wish list

Greene King Local Pubs are at the heart of communities across England and Wales and are a great place to catch up with friends or watch football, or even treat the family to an indulgent Sunday roast.

The Challenge

Leading pub designers Tibbatts Abel were asked to get involved in a project to uplift a range of Greene King Local Pubs, breathing new life into the buildings in order to engage with a wider audience.

Designer Adam Tibbatts said: "The pubs were small sites in local environments, renowned for selling cask ales.

"Our job was to help revitalise these public houses and while enjoying a common theme between them, every one also needs to look and feel independent in its design."

The Solution

Tibbatts had a long working history with Chantelle Lighting and Adam knew they would be the perfect company to assist in this project.

He said: "We have a good working relationship with Chantelle, and we know that the lighting we get from them is innovative, top quality and long lasting.

"Not only that, Chantelle boasts a range of artisan craftsmen and women who hand craft the lighting in Lancashire, which I felt was important when looking to retain the heritage of our high street and community pubs across the UK."

Adam and Chantelle's Managing Director, Anthony Holly, looked at each pub in isolation making sure that the design and lighting chosen refl ected its name, brand and surrounding community.

Anthony said: "Industrial lighting is very much in fashion at the moment, so to ensure the pubs were right up the minute in terms of design we decided to run with this theme.

"We chose pieces suited to each individual and which represented their name or perhaps the heritage of their area, which worked extremely well."

The Result

Each pub has been brought back to life following a considered process of restoration and the results are stunning.

Adam said: "The lighting sets the mood for each pub and gives each one the individuality we were looking for.

We are proud to have played our part in keeping these community hubs alive and are already working closely with Chantelle Lighting on further projects of this kind."
