Major Clients pick up prestigious awards at recent awards ceremonies

2 of our major clients - Jamie's Italian and JD Wetherspoon have won prestigious awards at recent events.

The independent UK and International Restaurant and Design Awards is currently in its 5th year and is becoming bigger and better. With the hospitality industry booming, competition is tough with entries coming in from Manchester, Bath, and Glasgow to Australia, Italy, China and Norway.

One of the categories is Restaurant or Bar in a Transport Space, whether that be a train station or airport. 11 entries came in from Heathrow Airport, Gatwick Airport, King’s Cross and many more. Some of the top restaurants included Graze, YO! Sushi and Wm Beardmore & Co but the winner was of course…

The designer and Warings Furniture Ltd worked together to create the best restaurant in a transport space which features our galvanised Phobos range in an industrial retro feel area.

We think it looks great! Well done Jamie’s Italian!


  JD Wetherspoon has also picked up an award at the Airport Food and Beverage Awards which was held this year in Dubai.

The Red Lion pub, located at Gatwick Airport has been named the best Worldwide Airport Bar which is an incredible achievement for JDW. The Red Lion was originally opened on the site since 1995 but has recently seen a refurbishment to uncover a contemporary, industrial touch to keep up with the changing trends.
