  • Bar & Restaurant refurbishment
  • Long Beach Leisure Park, Hornsea
  • Stage 5: Construction

The bar and restaurant at Longbeach Leisure Park were in need of refurbishment and GBA were asked to look at proposals to significantly redevelop the site to cater for families and events.

The existing bar area was situated in a converted agricultural shed with a small stage area. The entrance was uninspiring and the small children’s play area was not visible from the bar area which meant that parents could not monitor young children without leaving the bar.

GBA proposed a new south facing dining area extension on the south elevation. This will incorporate a new more visible and inviting entrance and will be set in a new landscaped beer garden with a new play area. The new area will allow patrons to take advantage of the south facing aspect and the new open plan layout will allow the interior and exterior spaces to feel more cohesive. Due to its southern aspect, we have proposed a large overhang to allow for shade within the new area.

There will be a second extension to the west of the existing barn which will house a new stage and changing areas for performers. The existing barn is clad with agricultural aluminium sheeting. We propose to soften the elevations using a mixture of timber weather boarding and render.
