Rowlinson Party Arbour

Product Code: PERPARH EAN: 5013856015086

(4.5) Based on 7 Reviews


This Party Arbour from Rowlinson should be regarded as a design classic. It looks so good and is extremely practical.

With the seat in place, you have an attractive arbour. Fold the seat away and put the two side panels in place, and the arbour is transformed into party central. The BBQ fits neatly under cover and the tables are useful for plates, relishes, salads and glasses.

It will be the ideal centre piece to any summer party. And when all the guests have gone home, let the seat down again and you can relax with a nice sup of tea, or perhaps something stronger.

The arbour is manufactured to exacting ISO 9001:2008 standards by Rowlinson, who have over 80 years' experience of desiging and fabricating high quality timber products.

Very pleased with the finished arbor/seat.

Selected this purely for the seat and overall appearance/aesthetics. Not interested in the barbeque function. Painted all components before assembly in old English green with cream to the roof members it looks superb in the corner of the garden. I used stainless steel screws not the supplied mild steel screws as they rust in no time and will tend to split the wood. The side tables were warped so they needed fixing in situation with screws until they weather into the intended position hopefully. Fitting the roof requires three preferably four persons to avoid buckling the brackets that secure the roof beams together at the apex. These minor issues apart my spouse is delighted with the end result.

Wonderful Product; Superb Service

I am very impressed with the product delivered and with the service provided. I had reason to seek further advice and assistance, after delivery, from the company's Customer Care Department and I cannot praise, too highly, the help that I was given.

We added some lights too!

We have also used our Party Arbour to put a barbecue under and I must say it makes a great feature and focal point. Planning a barbie in the UK can be a nightmare but this arbour takes away a lot of the pressure just in case it starts to spot with rain. We have also decorated with battery operated lights which add a sense of occasion as well as throwing some light on the food. Some of the arbour was a little rough but nothing that some coarse sandpaper did not fix quickly. Best to have 2 people to install as tricky on your own. Overall an excellent product that is also very practical. Just need to add a glass of red wine...!

The arbour structure is solid, well made and set up in sections. Plenty of screws and fittings only one instruction. Needed stain or paint before erecting the unit and between the seat and arbour would be worth inserting 2 large washers to stop seat from rubbing stain or paint off, but it still looks very cool and finishes the garden off. Very pleased if l ever move I will buy another for my new garden. The delivery was marked down to slight damage to the top of the roof truss and lapse, due to the way they dealt with unloading and just general attitude of the driver.

My husband loves his new BBQ shelter

My husband needed something to protect his bbq from the weather, so I decided to get this for him. After a few hours assembly, he seemed very pleased with his new present and quickly rolled his bbq in to it from out of the rain. Thanks to Nathan who took my call and helped me place my order. Regards Sarah

Caroline Asked:

Do the legs have to be concreted into the ground or can the arbour be freestanding?

We Replied:

Dear Caroline Thank you for your question. The product can be left freestanding and does not need to be concreted into the ground unless you live in a very windy exposed area. We had one on display in our garden centre garden and it was freestanding on a patio throughout the year. Kind regards Nathan James Dodd
