Drupal Restaurant Website
62 The Bank
The AA's Hotel Group of the year Brend Hotels asked us to design them a bespoke CMS website for their popular North Devon restaurant 62 The Bank. The restaurant previously featured on the main Brend Hotels group website, but it was decided that a standalone site would provide greater exposure and give us the freedom to design a website more in keeping with the restaurants own identity and branding.
Having worked with the client for several years, our designers and web developers had already built a strong working relationship with the Brend's own in-house marketing team, so we were able to quickly and efficiently identify their requirements and design and develop a new website which ticked all of their boxes.
Key requirements were to showcase the vibrant atmosphere, unique surroundings and stunning dishes on offer at the restaurant and to develop a CMS that their management team could easily use to update the site themselves. With this in mind, photography was a key element of the site so our design evolved around a full-width banner showcasing their professional photography and utilising the vibrant purple and black colour palette used throughout the restaurant's menus and marketing materials.
An easy to use Drupal Content Management System was developed, allowing the restaurant access to update all areas of the site, from page content to menus and banners.
We integrated ResDiary the restaurants booking system so that bookings could be made directly via the website which has helped increase covers, and like all of our website designs, it's mobile-friendly, ensuring the site looks great whichever device it's being viewed on.
