The project

Working with a local operator in a joint venture with Star Pubs, the brief was to create a community pub with a quirky edge that could be transformed into cocktail and games venue.

The interior

The venue was split into a front and back room, along with an extensive garden. The front room was given a strong feature bar with a raked bar front and the decorative tree installation adding to the vibrant colour palette and Victorian inspired wallcoverings and bric-a-brac. The rear room was given a much darker, grown-up feel with dark timber panelling combined with a speak-easy style bar and dramatic lighting features. The garden space was developed to have the feel of a summer festival with potting sheds to the perimeter, an external bar and street food shack to create the feel of a party in the park.
