David Hoare, retail director at Hall & Woodhouse, said: “Constructing this magnificent pub-restaurant is the culmination of a plan to build something truly special. With this location we have really pushed the boundaries to create a destination venue that is completely relevant to its setting. The building has to be seen to fully understand the way it fits within the surrounding maritime landscape.  

“We have used a total of 28 recycled shipping containers to reflect the stunning dock-side location, and there are even three private dining areas that sit within individual containers, which create a truly unique dining experience — our guests can now invite their friends out for dinner in a private shipping container.”
