“The Newbury is a multi-award winning gastro pub which prides itself on its exciting British a la carte menu, a great selection of ales, extensive wine list & fabulous service.”
When Pete first visited our workshop & showroom it was a great opportunity to learn about his new project. He explained how he was building a brand new private dining space within his existing pub which would be home to a micro-distillery. Visitors would be able to experience making gin and sample the varieties of gin on offer.
A large 16 person industrial dining table was required but due to the size of the room it had to be long and narrow. After discussing the range of material finishes on display in our showroom we agreed that we would get to work on a new bespoke industrial dining table design that fully filled his brief. We knew that a chunky leather chairs had already been chosen to go with our table and so we decided to design a traditional table that had legs in each corner. This meant the legs were not only visible but also they allowed for as much clearance as possible for the tightly placed chairs to fit. With the table being 5.4m long we decided to manufacture it in 3 sections making transportation and installation easier. The 3 sections also worked perfectly with the positioning of the chairs.
Pete opted for a smooth solid Oak top finished in our Dark Oak colour to match with the other items going into the dining space. The raw hand polished steel frame and legs were finished off with some brass corner bumpers.
"When choosing a company that can do bespoke projects you have to do your research - a lot of it - then I came across Steel Vintage where they specialise in the word bespoke. I looked at other projects that they had carried out and knew straight away. With my project every little detail had to be right and built to fully optimise the space. Jon and I worked from my mood board, that I had created, showing the side unit I bought in France for my Still to sit on. I wanted to combine tradition and modern together using the wing back chairs that were also hand made."
