The country pub is something all of us have had in our family history. The outdoor furniture always had a rustic look and the interior always has an inviting atmosphere. This style has been somewhat forgotten in some parts of America but it lives on here and there in small parts of each city or county. In Europe this style is not as popular as old times but is still quite popular even now. There is certainly something to be said for using this in your own business so we are going to talk about it today.
There is no set definition for a “Country Pub”. However they often have a few factors in common when people go to them. None of them look too “rich” and all of them have an appeal for the normal person. Indeed it is the fact that they do not take themselves too seriously that draws so many people in. Relaxing and kicking back are things that you must have if you are trying to put this sort of thing together.
Outdoor Furniture in this style needs a specific look throughout. Our advice is that you can never go wrong with wood pieces. Even when they have worn down from use that actually makes the pub look even more like a relaxing place to be. It shows that people love to be there and will go there so much that they have worn them down. Having some initials carved in somewhere also lends to the feel of the place. Anything that makes your business look “lived-in” is good for it. After all when this style was first around people would literally live in the place.
You would think that one requirement of being a “country pub” is to actually be in the country. This is not always the case as you can sometimes find establishments like these in a city as well. Being in the countryside certainly is an advantage though because of the natural beauty. You do in fact want to have some plant life or possibly allow some animals in as well. Having a natural setting helps people feel relaxed and can keep them coming back.
Some country pubs actually cost more than similar restaurants as well. They do this by having expertly crafted outdoor furniture and other items. They also use the finest ingredients from the nearby countryside. This style is actually extremely popular in France as well as England. People come from all over the world to sample the food from places such as this and they also draw attention from the media.
How to set all this up is something you have to decide. You may decide to go with cheap but delicious ingredients and try to create a place that people want to visit every day of their lives. Or you may go with the previously mentioned super-organic ingredients and raise your prices accordingly to match the sheer quality. Be sure to put your best effort into whichever one you decide to go with.
