Mount Pleasant hotel has a new brand name for its restaurant and bar.
Set in a beautiful Georgian building overlooking the Priory Church with direct access to the Malvern Hills, this contemporary restaurant was recently rebranded Mulberry Tree Restaurant & Bar. Its formal launch took place on the 1st of May 2019. The management of the hotel had reason to choose this name for its restaurant. Situated right in the heart of town, the Mount Pleasant has a deep connection with Malvern Hills and its history with the Mulberry Tree.
Malvern’s relationship with the Mulberry tree started when literary legend, George Bernard Shaw planted one in the Priory park in 1936 to mark his 80th birthday. Although the tree was destroyed later but parts of its cuttings found their way to Australia and then back to Malvern many years later.
The Mount Pleasant has one such ‘Shaw’ cutting of that tree.
In the words of AJ Bains, “For us, Mulberry tree is a symbol of nature, faith and growth and it resonates with our love for Great Malvern, its community and its history and our pursuit of service excellence. Mulberry Tree is the right name for our restaurant as it represents a promise of growth and everlasting faith. Exactly what we want our customers to think of us.”
We hope to live up to the new brand name & serve our guests with consistency & quality.
Thank you all for your continued support.
