Case Study - The Three Horseshoes, Princethorpe

Last week we had the pleasure of visiting Rebecca Taylor, landlady of The Three Horseshoes in Princethorpe after supplying the furniture for their recent refurbishment. Upon meeting Rebecca, we had a short chat about the refurbishment, asking some very important questions such as, why did she choose us?
Continue reading below to find out more…

1. Can you give me a quick overview of your business?
"We are a country pub that does live music and once our kitchen is finished, we would like to be a food based venue."

2. What was the main reason for the redesign of your Pub?
"The pub was very tired and outdated so we wanted a whole new revamp to bring us up to date."

3. Why when thinking of ideas for new furniture, did you choose Pub Stuff?
"We went on recommendation from Enterprise who use Pub Stuff often for their furniture so they advised we went and had a look at your showroom as it was local to see what we liked."

4. Why did you choose the products you now have in your Pub?
"We wanted a more modern and contemporary feel to the venue but with comfy seating and dining areas so Nicole advised the Lisbon, Chapel and Xavier chairs for dining and then the Warwick chairs for comfortable seating for drinks in the bar area. We still wanted to keep within the country pub look though so we still had some traditional items such as the traditional low stools, pedestal tables etc but gave them a modern twist with a lick of paint and contemporary fabrics."

5. When redesigning the pub, did you have any involvement from another designer such as furniture quote? If so, please specify:
"Enterprise sourced a designer who came out to the venue and had a look around to advise what kind of thing we should go for and what we should have in each area. They suggested certain colours and looks and then we went from there."

6. Were any other contractors involved with the redesign or did you do it by yourself?
"Concord contractors"

7. How much was the whole cost of your Pub refurbishment?
"The whole cost was approx. £60k"

8. Overall, were you happy with the process from contact, design and delivery of your products?

"We were extremely happy with the whole process from start to finish. Pub stuff were very accommodating when we asked if we could do extra things to their furniture. Nicole was great and really helped us when we were trying to decide what furniture we wanted."

Other comments:

"I went to the Ei Show and after seeing the Pub Stuff stand, I wasn’t going to order from you because the items looked more for a traditional pub. Upon visiting the Pub Stuff showroom and explaining what I was after, the staff were very accommodating and made sure they could do exactly what I wanted as I asked for extra padding on the back on the Xavier chair and you did it. I was too quick to strike you off after just seeing you at the show, thinking you wouldn’t be able to do the more modern, contemporary designer look but I was wrong! I am really pleased that Enterprise recommended you because I have been so pleased with your service and products. I would definitely recommend you and use you again."
