Award-winning interior design company, Newman Gauge, has revealed its latest trio of projects. The Langton Arms, part of the Little Britain Pub Company, has launched a new gastro-pub to add to its portfolio. The Church, headed up by Carl Finn, has undergone a hotly anticipated refurbishment whilst an exciting new brand has joined the dining circuit, Holy Moly.
Inspired by verdant Victorian Gardens, The Langton Arms’ daylight-filled scheme brings the outside in, presenting a botanical atmosphere with a strong sense of character. Serving gastro-pub style food, the 110-cover pub is home to an additional function room and is the 5th pub for the Little Britain Pub Company.
Holy Moly is the first ‘mac and cheese’ eatery in the second city. Inspired by New York’s Harlem – in homage to the place the founders re-discovered their love for mac and cheese whilst exploring the city in 2012 – the interior is a clash of raw materials, juxtaposing American diner elements with brash neon, gold chains and tenement steps. The 60-cover restaurant in train station and retail hub, Grand Central opened in July.
The Church has been attracting a loyal party set since it opened in 2012. Owner Carl Finn returned to Newman Gauge for its recent refurbishment, which takes in the addition of a new pizza oven and artisanal sourdough pizza menu, and a new-look roof terrace which seats 45 people. Newman Gauge utilised a mix of reclaimed and hand-crafted furnishings to reflect the pub’s position in the heart of the Jewellery Quarter.
Sam Stokoe, Director at Newman Gauge, said, “We’ve been designing inspiring commercial interiors in the hotel, leisure, restaurant and hospitality sectors for the last two decades. We’re really proud to add these projects to our portfolio, particularly as they saw us welcoming Carl Finn from The Church and The Little Britain Pub Company back to Newman Gauge, whilst starting a new relationship with Holy Moly as the concept launches. It’s a really exciting time for all three businesses, and we wish them the best of luck.”
