Markilux Pergola Awning at The Truscott Arms



Markilux pergola awning creates perfect alfresco dining area for Gastro Pub in Maida Vale.

The proprietors of Gastro Pub, The Truscott Arms in Little Venice, Maida Vale, Andrew & Mary Fishwick had decided to upgrade parts of the Pub and rebuild the garden area to form a non smoking Alfresco dining area. The area, on three levels, is enclosed by a mixture of buildings, timber formwork and accessed via an external stairway. In consultation with the owners, and their builders the final design has worked very well.

We installed a retractable remote control operation markilux pergola awning: 6.9 meters wide x 5.8 meter projection.

In addition to the markilux pergola awning and to warm up the ambiance we supplied and fitted a pair of fully dimmable Hotspot Light & heater units each delivering 3kW of infra red heat. On an upper deck we installed a further Markilux 990 awning and Hotspot heater. All awning fabrics a luscious red. To finish beautiful hanging garden was fitted to the back wall to stunning effect.

Our awnings were only part of the refurbishment of the garden which included a compact service area with glass washing , drink cooling cabinets , and sink . We area was covered with a new deck and tables and chairs . The result is stunning and very successful.


Client Comments

Jon Clapham at Alfresco 365/Sherlock and Watson Ltd visited to discuss a retractable canopy over our Gastro pub garden at The Truscott Arms, Maida Vale, London. We wanted to create an alfresco dining area to extend our restaurant seating capacity. We went for the Marlkilux 110 pergola awning, plus 2 dimmable Hotspot Heat/light combination units. The whole garden make over was a considerable investment , the ambiance is fantastic , and one year later it has paid for itself.
