Traditional shop blinds have been made by Deans since John Dean started the business back in 1894 and these traditional shop blinds at Gee’s Restaurant in Oxford are manufactured in fundamentally the same way they were all those years ago. Traditional shop blinds have been a feature on our high streets during three centuries now and they still fulfil the needs of shops and restaurants alike.
Providing shade in sunny weather and shelter when things are not going so well on the weather front our traditional shop blinds are robust pieces of high street furniture which are as practical as they are attractive. These bright awnings at Gee’s in their fresh lemon shade have been decorated in the distinctive logo of the restaurant and fit perfectly to the light and airy ambiance created by the conservatory style location.
We haven’t established the story behind the name of Gee’s Restaurant but can confirm it is not a tribute the recent victory by the Welshman Geraint “G” Thomas in the recent Criterium du Dauphine – No excuses for squeezing this splendid news in! Gee’s is located on the Banbury Road in the Northern suburbs of Oxford and offers diners a Mediterranean dining experience within the surroundings of a unique Victorian Glasshouse. The dining area is a light-filled conservatory amidst olive trees and plants and you can select from a daily developing seasonal menu inspired by the regional dishes of Spain and Italy, which are prepared on the wood fire oven or over a charcoal grill.
The site was originally a greengrocer and florist having been constructed in 1898 and is now a Grade II listed Victorian conservatory hosting one of Oxfords best loved neighbourhood restaurants. The restaurant is open for the whole day for everything from healthy breakfasts, mid morning coffee, tasty lunches right through to romantic evening meals. Definitely worth a visit next time you are in Oxford.
