YOUNGS: The Weyside, Guildford, Surrey

Full commercial refurb in just three days

Really popular pubs tend to suffer from visible wear and tear quite quickly and many need refurbishing every three to four years. The Weyside, a high footfall riverside bar and dining room had been thoroughly overhauled by Stenball, but three years later was in need of more than a little TLC and they were briefed to transform it again.

An extraordinarily fast turnaround was vital in order not to lose valuable revenue. Working around the clock, the Stenball team was in and out in just three days. From close of service on Sunday night, by Thursday lunchtime it was open for business.

In that time Stenball had decorated throughout, laid wooden floorboards, installed fixed seating, new lighting and signage – and reworked the back bar. They’d stripped out all cooking and food storage appliances and converted the kitchen into a new, fully tiled high volume catering hub.
