LED Eco Lights have announced that its Bright Goods LED filament lamps have been installed throughout the newly refurbished and prestigious Oxford Blue gastropub in Windsor, to create a traditional atmosphere with efficient lighting technology.

The Oxford Blue, located on the edge of Windsor Great Park in Berkshire is housed in two former game keeper’s cottages dating back to the 1800s and was acquired in 2015 by Steven Ellis, former chef at three-Michelin-starred Restaurant Gordon Ramsey. After a lengthy refurbishment, the pub opened its doors on New Year’s Eve and boasts a 44-cover venue with a wine attic for private dining, a 14-seat lounge for drinks and a 16-cover outside dining area.

Fettle Design was commissioned to create an interior that combined the historical elements of the building with modern efficient lighting technology. Fettle specified Bright Goods LED filament lamps: Catherine (6W sepia tinted GLS), Jane (6W sepia tinted pear-shape) and Elizabeth (3W clear candle). They were installed throughout the premises in the restaurant, bar, wine attic, hallway, WC’s and outside dining area. Each lamp boasts an impressive 100Lm/W efficiency.

Andy Goodwin of Fettle Design said, “Bright Goods LED lamps have that element of traditional about them which was key to the overall concept we had for the restaurant. They were perfect for this setting, emitting a warm white colour temperature that replicates the nostalgia of the early Edison incandescent models. Trying to play on the heritage of the building, we wanted the lighting in the restaurant space to be fully dimmable to keep the atmosphere as intimate and enticing as possible.”

Steven Ellis said, “We had a vision of creating an exceptional dining experience in the comfort of a traditional country-style gastropub and wanted to make it as authentic as possible. We have created an atmosphere that looked like it had been there for hundreds of years rather than just created by us. The appearance of the Bright Goods LED lamps are exactly right for our concept and furthermore, offers energy efficiency and low maintenance.”
