Why Install an Awning at Your Pub or Restaurant?

Why Install an Awning at Your Pub or Restaurant?

If you own a pub or restaurant and are interested in increasing your outdoor capacity with new facilities, you may want to consider investing in an awning. More than just a stunning statement piece, awnings function as a shelter to create a comfortable outdoor area that can be enjoyed in all weather. And with the COVID-19 pandemic sparking demand for outdoor dining, there’s never been a more suitable time to invest in your outdoor area.

Restaurant awnings

Discover how an awning can enhance your pub or restaurant. In this article, we take a look at the various benefits a luxury awning will provide.

COVID-19 and ‘the new normal’

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way we socialise. Of the times where we can meet in person, most socialising occurs outdoors. And though the end appears to be somewhat in sight, it remains hard to imagine returning to some of our pre-pandemic customs. Many people, for example, are expected to continue seeking outdoor space when it comes to eating and drinking. 

By investing in an outdoor seating area, you’ll be inviting customers to return to a restaurant/pub without having to dine inside if they don’t feel comfortable. This is a great way to make customers feel included and increase the amount of business you receive.

An awning is the perfect way to facilitate a new outdoor seating area. Awnings provide protection from rain or sun while still maintaining an open, airy feeling that reduces the chance of the virus spreading. 


Irrespective of COVID, there are many reasons to install an awning at your pub or restaurant. One of the most prominent benefits is its aesthetic appeal.

Luxury awnings are made of high-quality materials and are a stylish addition to any establishment. The splendour of the awning will elevate the overall appearance of your premises and provide an elegant environment for customers to relax in. Plus, dimmable LEDs are available to control the ambience. You can gently dim the lights once the sun is down so customers can dine under the moonlight.

Sun protection

Bouts of sunshine are rare in the UK, but when it does happen it’s important to be protected. Not only will an awning provide shade to your customers during sunny days so that they can dine in comfort, but the awning will also protect them from harmful UV rays.

Rain cover

While the sunshine may be rare, the rain is all too common. However, with a luxury awning, customers can continue to dine outside, fully protected from the rain. This enables you to serve more customers in adverse weather, bringing more revenue to the business. 

Luxury awnings can bring added revenue to your business, and should therefore be seen as an investment. If you’re interested in improving your outdoor facilities, consider an awning from Outershade.
