Heating Alfresco Restaurant in London

"Fantastic difference to my clientele in their warmth and enjoyment outdoors"

Cosy outdoor heating for alfresco dining


La Poule au Pot is a charming French restaurant in Belgravia, London, with seating for for both interior and alfresco dining. The restaurant proprietors were seeking an alfresco heating solution to enable more people to dine outdoors during the colder season, especially given the increased levels of outdoor socialising prevalent throughout 2020.

La Poule au Pot has been voted ‘best for romance’ in the whole of London within Hardens guide for several years in succession given its popular French menu and ambience.


Herschel Manhattan infrared heaters have been wall-mounted above the outdoor dining tables, providing powerful and cosy warmth for diners from the pleasing, low glare overhead solution.  The 3kW Manhattan heaters are controlled using the remote controls, with two variable power levels, enabling flexible control dependent on outdoor temperatures and warmth required.  The proprietors of La Poule au Pot have also purchased Manhattan heaters for a subsequent restaurant to improve the alfresco experience for clientele in colder periods.

“Thanks for the heaters. They look and feel extremely cosy and have made a fantastic difference to my clientele in their warmth and enjoyment outdoors. I have no hesitation in recommending these low glare, powerful Herschel heaters and have already purchased for a second site”. Tim, La Poule au Pot.
