Horse & Plough

Working with Heron & Brearley for a 6th time Rumana Swinton Design was appointed to redesign the interior of The Horse & Plough and create a flagship country style gastro pub with a homely relaxed feel.

Design brief
The interior displays a warm and organic feeling with natural materials and an earthy palette. The main bar area has a more traditional informal look with a log fire and a mixture of vintage leather & tapestry upholstery. Reclaimed Oak Beams uprights were installed to divide the internal seating areas and establish a sense of history within the interior.   Whilst the Conservatory room was completely transformed into a light airy restaurant with wood cladding wrapping around the walls, oak flooring and an array of indoor planting.  An open larder feature was created to display local produce.  The interior reflects the rrestaurants focus on honest, well-sourced food at reasonable prices.
