The new Broadsands Bistro

It was an iconic building for many, situated right on the promenade at Broadsands Beach in Paignton, but it was time to give it a modern look.

  • Demolition of the old fibre glass roofing panels, canopy and concrete pillars
  • Creating new concrete steps for the entrance, and new ramp to the terrace.
  • New windows and shutters
  • Rendering to all external areas and plastering internally
  • Remodelling the kitchen and toilet areas
  • Creating a new, light, bright and airy bistro

As project managers, South Hams Building Company co-ordinated all works to bring this project in on time, and within budget.

Boyd Rogers: “This project has been a challenge – demolition works were tough as the building really didn’t want to give in. It was certainly built to withstand the weather and the tides!. But having said that, it has all gone incredibly smoothly. All trades were right behind this project from day one and the guidance and direction from the management team at the Bistro created a great atmosphere to work in. Thanks Rob and Joan for letting us have a part to play in the future of Broadsands Beach.”

Broadsands is a beautiful part of the South Devon coastline and for years the striking blue zig zag roof has dominated the promenade.  Now, there is a modern, sleek and welcoming building, with a terrace to sit out in the sun where you can enjoy the views across the bay, and a bright, airy bistro to sit inside on the chillier days.
