The Oxford Wine Café, a popular licensed café in one of the UK’s most historic university cities, has opted for completely modern interior finishes – including replacing outdated wooden and laminate surfaces in the serving area with a one-piece sink and work-surface, plus other fabrications from specialist supplier GEC Anderson.
The café contacted GEC Anderson and a survey was promptly carried out: the resulting bespoke, high specification stainless steel unit, featuring two integral cupboards matching the lines of the faceted counter, was duly fitted by PlumbedWright from nearby Wantage.
The Administrator for The Oxford Wine Café, Mimi, commented: “The business opened in 2015 and has proved very popular with a variety of clients having space for up to 120 people, attracted by the fine wine and tapas style food. Because of the issue we had with the layout of the bar area and the work involved in repeatedly having to clean the wooden surfaces down with bleach, I Googled kitchen designers in the Oxford area, looking for a local supplier to cut down on survey costs, and soon realised there was nothing ‘standard’ available which would fit the space.”
“Having looked at the reviews on line, I sent an email through the contact page on the GEC website and heard back within 48 hours from the company’s surveyor for the area and he visited the following week. Thanks to his clever laser measurement device, we had a quote and drawings back within a couple of days so we gave the go-ahead. Our regular plumbing contractor, PlumbedWright, undertook the installation, starting before our normal opening time one morning and it was all completed just after midday. It has all been a great success.”
