The Bootham Tavern - York

Nottinghams newest Real Ale House breathes new life into this old city pub, whilst keeping its original charm and quirkiness intact.

The Crossing Ale House & Kitchen - Burton-on-Trent

Situated in the famous brewing town of Burton-Upon-Trent our design brief for The Crossing was to create a traditional ‘Ale House Design’ that has the flexibility to serve as a kitchen/dining experience with Gastro Pub Feel.

The original features such as the timber floor and fireplaces were retained, where as the rest of the finishes were carefully picked to suit the historic pub. The design and layout of the pub was to open up the main trade space and at the same time create intimate areas of seating and low pendant lighting. Collective vintage displays of decorative items are clustered around the pub to give a homely feel.

Forum Bar - King St, Whalley

Already owning Forum Bar on Winkley Street in Preston Town Centre, Nanu Soda was commissioned to refurbish the previously owned retail space in The Ribble Valley village of Whalley, Lancashire. A bar and restaurant set over two floors was briefed with a soft Industrial design. The Interior palette included grey Armourcoat wall finishes against a warm oak block Herringbone flooring and white glossy subway tiling adjacent the concrete bar top. Drift wood walls and vintage designed lighting gave the client just what he wanted.

The Patrick Kavanagh - Moseley 

In the up and coming live music area of Moseley, we refreshed this tired looking bar into something much more beautiful, retaining the traditional features was important whilst adding our quirky touch throughout the pub. 

The West Riding - Leeds

This historic pub in central Leeds has been renovated sympathetically to its listed building status. Modern and quirky elements combine perfectly with traditional features.

Ye Olde John O'Gaunt - Lancaster

The Ye Olde John O’ Gaunt’s is one of Lancaster’s oldest and most revered pubs. This grade 2 listed building located on Market Street is famed for its traditional feel and abundance of live music performance. Nanu Soda’s brief was to create a traditional cask and craft alehouse interior, which would work as a late evening music venue as well as a daytime kitchen serving food and coffee. All the features and historic characteristics of the existing site were retained and sympathetically restored giving the public house back its traditional feel that it was know for. The design scheme combined this traditional public house theme with some rustic and industrial element to give it a more contemporary feel and a brighter finish. Over the years The Ye Olde John O'Gaunt has collated a vast and rich collection of whiskeys from far and wide, which are proudly displayed in a lockable liquor cabinet for all to see. To the rear of the pub sits a cozy secluded beer terrace, which follows the same style using beer barrel tables and industrial metal chairs.

The Nags Head - East Leake

The Red Lion - Redbourne

This country pub and dining site has been redesigned by Nanu Soda to create a more inviting, traditional feel. Original design features throughout the site have been retained and refurbished. The interior overall has been updated to suit the history of the building. Installing oak wall panelling and large stone slabs around the bar coupled with tartan carpets and stags heads bring the countryside in. 

The Lord Roberts - Nottingham

Working once again with Flipside Brewery, Nanu Soda gave the The Lord Roberts pub in Nottingham town centre a quirky makeover to transform it from a decorative but tired pub into a trendy cask ale house.

The Grey Horse - Elvington

Nanu Soda completed the design works to the inn that dates back to the 17th century. The finished site consists of two floors, a traditional pub located on the ground floor and private dining area and restaurant on the first. The finishes throughout have been created to maintain a traditional pub design with bric-a-brac items that relate to the surrounding history of the site.

Qube Cafe Bar - Corby

The newly designed cafe situated in the impressive Corby Borough Council HQ 'The Cube' has a clean easy European interior. The space was a new empty concrete box so leant itself nicely to the design brief of a light and airy minimalist design serving lite bites during the day and cocktails at night. The metal sheet floor was covered over with digitally printed floor tiles and the timber elements such as the cladded bar front and the ceiling detail softens the existing industrial surfaces and clever lighting turns the Qube quickly into a comfortable evening venue.
