The Espy, Edinburgh

George Nicolson were pleased to be awarded the external decoration works to Esplanade, also known as The Espy, Edinburgh.

Works encompassed the preparation and decoration of the externals walls, windows, mouldings, doors and facings. Works were executed off a mobile tower, following receipt of a local authority permit, to reach the high levels areas whilst The Espy continued to trade throughout the entirety of the project.

One of our skilled sub-contractors,  Hallbar Ltd who are based in Carluke, built numerous impressive large planters and planter barriers for the outside of the premises as requested by the client. In addition, we were also asked by the client to supply and fit 3 new bin stores as pictured across to the right.

The end result has been warmly welcomed by the client, staff and the public.

This gastropub is based at Bath Street and looks over the sands of Portobello, across the seas of the Firth of Forth to the Kingdom of Fife. The Espy, Edinburgh is situated only three miles to the east of the City Centre. Historically a town in its own right, Portobello is a charming seaside suburb, with two miles of sand making it perfect for swimming and sunbathing, whenever the weather permits it of course. The Seaside Award-winning beach continues to draw large crowds in the good weather.  For more information, simply click on the following link:

The welcoming atmosphere, together with its beachside location, attracts an increasing number and mixture of locals, dog walkers and tourists alike. The Espy has a good range of beers and real ale on offer as well as wine, special cocktails and alcoholic milkshakes for adults. It does well in offering a little something for everyone.
