wish list

Damaged by a major fire in 2015, the grade-two listed Fleece in Addingham became the first property in Yorkshire for the award-winning Seafood Pub Company. Spread across 5,000 square feet, The Fleece is a classic country inn which has been fully renovated, maintaining its original exterior whilst taking on the Seafood Pub Company signature interior design features. 

THE CHALLENGE

The Seafood Pub Company wanted to give The Fleece in Addingham a new lease of life after its enforced closure. They wanted to incorporate a mixture of old and new, with a traditional Yorkshire bar being complemented by a first-floor Gin and Champagne bar and contemporary function and dining rooms.

The team at Chantelle Lighting have worked closely with the Seafood Pub Company on the lighting design for many of their sites in Lancashire and understood that while they like to incorporate some signature SPC finishing touches into their venues, they must sit alongside design features unique to the venue, its location and its clientele.

The Fleece is a characterful venue with breath-taking high beams, traditional stone fittings and bronze bars and it was important that the new lighting complemented these features whilst helping to create a warm ambience and atmospheric cavern of intimate and social spaces.

THE SOLUTION 

Chantelle Lighting managing director, Anthony Holly said:

"We've worked with the Seafood Pub Company on a number of projects over the past few years and so had a good understanding of what they wanted the lighting to look and feel like. We recommended a range of different light fittings to work together and create a warm, cosy feel for drinkers and diners alike.

"This included using industrial themed bronze pendants and wall lights on the ground floor, to contrast perfectly with the stone walls and wooden beams and create a welcoming atmosphere.

"Complementing teal seating and grey panelling in the main dining area, industrial wall lights were paired with reclaimed pendants above the tables. This contrast of textures and colours produces a warm and inviting feel for diners.

"Upstairs in The Fleece, the lighting takes on a rural Yorkshire feel with antler chandeliers and wall lights helping to create a stunning look and talking point in the private function room. In the Gin and Champagne bar, they are combined with bronze pendants for a rustic effect."

THE RESULT

The Fleece is the heartbeat of the community in Addingham and its reopening has been met by rave reviews from customers, local businesses and the local media. Anthony added:

"The lighting chosen for The Fleece combines perfectly with the soft furnishings and original features in the grade-two listed building to create a warm, homely feel throughout. The combination of industrial fittings with the antler pieces work brilliantly together and have helped to once again bring The Fleece to life."
