The Master Mariner is one of Brighton’s best loved pubs, and locals and tourists alike were devastated when it suffered a major fire. However, the owners of the pub were determined that the Mariner would rise like a phoenix from the flames. After the structural work was done, our Brighton floor restoration team was tasked with repairing the floors. The majority of the floor was damaged beyond repair, so this was a particularly challenging task.
We laid an almost completely new floor, but one that was in keeping with the character of the old one. We used the few surviving remnants of the old floor to create a new floor with exactly the same look as before. We then coated it with an extra tough protective lacquer to deal with the extremely high foot fall in this very busy pub.
