Case Study: Mr Fogg’s Tavern
The ground floor tavern features a warm wooden interior with 19th century artefacts adorning the walls and hanging from the ceiling, a focal point being a large aviary filled with plants, stuffed birds and other oddities in an authentic Victorian style. Then there are customised pieces such as an antique junk rigged model boat and cannon firing a union jack that are all hung from the ceiling. In true Victorian style even the Chinese fish bowls basins in the bathrooms reflect the introduction of Asian influences of the time.
Looking towards the entrance where you can see the fake beamed ceiling.

The gin parlour upstairs features William Morris wall papers and is adorned with pictures, plates and decoration that reflects the theatrical character of Aunt Gertrude in the story.
We had all of the furniture specially made to fit as well as antiquifying the service lift shaft behind the bar, ensuring that no part of the design was left untouched.
