Derby’s most popular riverside restaurant receives ‘perfect terrace’ thanks to Derbyshire business
Hospitality products from Derbyshire based In Your Corner have created the perfect terrace for Derby’s most talked-about riverside restaurant, Darleys.
The multi award-winning restaurant opened earlier this month (SEPT) after a complete interior redesign, installation of a new 50-seater outdoor terrace and revamp of the original, famous waterfront dining area.
As part of the major restaurant project, which sits inside a 200-year-old former mill, hospitality and event solutions company, In Your Corner, based in Stanley Village, supplied a range of bespoke products as part of the post lockdown renovation.
A total of 32 designer, all-weather, wipeable and stackable chairs now take pride of place at Darley’s new outdoor terrace – which is now co-owned by Rob Ellis and Lee Bebbington.
To finish the look at Darleys, eight hardwearing and weatherproofed dining tables were also delivered to the newly-created terrace enabling Derby diners to have the perfect space to meet friends and family. These were sourced from some of Europe’s finest furniture designers.
Richard Sleigh, managing director of In Your Corner whose clients include Ascot Racecourse, Veuve Clicquot, Morley Hayes, Royal Academy of Arts and celebrity chef Cyrus Todiwala, said: “Outdoor hospitality has never been more important to venues since Covid.
“This outdoor area at Darleys provides a stunning, safe environment for customers and we are delighted to do our bit to help hospitality businesses get back on their feet and encourage people to venture out, enjoying themselves in a safe environment.
“The Darleys terrace has been designed to allow at least a two metre distance between tables and we worked very hard to select and design the right furniture.
“Anyone who knows anything about Darleys will be delighted to see what we’ve done to help create an upmarket, patio dining experience.”
To define the new outdoor seating area at Darleys, In Your Corner also designed and installed terrace screens to create a more intimate atmosphere for guests, which provides protection from the wind and rain.
These frame the stunning riverside view and allow Darleys to entertain guests outside, all year round – bringing in crucial revenue as well as providing diners with a safe, sheltered area to enjoy cocktails and canapes on the outdoor terrace!
Richard said: “Extending the dining space by working on the outdoor area was key to Darleys and we knew we could give it exactly what was needed.
“Darleys Restaurant has a great reputation in the Derby and surrounding area and, while we battle with the coronavirus and social distancing regulations, customers can now enjoy this outdoor space and sample the delights Darleys has to offer.”
To complete the Derby project and to add the finishing touches to an already multi award-winning establishment, two beautifully-designed parasols were delivered to the terrace and reflect the stunning interior design of the restaurant.
Two of In Your Corner’s 4x4 metre wide parasols now provide shade from the sun and cover from the rain. We have supplied the best value, premium quality collection of parasols which are perfect for the prestigious site.
Darleys co-owner, Lee Bebbington, said: “We opened in September and it has been fantastic.
“The new terrace looks amazing and guests love it.
“In addition to the waterfront terrace at the back of the restaurant, we now have the superb front terrace where we will be serving breakfasts, lunches and drinks.
“Richard and the team at In Your Corner helped us so much to design, produce and install our new-look area. We are very pleased with it.
“The Covid-19 lockdown enabled us to work on the internal refurbishment and design the new-look restaurant. We couldn’t wait to open in September.
“Revenue is already up substantially, the customer feedback is great and long may it continue.”
