The Quarry Tapas & Bottlery at Horbury, near Wakefield, is named after the former Horbury Quarry where the venue is sited. The imposing 50 ft high quarry walls of the 18th Century workings form the backdrop to this period property.
The Quarry’s latest reincarnation is probably the most impressive yet, with the tired old pub transformed into a modern continental-style eatery. Key to the impressive interior décor, by designer Paul Schofield, is the complete furniture package, sourced from Andy Thornton.
The main tapas restaurant area, which overlooks the open-plan kitchen, mixes high dining with standard height dining tables and features our hugely popular School bar stools and side chairs, combined with Scaffold poseur tables and cast iron Bistro table bases with solid ash tops. The hugely popular fire table feature seats up to 16 guests around a tiled island unit with solid marble top, with a central open fire.
In the bar area, more of our Bistro tables and School chairs fill the dining area and complement the elegant fixed seating. Against the mirror-clad bar counter, sumptuous button-backed Repton bar stools have been upholstered in a sage green distressed leather.
In the private dining room adjacent to the bar, we supplied a bespoke 3-metre long table with solid ash top and Loris side chairs upholstered in nubuck-style faux button-back leather.
Upstairs and totally separate from the restaurant is a stylish marble-floored cocktail bar, where we supplied stainless steel Inox poseur tables with dark-stained Brunswick bar stools. A fully glazed entryway provides access to a private lounge area for select parties, where we supplied tables and faux-leather tube stools.
The Quarry has been receiving rave reviews since opening, particularly by the locals, who say it has been brought back to life. It has certainly provided a great venue on their doorstep, even rivalling many bars and restaurants in the centre of nearby Leeds and Wakefield.
