  2. Versital Marble Bar Tops Commissioned For New Whitbread Concept Cookhouse & Pub

    Leave a Comment

    Versital is thrilled to have been commissioned by interior designers JMDA Ltd to provide bespoke bar tops and kitchen pass tops for their latest project with hospitality giant Whitbread. Cookhouse & Pub located in Oldbury, West Midlands, is the newest concept venue by the company and features Versital’s on-trend ‘Arabesque’ marble finish surfaces.

    New Informal Dining Experience for Whitbread

    Described by Whitbread as ‘an informal, all day restaurant, with the relaxed vibe and affordability of a pub’ the new space is now a striking new eatery that has replaced the previous site. Speaking of the renovation, Simon Tyas, director of JMDA said

    ‘Much of the original interior was stripped out. The kitchen and back of house areas were retained in the same location, but the kitchen was converted into a theatre-style, extending into the restaurant and including a bistro oven, so diners can see their food being prepared.’

    Made to Order Bar Tops

    Versital’s made-to-order surfaces were commissioned for the bar tops and kitchen pass tops in a luxurious white marble finish. The handcrafted surfaces bring a fresh and modern feel to the space, effortlessly complementing the contemporary colour palette of teal, mushroom and off white. Punctuated with pops of ochre yellow and showcasing wooden and copper accents, the new restaurant displays industrial elements throughout for an informal yet sophisticated dining experience.

    Cultured marble – Water Proof and Stain Proof

    Versital’s solid marble surfaces offer all the beauty of natural marble without the issues the natural product often brings – a totally unique product and the most realistic faux marble on the market. The true-to-life marble is 100% waterproof, non-porous and stain proof making it a preferred choice for bars and restaurants alike. Boasting an impressive range of over 100 exclusive finishes, Versital caters for all interior styles whether domestic or commercial.
