Hall & Woodhouse is a dramatically contemporary pub and restaurant on the quayside of Portishead Marina, designed to be highly sustainable and built in 2 phases, with 3 storeys of hotel rooms to be added above the pub and restaurant at a later date once these operations are properly established.

 

The pub and restaurant comprise a 2 storey, fully glazed concrete framed structure, flanked with 28 recycled shipping containers that accommodate the private dining and meeting rooms, toilets, staff accommodation and Marina facilities. The containers also suit the cellular nature of the future hotel rooms above, are highly appropriate to the marine location and form a strong visual link with the Dock’s industrial past. Awarded “Pub Design of the Year 2013” in the annual CAMRA and English Heritage awards in the “new build” category; the 1st year since 2006 that they have found a newly built pub worthy of the award.
