Ye Old Anchor Inn, Largs

CarpetworksUK Ltd was delighted to have been chosen by Niven Paterson as the installer of his new Axminster carpet. Having looked at various designs, Niven stayed with his first choice of “Turkey Red” 9 Row Axminster and even our carpet fitters agreed that this old traditional design matched the interior of the oldest pub in Largs perfectly. The Turkey carpet is made with a rouge colour to highlight it’s many features, with the stylish mixture of bold Red with Blue and Green badges supply unique patterns throughout – so should keep all football team supporters happy.

To keep disruption to a minimum, our fitters arrived in Largs before 6am and there met Niven and his team who had worked all night stripping out the old floor coverings and emptying the bar of furniture. This gave our fitting team a chance to install the new carpeting and safety vinyl and allow Niven to re-open in the afternoon. CarpetworksUK installed new carpet traditionally using gripper and contract hair underlay. New matting was supplied and fitted to both entrance areas with new metal trims surrounding matting and to the front of bar spillage. Gradus nosings were supplied in White to highlight each edge of the stair.

Polysafe slip resistant sheet vinyl was supplied and installed to the rear of the bar and the two ladies cubicles. All vinyl was sealed at the perimeter and all seams were hot welded.

Nominated for the “Best Pub in Scotland” in 2012, Ye Old Anchor Inn made it to the last four in the competition.

This Inn is the oldest pub in Largs, opened in 1790 it is celebrating it’s 225th birthday this year.

“I have dealt with Alastair for many years, the last 6 years at the USSA, but long before that when I worked in the hotel industry going back to 2001 at the Sheraton Hotel in Edinburgh and into the 90’s when his father ran the business and I worked in the Glasgow Marriott. I would have no hesitation in recommending his new company – CarpetworksUK Ltd to prospective users.”
