Why you should adapt your pub to meet all-day dining trends

Rosie@cartwrightcommunications.co.uk

Today customers have the choice to eat what they want, whenever they want. As a result, many pubs have made strategic business changes to successfully compete in ‘all-day dining’ to meet this trend that dominates the industry.

The majority of pubs also have outside areas which can be used to fulfil the huge and growing desire we have to eat alfresco. This is a vital USP for the pub trade. High street restaurants might have some limited pavement seating and retail mall eateries can’t offer outside eating at all.

So, if you’re a pub owner or landlord who has decided to take the plunge to offer all-day dining, what do you do next? As maintenance, design and fit out experts, here are some clues to keeping your pub looking good at all hours of the day.

REVAMPING DAMAGED OR TIRED-LOOKING CHAIRS – WOOL OR NO WOOL?

The brief

The owners of these (originally) great looking chairs have decided that it’s time to improve their seating if they wish to maintain their pub’s upmarket image. We tend to agree!

The chairs have been covered in 100% wool fabric – tartan check and herringbone designs. They are naturally fairly fine fabrics which, in itself, make them more easily worn. Spills and stains show up more readily on plainer fabrics and the paler the colour, the more the stains will show.

The solution

Our recommendation was to source some suitable replacement fabrics to match or compliment the backs, which are in good condition and don’t need to be replaced. The leather corners on the tartan chair have probably been placed there as front edges and arms on chairs are areas of high rub. However, this has left the middle front exposed to become a weak spot.

Henry VIII was the original Brand Image Maintenance icon if ever there was one.  If you saw the recent documentary on Hampton Court Palace, you might have thought that it was the start of a Tudor Grand Designs series. Henry VIII had over 50 palaces by the end of his reign during which he embarked on a never-seen-before campaign of courtly magnificence and splendor.

Henry VIII’s palaces made bold statements. Go to Hampton Court and be in awe of the intricate designs of the many chimneys that dominate the palace roof tops.
