La Tasca Chain Renovation
La Tasta


At Martin Allen Flooring and French Polishing, our craftsmanship is deeply rooted in traditional techniques, enhanced by diverse styles and skills. A stellar example of our expertise is the extensive refurbishment project for the La Tasca chain of Spanish tapas restaurants, which took Martin Allen and his team across the UK—from London, Sheffield, and York to Edinburgh, Glasgow, and Aberdeen. This ambitious wood floor renovation project saw us revamp 43 restaurants, showcasing our dedication to quality and detail.

Comprehensive Wood Floor Renovation Across 43 La Tasca Locations

Each refurbishment project commenced on a Sunday evening. After a brief rest, our team was on-site, working tirelessly all day Monday and Tuesday to meet the tight Wednesday handover deadlines. These long hours were necessary to overcome each restaurant’s unique challenges and turn La Tasca’s vision into a polished reality.

Transformative Techniques and Superior Materials

Collaborating with other trades, we primarily worked with very dark wood. Our process involved meticulously sanding off the dated, dark finishes and refinishing each wood board to a natural effect using Junckers’ hard-wearing, high-performance lacquer. In addition to the floors, we stripped and repolished the wooden bar tops with an A/C lacquer, ensuring a seamless and durable finish.

In several locations, we took the renovation a step further by laying new oak wood floors, completely transforming the appearance and ambience of the restaurants. This attention to detail and commitment to excellence set Martin Allen Flooring and French Polishing apart.

A Year-Long Commitment to Excellence

This project spanned 12 months and countless miles (including air miles for our Scottish ventures). It was a testament to our dedication and craftsmanship. The results were undoubtedly worth the effort, bringing a fresh and inviting look to each La Tasca restaurant.

So, the next time you dine at a La Tasca restaurant, take a moment to admire the beautifully refurbished wood floors and bar tops—each one a testament to the skill and dedication of Martin Allen Flooring and French Polishing.
