A new designed garden complete with outdoor kitchen has opened at the Queens Hotel in Southsea. A new garden menu and extensive drinks list have been devised to make the most of the garden space and enjoy some al-fresco dining.
Designer Lorien Loten from Southsea’s Garden Angel was commissioned to work her magic on the grounds. Her design has seen the creation of 15 garden areas with Mediterranean style planting, where you and your friends can unwind and enjoy special times. When it came to creating the perfect entrance to the re-styled garden, the Queens Hotel commissioned Peter Clutterbuck’s Design Blacksmiths from Southsea to make their set of gates.
General Manager Paul Playford, said:
“We have made a major investment in our garden as part of the overall rejuvenation of the Queens Hotel and we are looking forward to welcoming people to enjoy the space throughout the summer. There’s nothing nicer than being able to relax in the sunshine on our comfortable garden sofas, sipping a drink and sampling our delicious garden menu,”
Garden designer Lorien, said:
“We are so lucky to have Peter and the team on our doorstep and when it came to creating an eye-catching set of gates for the garden, they were number one on our list. They were able to interpret exactly what we wanted and turn the drawings into a reality,”
The gate was fashioned by hand from mild steel and it took a month to complete the construction.
“Being so close to the Queens Hotel, it was nice to be able to create the gates for the garden. It’s such a lovely design by Nigel Searle and we really enjoy working on projects like this,” said John Duffield, who worked on the gates with Patrick Mannerings.
