Near Newport, South Wales
The Rib Smokehouse & Grill is a sophisticated steakhouse experience, located in Coldra Court Hotel, part of the Celtic Manor Collection, near Newport, South Wales, with dining furniture by Andy Thornton. Only minutes from the 5-star Celtic Manor Resort Hotel, with its world-class championship course, the hotel also features its own health club, pool and gym.
The Rib used over 100 of the hugely popular Healey side chairs from the Andy Thornton Vintage Furniture range. These comfortable dining chairs feature unique tapered steel legs and distressed ribbed leather seats and backs, which work really well with the timber flooring and textured stone walls.
We also supplied a large quantity of 700 mm square character oak table tops to go on the client’s existing cast iron table bases. The tables are extremely versatile, they seat 2 comfortably on their own, can be butted together to create larger place settings and work really well alongside the fixed banquette seating.
The southern-inspired smokehouse restaurant, with its stylish furnishings and mouth-watering aromas escaping the hickory wood-fired ovens, has proven to be an extremely popular dining destination with both the hotel’s guests and regular local customers.
