The Tented Dining Pavilion

Yorke Arms Dining pavilion (6)

One of Ironart’s most exciting projects in recent years. A beautiful tented dining pavilion, created for Bill & Frances Atkins at The Yorke Arms near Harrogate.  The Yorke Arms is a prestigious venue –  nationally recognized as one of the UK’s top Restaurant with Rooms. Chef/Proprietor Frances Atkins and her talented team have held a Michelin Star since 2003.

The dining pavilion was designed by Andy Thearle at Ironart, it comprises of a sculptural, galvanized mild steel gazebo frame, designed to stand bare in the winter as an eye-catching focal point in the garden. In summer the addition of a weatherproof, fire-resistant canvas cover transforms the struture into a breathtaking tented dining room with an integral table that comfortably seats eight. A domed canopy over an open fire in the centre of the table creates a unique and intimate atmosphere.

Another commission from the backlog of images we’re working through, is this external staircase at The Yorke Arms – a Michelin starred restaurant with rooms – near Harrogate, Yorkshire.

Bill and Frances Atkins who own the Yorke Arms needed a simple, practical yet elegant solution for a fire escape  at the back of their business. The metal fire escape staircase features cast iron tread plates and scroll ends and does just what it says on the tin! Not the most earth-shatteringly exciting project we’ve ever done, but the Yorke Arms is an absolutely amazing place and we highly recommend a visit if you are ever in that part of Yorkshire. Frances Atkins is a Michelin starred chef and the food at the Yorke Arms is sublime.
