Pubs, Bars, Restaurants, Beer Gardens – Creating that outdoor areas.

The re-opening of the hospitality and events sector after Corona virus lock down is likely to see an increase in entertainment and dining in outside areas. The future will be entertainment in a beer garden, marquee or even in your own garden at home. Restaurants and theatres will now be making the use of outside space to maintain social distancing. As theatres and cinemas lie dormant, we have seen an increase in drive in cinemas.

With that in mind how can we at Essential Supplies help you?



We can supply a large range of outside lighting, from small flood lights to fairy lights and from single pendant drops through to full festoon harness runs, and what makes us special – it can all be bespoke made and tailored to suit your venue! Also, we offer FREE advice and free designs to help you come up with some bright ideas! So feel free to give us a call and run some ideas with us – 01752 817 140.


Outdoor Heating

Good heating will mean that people will be happy to stay outdoors for longer periods and later into the evenings as temperatures drops.

Our range of infrared heaters are developed to completely heat an outdoor area and encourage diners to eat outside whatever the weather. They are popular due to their low glare lamps. The system has been specifically designed to suit outdoor restaurant areas and terraces, but can also be fitted to awnings.



You obviously will need to run power outside to run all the above – we offer a range of extension leads and RCDS to ensure your and your customers safety. Our team of experts are on hand to offer advice as to what you need – as with electrics we can’t get it wrong!
