Following the government’s roadmap for easing social distancing restrictions, pubs, restaurants and other hospitality venues know they will be able to open from the 12th April if they can host customers outdoors.
Of course, ‘outdoors’ does not necessarily mean out in the elements and that’s why a marquee can make all the difference for your ability to accommodate guests safely.
Whether it’s using an existing beer garden or transforming a car park or other outdoor space, using an outdoor shelter can help extend your premises and create a pleasant al fresco space for your pub, bar, restaurant or other hospitality business.
An outdoor shelter such as a marquee or gazebo is not only a practical solution for COVID-compliance, but also allows you to revamp your business space and create a more diverse space for visitors. You may find after hiring your marquee, you like it so much you decide to purchase it outright for your business!
We supply marquees and gazebos of almost any size to fit your premises.
Purchasing a Marquee
Smaller gazebos start at 2m x 2m and are ideal for creating a smoking shelter or for small establishments.
The sizes of these purchased gazebos go up to 6m x 3m for larger spaces, but if looking for a more long-term solution you may be better off hiring a marquee.
Hiring a Marquee
Increase your capacity, take more booking and even host outdoor events with a larger marquee for hire designed for your requirements.
With many in the hospitality industry looking to make up for lost profits from closures over the last 12 months, a marquee allows for extra capacity and will appeal to guests even when the weather isn’t suitable for sitting outside.
With a number of large sporting events over the summer such as the European Football Championship, extra space will allow you to increase your capacity when the British public return to pubs and other hospitality venues.

An outdoor structure also means your business is able to expand into hosting events such as weddings, parties and corporate events, with the event shelter meaning customers feel more secure their event won’t be affected by bad weather.
You can also cater for colder nights with air flow or patio heaters to keep customers warm and enjoying themselves! Mood lighting and other decorations can be added to create a more inviting space.
A raised floor is ideal for grassy surfaces or even for providing a more ‘luxurious’ feel than a concrete car park.
