Deans pub awning, The Fox, London EC2
The Deans Victorian shop blind, as seen here at the popular The Fox Public House in Shoreditch, has been manufactured by us in much the same way since the company was founded in 1894. Using the very same pattern castings and manufacturing methods, unchanged by time, the Deans Victorian shop blind is not just a replica, it is “the real thing”. Constructed from Environmentally harvested hard woods, the Deans Victorian shop blind meets the demands of the most exacting requirements of a designer wanting authenticity, or of a town planning department determined to keep their commercial environment safe from the march of unacceptable modernity.
The examples shown here at The Fox are typical of work we have carried out on similar bars and pubs in that they also demonstrate how, with the use of our unique RAGS® branding process, appropriate graphics have been neatly applied to the valances. This lettering has been created in a traditional style of script in keeping with the hostelry and its surrounding architecture.
Located in Paul Street Shoreditch, The Fox is a traditional East End corner pub famous for its craft beer bottle shop feel, pop-up food residency and extensive range of beers and London gin.
The pub is spread over three floors to include a first floor function room with a second bar, outdoor roof terrace that are available for private hire, as well as a third floor ‘Den’ which is perfect for meetings, presentations or private dining for up to 12 guests, when regulations permit.
Shoreditch is an fashionable area adjacent to the equally hip neighbourhood of Hoxton. Young creatives and trendsetters fill the fashionable clubs and bars that surround Shoreditch High Street. But it wasn’t always so and, post war, the area was one of waste and dereliction as a result of the blitz on the docklands and surrounding areas of East London. Then, as many children will know, the Bells of Shoreditch feature prominently in the cynical and slightly subversive Oranges and Lemons song centred around the unforgiving nature of life in seventeenth century London.
