Cases Study – Swan On The River Littleport


The Client was taking over the public house and restaurant, and wanted a feature within the restaurant, that would also be functional as well. As in the winter the building is quite cold according to the previous owners.

There was an ideal position between two pillars that could incorporate a double sided appliance, there fore blocking off areas of the restaurant, but creating a cosy and welcoming feel.

The original chimney had been blocked off, so to have a fire required a replacement flue to be installed, which was done with a twin wall insulated metal flue system going up internally within the property, and termination through the roof.


The appliance specified the M-Design Venus Green Plus 850D whilst offering generous heat to the room it is situated in, also had the facility for ducting hot air to other areas, and it was decided to duct some of the heat generated into the upstairs space, supplementing the heat already in situ.

If you would want to go and see this appliance working whilst enjoying the atmosphere next to the river. The Swan on the River is idyllically situated on the banks of the River Great Ouse at Littleport, just north of the famous cathedral city of Ely. It is easily reached from the A10 by taking the turning for Queen Adelaide just past Littleport
