Reclaimed Yorkstone Floor laid in pub, The Dressers Arms, dating back to the 1700s

We specialise in the supply of  bespoke Reclaimed Yorkstone floors and were excited to be working with a well-loved local pub.  Flagstones were supplied in a mixture of buff and grey colours.  The Yorkstone floor was coursed to plan eliminating the need for wastage.  Course widths started at 12” wide and went up to 36” wide.  Prior to supply each flagstone was calibrated to a uniform thickness of 35mm and specially cleaned for interior use.  Once laid a sealer was applied to protect and enhance the stone.  There are lots of different types of stone sealers available for sale, here ‘Nexus pro-410‘ solvent based colour enhancing sealer was used.

Following the recent sale of the pub to Jack, owner of the adjacent Chinese restaurant ‘Little Hong Kong’, the pub underwent some renovation work.  The bar area was extended and we were asked to supply some extra stone flags.  We often don’t get the chance to see finished floors so it was great to view the stone after a years’ worth of foot traffic and beer swill.  The pub has a great selection of real ales and we highly recommend the famous Dresser’s Steak Pudding!

We also had the opportunity to take some photos of the Reclaimed Oak Beams which we had supplied a year earlier.  The Beams were cleaned and hand finished in beeswax.  Here they are in our yard prior to being delivered
