The Bell & Crown is a historic pub dating back to the 12th century, located in the heart of Salisbury city centre. The newly acquired family-run business boasts two venues – the main pub and restaurant and an upstairs events space and digital darts hall – and needed a new website to promote both spaces.
Integrated booking functionality
The Bell & Crown needed a booking system that allows customers to book a table quickly and easily. Our web development team integrated an industry-favourite, third-party tool from Design by Night into the site. Now, customers can reserve a table in seconds without the Bell & Crown team having to process the booking. The system displays availability clearly and collects customer contact details, making the process easy for both the client and their patrons.
The client requested a bespoke events area to advertise upcoming events being held at their two venues. Like the rest of the site, this area is simple to content manage so that the Bell & Crown team can add new events with ease, and the customer can quickly see all the activities they can take part in.
More than a traditional pub
The design reflects the Bell & Crown’s position as more than a traditional pub. The sleek, professional design presents the pub as a high-end drinking venue whilst maintaining the feel of a welcoming, traditional pub that you can make your regular. The warm, earthy colour palette and image-led site showcases the feel of the pub whilst adding a modern twist.
The custom WordPress site is designed with the user in mind, with multiple navigations and clear calls to action.
A different feel for two venues
The client requested a different feel for their upstairs venue, Arrows Club. This is a self-contained space with a smart-interactive darts experience – the only venue south of London to offer this. The space has its own bar and can be hired out for private events.
To differentiate between these two spaces, the design uses two different colour palettes – gold and brown for the main pub, and green, gold and copper for Arrows.
The integrated booking system makes it easy for customers to book both venues, including a monthly calendar, various mealtimes, time of the day and group size.
