Yu Copster Green by Gordon Ramsey

We were approached by Gordon Ramsay’s Best Chinese Restaurant in the UK, Yu Copster Green, to assist them in launching a new Modern Chinese and Cantonese daytime food and drink offering. Yu Copster Green had land with an unusual shape and size in a disused corner of their site for the project. Nonetheless, after the initial site visit and in-depth consultation, the client worked closely with our Sales & Design teams, to create ‘Teepee On The Green’. 

Tipi restaurant structure

‘Teepee on the Green’ consisted of one Big Hat, linked to a Little Hat and XL Catering Tent installed on a raised wooden platform, complete with a Bespoke Enhancement Kit D and Entrance Porch

For the main dining space, the Big Hat tipi took centre stage where inside, our client chose to seat 60-70 diners, allowing plenty of space for service to pass between the tables. Additionally, we adapted Enhancement Kit D, shifting the entrance around one bay and leaving two giant panoramic windows that can be rolled up during hot summer days.

To overcome the challenges posed by the uneven ground, we implemented an elevation package in conjunction with a raised wooden platform, resulting in a visually striking, level, and weatherproof outdoor restaurant. 

Enhancing the entrance, we incorporated two bays of entrance tunnels and a wheelchair access ramp, creating a grand and impressive entryway into the space.

Additionally, we connected a Little Hat to the Big Hat, forming an external covered drinks terrace where guests can leisurely indulge in pre or post-meal drinks. 

Our giant 6mx6m catering tent was installed next to the tipi formation, to create an outdoor kitchen specifically designed for the new venture. The walls and roof of which were made from beige PVC so that our client could wash down the space easily at the end of each service. Inside the tipi, entry into the kitchen was accessed via an entrance porch linked to the catering tent, with close-shut wooden doors, to hide the hustle and bustle of the kitchen activities.

'Teepee on the Green’

Stepping inside ‘Teepee on the Green’, guests are treated to a menu that beautifully blends the beloved Charlie Yu classics with a curated selection of Victor Yu’s innovative dishes. The result is a captivating dining experience that celebrates the rich traditions of Chinese cooking while embracing the excitement of new flavours and culinary flair.

Yu Copster Green is renowned for providing a top-quality premium offering to all of their customers within their main restaurant. So they wanted to continue offering a world-class dining experience within their tipis. Working closely with an interior designer, they installed luxury leather booth seating, an impressive central lighting feature, a giant tree and faux foliage attached to the purlin beams and lifter poles. The end result was a beautiful structure that seamlessly blended the outdoors in, whilst simultaneously creating a highly functional restaurant.
