The Maltsters Country Inn, in Badby, Daventry, was in a state of disrepair when Merlin Griffiths, bartender and owner of Greenhouse Pubs, took it over earlier this year.
To help with the restoration project, he turned to Sadolin PV67 Heavy Duty Varnish and Sadolin Superdec .
Merlin, said: “I was recommended Sadolin PV67 by a flooring expert.
“When we were creating a boat deck finish on the floor in the Kilburn pub, he told me that I should use the product on my bar top too.
“The flooring expert said that he had used it in a famous gallery and I thought that was a pretty good recommendation and he was right.
“I’ve used it here on the bar top at The Maltsters and it’s dried crystal clear and rock hard, which is excellent.”
Available in either a gloss or satin finish, Sadolin PV67 Heavy Duty Varnish comes as a two-pack system .Of particular appeal to the leisure and hospitality industry is its resistance to chemicals, enabling the product to cope with alcohol and soft drinks’ spills.
The hard-wearing formulation is also slip and scratch resistant and, as well as bar tops, it can be used for heavy traffic floor areas such as dance floors and hallways.
Along with Sadolin PV67, Merlin used another product from the Sadolin range to give long-lasting protection to the windows of the 17th century building.
Sadolin Superdec’s water-borne formulation offers a highly durable, opaque finish which erodes naturally by weathering, ensuring the coating remains flexible and resists cracking, peeling and flaking.
