Website design for 'a proper pub'

Nestled in the beautiful village of Slingsby near Helmsley, Malton and York, The Grapes Inn is an authentic spot to cosy up by the fire or enjoy the sunshine. 

The challenge

The owner wanted a new website to reflect the quirk, charm and quality interiors of the pub. The design had to inspire, and provide the feeling of ‘home’ to its customer base.


  • Develop a new responsive website suitable for mobile phones
  • Provide fresh photography of interiors and exteriors
  • Showcase a feeling of ‘home’ and ‘a proper pub’
  • Host the website and provide updates going forward


We met with Catherine Spooner, owner of The Grapes Inn, on numerous occasions in order to bring the new website to life.

With the photography skills of Olivia Brabbs at our disposal we were sure to create some fantastic imagery for the site, all of which fit perfectly into place when creating concepts for the new website.
