Restaurant, bar and pub extension marquees

October 7, 2020

Are you looking to increase covers and seating capacity in your restaurant, bar or pub? We offer restaurant, bar and pub extension marquees that could be just what you need at your eatery or drinking establishment.

Originally offered as an autumn and winter solution, our restaurant, bar and pub extension marquees allow busy inns, eateries and bars to utilise the outdoor spaces, gardens and terraces that are so popular during the summer months, to house a marquee.

Whilst our marquees can be used as standalone structures, they are ideally suited for creating seamless extensions from buildings to increase useable dining and entertaining space. A great way to increase capacity during the colder months, but perhaps even more pertinent now – as COVID-19 persists and social distancing needs mean that available entertaining and dining space is already compromised.

A ‘ready to go’ entertaining space

Our restaurant, bar and pub extension marquees can be styled and themed to match your interior decor, or to match the season. They are supplied fully lined, with fully carpeted wooden flooring, heating, lighting and electrics. Working with one of our partner companies we can even supply complete AV, entertainment and internet connectivity solutions too.

Our marquee heating solution is whisper quiet, blowing warm air into the marquee via a thermostat controlled, floor vented system. The temperature controls are fully accessible from within the marquee, even though the heaters themselves are stored outside. We’ll be able to calculate the number of heaters that you’ll need, and the optimal positioning for them based upon the size and exact design of your marquee.

A social distancing solution?

Retail extension marquee, restaurant, bar and pub extension marqueesTo keep diners and drinkers safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, tables and other seating areas need to be suitably spaced out. A minimum of two metres – possibly more – could be needed between tables, to allow for access and the free-flowing movement of both customers and waiting staff.

For any dining or drinking establishment, there will be a minimum number of covers to be serviced in order to ensure that operation is viable. A reduction in customer capacity of around fifty percent could make impossible for pubs, bars and restaurants break even; let alone turn a profit.

Restaurant, bar and pub extension marquees offer an opportunity to reclaim some useable space, by utilising outdoor areas to create, warm, cosy and socially distanced spaces for customers to enjoy. We can even create additional, separate entry and exit points using glass doors. This means that staff and customers will be able to move freely without queues or bottlenecks in doorways.
