Pub Outdoor Furniture
25 Mar 2021
Outdoor furniture for pubs is crucial to maximising space available, especially during spring and summer time when trade is at it's peak.
Beer gardens originated in Munich, the capital of the German state of Bavaria. In Britain beer gardens are open spaces attached to the pub. In the countryside they usually provide a surrounding view of the area and in towns and cities are more terraced spaces. Many pubs compete throughout the year to be named 'Britain's best beer garden' in numerous awards. Its important furniture is treated to prevent rot and decay preserving it's appearance and longevity.
Traditionally, pub gardens consist of rectangular wooden bench tables sitting in long rows on gravel and shaded areas. Beer gardens do not have to be big, small beer gardens in cities, small towns and villages may consist of a shady courtyard, umbrellas, and a handful of tables, benches, and chairs.
In recent years the importance of offering under cover service outdoors has become paramount. Many pubs have erected marquis style cover or wooden Gazebos for the flexibility of trade during all weathers. A range of outdoor furniture can be used in these areas as they are not directly exposed to the elements. Metal and wood options such as Xavier chairs and Riviera sets, are easily stackable and configured to suit different changing groups.
The traditional rectangular pub bench is the epitome of an English pub garden. In recent years variations of this pub favourite have emerged. Round wooden benches are useful for awkward spaces and give a great social feel. Walk in benches provide a solution to the "leg over" approach needed for the traditional styles.
