Delicious food, warm and welcoming service, and some good old-fashioned hospitality are what Church Road prides itself upon.

The design team at Northern Lights was thrilled to realise the brief of London-based designers, Nelson Design Studio. Nelson Design Studio is a multi-faceted architectural interior design studio specialising in high-end residential, corporate, and hospitality projects throughout the UK and Europe. Oxblood booths, walnut chairs, crisp white table linen, shining cutlery, delicate glassware, and calming marble tones on the walls set the tone at Church Road.


Hanging above the main table in the common room is our coveted Delaunay chandelier. The unique design of our Delaunay chandelier gives this fixture an iconic status in our ever-growing catalogue of bespoke lighting solutions. Geometrical glass prisms cascade vertically to create a stunning effect as light passes through them. Chainlinks suspend the Old English Brass ring to give this contemporary chandelier an industrial edge. This particular version of the chandelier has been modified to contain dusky-pink glass prisms.


Elsewhere, the expertly designed booths are illuminated by our Luca wall lights. These versatile lights work well in all interior schemes but stand out perfectly in this venue due to the contrasting hues introduced by Nelson Design Studio. The brass is finished in a distressed old English brass and completed with a blown opal sphere.
