The bar became somewhere diners could enjoy sitting for an aperitive, to eat or for after-dinner drinks. Perched on the high stools they can observe the hustle and bustle of the bar tenders and linger that little bit longer. This flexible space could also be cleared of furniture to become a focus for entertainment, such as a band, should the occasion arise.
Artwork and planting such as the ivy pot wall takes inspiration from nearby Richmond Park and its woodland wildlife. This combines with soft, warm lighting to achieve a relaxed and welcoming environment throughout.
The completed refurbishment was well received by customers, increasing per head spend and the amount of covers throughout the day and evening.
