Part of the renowned ‘Charlotte’s Group’ founded in 1984 by CEO Alex Wrethman, Charlotte’s W5 is the newest addition to the 3 strong portfolio of restaurants in West London. Set in a stunning converted warehouse, in the trendy borough of Ealing, the bistro attracts a mix of loyal local custom and guests from further afield captivated by word of mouth and understated promotion.


Charlotte’s W5 is a British Brasserie with a menu built around the quality, provenance and sustainability of ingredients. The sourcing of ingredients is vital to creating the ever-changing dishes on the menu

The kitchen has four undercounter units – one for meat and fish, one for garnish, one for larder and pastry, another for breakfast servicing.

The undercounter units found in the kitchen at Charlotte’s W5 feature refrigerated drawer storage in a range of sizes. Each drawer is specifically designed for its Gastronorm compatibility and the units are fitted with castors for simple positioning and to aid cleaning.

“I find the size and format of the Gram Gastro range to be extremely versatile. We can fit up to nine of the GN 1/4 containers in each drawer – something that is particularly useful in our garnish fridge, which we use for a variety of different ingredients.” Lee states.

“In order to maintain freshness and produce the menu our guests expect, we need equipment that can deliver, and though it might not be an exciting piece of kit, having reliable refrigeration is vital”.

We can’t afford for a fridge to break down, even short term
