This beautiful pub is located in a Grade II listed building that was designed by Frederick Charles Palmer (architect to the National Provincial Bank between 1920 and 1932) and built in 1927 as the home of NatWest & Kentish Bank. It has been lovingly transformed into Maidstone town centre's first independent freehouse to open for more than two decades.
Having refurbished and restored the building to its former grandeur at launch, the owners had now decided to revitalise the pub layout to a more modern standard while maintaining the stunning atmosphere provided by its solid oak columns & panelling, ornate cornice and best of all, its stunning huge glass ceiling dome. When it came to replace the decking within the large beer garden and outside bars, it was important that the product be sustainable and could withstand the daily heavy footfall while in keeping with the traditional aesthetics.
The owners elected Timco wood composite due to its durability and long lasting properties, more specifically, they chose our Vintage range as it sits perfectly with their traditional design and modern requirements.
They needed to revitalise the Pub layout whilst maintaining the atmosphere given by the building. A modern and vintage style together. A solid and long-lasting product, due to their huge number of customers. Last but not least, they also required a material with a low-slip surface.
We offered them our Vintage board. The Vintage provides strong durability and can be easily refurbished from any scratching from the many tables, chairs and perhaps the odd set of high heels. Above all, the most important of the deciding factors was customer safety, with Timco Vintage boards low risk of slip groove surface helping to avoid any unfortunate accidents even when wet, the decision was simple
