The Black Horse

The Black Horse Bar and Restaurant Website

The Black Horse in Ireland is a family run bar and restaurant, offering delicious food in a friendly environment. They asked to design a fresh new look for their website, one that reflected their attention to detail and their love for their trade. Our first task was to organised a photo shoot, where we took shots of their bar and restaurant interior and , of course, their beautiful food. We then turned to their branding and developed their logo design to make it stronger and more consistent across all their marketing material. Once this was in place we got stared in their website, designing a responsive site where the layout and navigation adapts to any screen size: mobile tablet or desktop.

The clients wanted to be able to update the website themselves. So we built the site in WordPress: a content management system that gives clients the control over editing text, adding new menus, events and images. We also built in other functionality, including a table and accommodation booking form, a review section and an events area. Customers can also view the menus available in the restaurant.

We also produced a website for their sister company, The Birch in Woburn.

Our next step will be to design and code a HTML newsletters that will be sent out to customers, linked to a sign-up button on the websites.
