Angus Steakhouse / Mermaid’s Tail


Restaurant Parasols Installation in London

The Brief

With people watching one of Leicester Square’s great attractions, the area’s newest fish and chip restaurant, The Mermaid’s Tail, and the popular Aberdeen Angus Steakhouse wanted to upgrade their outdoor facilities to ensure that customers enjoyed the very best in ‘alfresco’ dining.

The Broadview Solution

To introduce a continental-style dining area for people to relax and enjoy a drink and a bite to eat, Broadview worked with a key trade account, HG Imports. Working in partnership, the companies designed, manufactured and installed three large-span parasols at The Mermaid’s Tail and six large-span parasols at the Aberdeen Angus Steakhouse that would complement the interior of each restaurant.

Each parasol is four metres by four metres in dimension and they were constructed with aluminium masts, stainless steel fittings and winder systems for easy operation. The parasols are branded to complement each restaurant and are produced from VALMEX® AIRTEX®, a high water and UV resistant fabric which guarantees an excellent long-term appearance. The low weight and high tear strength are also outstanding features of this fabric.

Our umbrellas and parasols are unrivalled when it comes to durability and design. Improve the visibility and appeal of your restaurant's outdoor seating area today - contact our shading experts on 01202 679 012.

The Result

The addition of parasols has successfully extended the seating areas of both restaurants, with The Mermaid’s Tail accommodating a further 48 customers and the Aberdeen Angus Steakhouse accommodating an extra 92 customers outside. This has boosted the restaurants' incoming revenue dramatically, as they are able to accommodate more customers than ever before. 

With the pedestrian Square bustling with street entertainment and visitors, both restaurants make the most of their branded outdoor seating area to attract the attention of the many passers by and stand out from the competition.

We can also offer integrated outdoor heaters and LED lighting options with our commercial umbrellas and parasols, so your customers continue to use your outdoor seating area well into the evening. Don't hesitate to contact Broadview today to discuss your requirements on 01202 679 012.


“The eye-catching parasols have created a modern, unique and attractive environment. We wanted to create a great restaurant outside as well as inside and visually the new parasols are stunning ­ creating a real ‘wow’ factor. We are finding that more and more customers are looking to enjoy an alfresco experience in the UK like they do abroad and customers can experience this in Leicester Square. We are delighted with the quality, care and attention to detail, taken within manufacture and installation. It’s such a pleasure to conduct business with professional people, who can get it right first time!”
