Edinburgh's sports fans in for a treat at The Pear Tree beer garden

The Pear Tree, Edinburgh

People love spending time outside, even in Scotland's colourful climate.Click here for The Ultimate Guide To Creating Successful Outdoor Dining Spaces In Scotland

The Pear Tree came to us looking to maximise the use of their vast outdoor space. All year-round.

With a huge outdoor screen and fantastic central location, The Pear Tree has long been a firm favourite for sports fans as well as for tourists and locals during Festival season. With outdoor dining areas set to play an even more important role post-covid, it was important to capitalise on all of the space available. Their team's brief was to protect a high percentage of the outside area from rain to ensure comfortable cover for the beer garden in all weathers. Another key requirement was un-interrupted views of their trademark big screen.

We were delighted to be involved in the project and knew our MAY parasols would offer a fantastic solution. Benholm Group are Sole Distributor For May Parasols In Scotland. We coupled them with bespoke mounting sockets to achieve the extra height required to guarantee an uninterrupted view.

We selected the 5m square Schattello Parasol. Covering up to 78m², available in round, rectangular or square shape. Bespoke black fabric and Guinness branding make a statement, adding infrared heating and lighting for maximum customer comfort.

Once the final design had received the go ahead it was time for the team to get going! We dug out the holes, mounted the parasols and concreted securely into place.

The finished result is lots of cover, and The Pear Tree's insta-popular central view is maintained!

We are delighted with the final result which fulfils the brief to a tee.  We hope sports fans enjoy many wins and trophies - come rain or shine. The Pear Tree is set to be as popular as ever when the doors are once again thrown open to welcome their customers.
