Fixed triangular canopies are frequently used where there is a need for a dramatic appearance to make a business stand out when situated as part of a sequence of shop fronts in a confined environment. These fixed triangular canopies at the popular Chop House on Butlers Wharf are a case in point. The road behind what was the loading point for one of the great warehouses alongside the Thames is a narrow cobbled lane with strictly governed restrictions in terms of what can overhang the limited space available. The use of the Deans fixed triangular canopy has meant that the fixed triangular canopies have been installed giving a strong presence to the business with bold white graphics on a black background. Our unique Deans fabric mounting system has provided the fixed triangular canopies with a smart, smooth, appearance with none of the raised PVC tapes often seen on other examples this type of system.
The Chop house, along with Le Pont De La Tour, Blue Print Cafe and Cantina Del Ponte further along the marina make up a row of the very finest in London Al Fresco dining all within sight of the iconic Tower Bridge in the background.
Originally a chocolate biscuit factory, Butler’s Wharf was built between 1865-73 as a shipping wharf and warehouse complex, accommodating goods unloaded from ships using the port of London. It contained what was reputedly the largest tea warehouse in the world. During the 20th century, Butler’s Wharf and other warehouses in the area fell into disuse. However, since the 1980s, Butler’s Wharf has been transformed from a derelict site into luxury flats, with restaurants and shops on the ground floor. D&D London owns several of the restaurants, which include the afore mentioned Butler’s Wharf Chop House, Le Pont de la Tour, Cantina del Ponte and Blue print cafe. All customers of Deans Blinds
