More pubs opting for 'outdoor rooms'
12th April 2016
Despite 2016 getting off to a thoroughly damp start, garden room experts Crown Pavilions says orders are through the roof as beleaguered licensees, hoteliers and restaurants owners seem determined to make the most of the great outdoors in 2016 regardless of the weather.
According to the company, orders for Crown Pavilions’ gazebos and garden rooms are up 23% on this time last year and director Luke Dejahang says the British bulldog spirit is responsible.
He said: “The British are a hardy lot and they do love their alfresco eating, so despite the weather we've seen a significant spike in orders for our outdoor gazebos and garden pods.
“No-one likes being beaten by the weather so a lot of our new corporate customers have made a conscious decision to monetise their gardens regardless of Mother Nature. Whether a small patch of concrete or sweeping lawns, they are proving that you can enjoy the outdoors all year round!”
Champneys owner Stephen Purdew has installed a Crown Pavilions at his Tring centre, while scores of hotel chains and pub groups are following suit.
He said: "We are delighted with our Crown Pavilion and are customers are too. It gives us so many options - and not just in the summer."
Duncan Bannatyne said it added another dimension to the dining opportunities at his hotels in the north east.
“I love Crown Pavilions. The ones we’ve had installed look terrific and they’ve been a great company to deal with. No matter what the weather's like, eating in these gazebos is a fantastic experience."
From garden offices and outdoor kitchens to gazebos and pool rooms, Crown Pavilions has been constructing garden rooms for years.
With prices starting at just £7,000, Luke says there’s never been a better time to invest in the garden.
“The last couple of months have proved that the weather can have a big impact on our lives but it’s very much a case of ‘if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em!
“Our garden rooms enable everyone to enjoy their garden all year round and the Crown Pavilions 30-year guarantee gives peace of mind too.”
