A104: WingLine E102: Cafe Barriers / Retreat Restaurant
After nearly five years of continual growth, Retreat Grill, Bar & Restaurant faced a challenge – how to accommodate a growing number of diners whilst retaining the eatery’s warm atmosphere and charm.
The existing patio hosted 70 additional diners in good weather, almost doubling capacity, but when the temperature dropped or the skies opened, the space was virtually unusable.
James Robertshaw’s solution was a branded, double sided A104: WingLine canvas awning complemented with five new heaters and mood lighting. Not only does the new feature add to the restaurant’s style, but it generates additional revenue – it paid for itself in just six months with serious gains over the spring, summer and early autumn months.
“The awning’s great. Now we can extend our outside hospitality all year long… Whatever the weather.”
Jeremy Guest, Owner, Retreat Grill, Bar & Restaurant
