Williams Refrigeration has announced the winner of its recent social media competition, in partnership with The Staff Canteen, as Hooked! Restaurant & Bar.
Specialising in a stunning fish menu, the Truro based business won a Williams Amber A135 cabinet wrapped in a cool white finish, featuring Hooked!’s signature branding.
Rob Duncan, Chef and Manager at Hooked! Restaurant & Bar, commented on winning the free fridge: “We have been busier than ever this summer and realised that an additional fridge for the bar would make a lot of difference for the staff as well as the customers. So I thought I would try my luck with the competition.
“It was really exciting to win something especially as it benefits the business.”

Rob added that the Williams refrigerator will mostly be used for chilling white wine glasses, as well as holding table water and condiments.
“It will save a journey upstairs for the guys to get water and other drinks, allowing more time to serve our customers,” Rob said.
Hooked! opted to take advantage of Williams’ Chameleon vinyl wrap service, which was a “smooth process”, says Rob.
“The design process was really easy and the finished product looks amazing. We all love the design and it's great that it can be seen by customers in the restaurant.”
Not only does the product look great in Hooked!’s restaurant, the Amber A135 is “performing well”, while a number of features has impressed Rob, who admitted this is his first Williams product.
“The cabinet is as strong and robust as it looks, and is certainly an upgrade on our existing equipment in the kitchen.
“It’s easy to use and has so far delivered a reliable and consistent performance. The fact that space is tight in our bar area, the fridge fits perfectly too,” Rob said.
Commenting on why Williams ran the competition, Malcolm Harling, Sales and Marketing Director at Williams, said: “The competition has been a great success and the finished product looks fantastic. After a tough period for businesses and chefs due to the pandemic, we wanted to give something back.
“We had a strong response and Hooked! Restaurant & Bar was chosen at random when the competition closed. It’s been a privilege to work with them and we’re hooked on the design!”
Rob added: “Williams has been excellent right from when they contacted us about winning, to design and delivery. They answered any queries promptly and it’s been a great experience.
“We don't currently have any other Williams products but we would definitely be using them again in the future. Thank you so much for our free fridge!”
