About The Newhaven Fishmarket – Seafood Restaurant
Hoping to reel in fish-loving foodies and shellfish junkies from across Edinburgh, the new seafood restaurant opened in May 2018 at Newhaven Pier. The new restaurant brings together the fish expertise of two Edinburgh gents who will run the The Fishmarket. Gary Welch, owner of Welch Fishmongers, and Roy Brett, Chef Patron at Ondine in Edinburgh hope to have created the ultimate seafood dining experience. With it’s sophisticated dining area and unspoiled views across the sea the team are hoping to create a truly unique dining experience. A lot of planning has gone into the refurbishment of the old warehouse. The owners wished to recreate a menu board that had both appeal, flexibility for constant change, a modern appeal as well as a hint of heritage from a traditional fish shop. What better then than a readerboard kit from us.
After producing various drawing with live descriptions of what would be on offer on the menu board of the restaurant, we chose a kit form, which can be easily shipped with overnight couriers and installed with just the very basic handy man skills.
This would comprise of our standard lpm tracking for the letters to sit in, which could be easily assembled using cardboard templates to get the 2 tracks each channel would need the correct distance apart.
Finally, the retro style changeable letter size LPm 45 was chosen allowing up to 45 plastic sliding letters per 1 metre. This was decided to be sufficient for their needs.
The Changeable Sign
Roy and his team had three spaces for boards already in position as part of the interior design and layout of the restaurant, measuring a little over 1 metre deep by 1.8 metres in length, creating an impressive back drop to the kitchen bar area. Like all our changeable signs, the key benefit to a system of changeable letters and tracking is flexibility. What may ordinarily be a menu board for anything from food items, to cask ales and coffees can also be a notice or message board for patrons inside or a tweet or post for the world to enjoy. It seems the Newhaven Fish Market have embraced this concept very quickly!!
Letter and Track Kits
We offer a vast array or pre collated bundles of letters and tracking. Click here for further information. When using our letters and self adhesive letter channels, we strongly advice additional gluing is considered due the vast amount of differing surfaces and effects this has on the adhesive strips. You will always receive additional tracks, so have a go first and see the results. A super glue with an immediate bond should be avoided, as offers little chance for re positioning once applied.
