coaching, unless the FC have categorically told them to shove off the site entirely.
Any public comments from Tracy and Emma yet? Would be nice to see them wishing the new tenants all the best, offering support and so on.Posted 7 years agoMrs ToastMember
I’m still quite sad about The Hub going, their cake was indeed the best cake in the world. But as people have said, at least some locals have been given the tender, and if the Glentress Hotel peeps can do cake as well as they do steak then hopefully all is not lost.
I do wonder what Tracey and Emma will do though. 🙁Posted 7 years ago
