High Spirits

Ready to learn

The High Spirits Leisure Group is a chain of high quality restaurants in the Cumbria area. With cuisines ranging from classic Italian to traditional British, the chain provides the area around Windermere with some of its finest food.

Ready to listen

The High Spirits restaurant chain required a solution which integrated a sophisticated EPOS system with iPad ordering capabilities, CCTV, intruder alarms, TVs, Sonos sound system and site wide network infrastructure with VOIP phone lines. Café Riva also wanted an interactive specials board and stylus pen. 

Ready to deliver

A specialist system was designed together with High Spirits Leisure Group to support their operations, this was especially important at peak times. The system included security, IT, telecommunications and a sound system and would allow each restaurant to run smoothly whilst creating a great ambiance for customers. 

  • We supplied all IT hardware to the restaurants, with each item configured to integrate into the ordering and billing systems. 
  • This integration went further and linked iPads to the EPOS software. In Café Riva we delivered an interactive menu board.
  • A VoIP system was supplied to keep the restaurant and its customers in touch. 
  • A full entertainment system was installed in the form of TVs and Sonos speakers. 

Ready to partner

We have been a partner of High Spirits since they opened their first site. We continue our relationship with a proactive maintenance plan which ensures the equipment stays in shape and through Account Management to make sure they always have the support they need. 

Ready to perform

“Control Group effectively serves as a one-stop-shop for our IT requirements – phones, CCTV, internet, till systems, audiovisual and office software and hardware. These products and services are mission critical to our group of companies, but often a distraction from our core business. Working with Control Group has taken away these headaches, and allows us to focus fully on what we are good at – hospitality!”
