Pubs and Restaurants

Never has it been more important for a busy, successful pub, cafe or restaurant to offer their customers alternative, trendy, inviting and al fresco type drinking and eating facilities on their premises. The products to enable this now exist in abundance.

From sun shade to rain protection, patios or gardens, dining areas or relaxing spaces – Samson Awnings & Terrace Covers has it covered! Not only does we create extra space outside and therefore additional revenue for you establishment we can also make a superb featured area to be promoted for more outdoor functions and parties.

With more people than ever before experiencing the café culture of Central Europe on business trips and holidays and with our own climate becoming increasingly warmer, they readily accept and are indeed happy to venture outside to be seated underneath suitable covered areas to relax.

Unfortunately our weather is not as consistent as Spain, France or Italy and we often find ourselves playing host to rolling grey clouds of rainfall even though it may be a perfectly acceptable temperature outside.

This is why Samson Awnings & Terrace Covers have excelled in this market. Our range of sun shading products are effective in blocking out both sunlight and the draining heat during the hot summer days, but they are also waterproof in case the unreliable British weather strikes again. We implement the finest awning cover technology so that your guests can enjoy an al fresco lifestyle to the highest satisfaction.

For example, they can be used to cater for:

  • Pub Gardens, Verandas and Terraces
  • Restaurant Dining Areas
  • Smoking and Drinking Areas
  • Al Fresco Style Café’s
  • Bars and Outdoor Entertaining Areas

As of July 1st 2007, the UK smoking ban came into force. The smoking ban has forced many people outside since then and this should be seen as an opportunity to offer alternative but acceptable areas where the customer can eat, drink and smoke in comfort if they wish, without upsetting non-smokers who also have the option to be outside or inside.

Many of the solutions Samson Awnings can provide for your establishment require careful planning and obviously in some cases local planning permission too, however most systems do not require any major building works or traditional footings like an extension would require.

A lot of the options we provide however can be purchased and erected in no time at all to give additional seating and therefore extra potential revenue. Properly planned the schemes can also give a massive boost to your establishments reputation with customers.

We can offer Heating & Lighting systems on request. Careful consideration to the installation of modern heating and lighting systems can mean that many of the products we provide can be used most of the year round whilst also providing an attractive, inviting area at your pub or restaurant.

You should be very careful about choosing the type of product you install as a lot of inferior quality products that look good for the first few months will easily get destroyed when bad weather takes its toll on materials. It is also worth taking into account that components primarily designed for hot Mediterranean weather will not withstand the more aggressive wet and windy British weather conditions we experience.
