Decking for a family-friendly pub in Surrey

In January 2015, the TimberTech team received a call from Young & Co, a British brewery with more than 200 public houses throughout the UK. One of their locations – the Hand & Spear in Weybridge, Surrey – was in need of some new outdoor decking, and Young’s wanted to find out if our products were up to the task. 

The Hand & Spear is a popular gastropub with a stylish, contemporary vibe, but its outdoor area was beginning to look rather the worse for wear. The existing timber deck had proven problematic, with the heavy footfall taking a visible toll on the wooden boards and leaving them in dire need of a thorough cleaning at the end of each day. 

Keen to maintain the Hand & Spear's modern image, Young & Co decided that it was time for them to make the change to composite decking. Composite deck boards are far better-suited to high-traffic environments than standard wood products, and the low-maintenance nature of composite wood makes it an obvious choice for commercial environments such as a busy public house.

After a brief conversation with Young & Co’s representative, we dispatched samples of two different TimberTech decking products: EasyClean Terrain and EasyClean Legacy. Both of these are examples of ‘capped’ decking; this means that the boards are topped with a protective sleeve, allowing the surface of the deck to be wiped clean with a damp cloth. 

We quoted Young’s for both EasyClean Terrain and EasyClean Legacy, and after some deliberation, they opted for the former in EasyClean Terrain+ Silver Maple – an excellent choice of colour for a contemporary outdoor space.

Site Survey

Before installation commenced, TimberTech’s Assistant Sales Manager travelled to Surrey (together with our Architect) to visit the Hand & Spear and conduct a site survey. It was decided at this point that the decked area would be surrounded by our RadianceRail railing system – Young & Co chose a bold black colour for the handrail, which complements the grey-coloured decking perfectly.

Of course, much of a pub’s business is conducted after dark, and so the Hand & Spear owners also requested integrated post lights and LED spotlights to illuminate their deck in the evenings.

The Hand & Spear’s decked area now looks very different indeed. Gone are the troublesome timber boards, and customers of all ages can now enjoy a superbly stylish outdoor area that’s easy for the staff to maintain. 

We at TimberTech are proud to have provided decking to a Young & Co public house, and we sincerely hope that the Hand & Spear’s regulars will enjoy the revitalised terrace!
