The Canteen, Old Portsmouth

Owners Bill and Lucy saw an opportunity to create a first class vibrant deli-style cafe in the historic Hot Walls of Old Portsmouth. As BFES maintains and services their kitchens at the Tenth Hole site in Southsea, they knew that we not only offer service and maintenance, but also design and install.

Our clients trust us to deliver effective and fast solutions, completed to a high standard. We provide a professional, reliable service and enjoy long standing relationships with our customers.

“Having a good relationship with BFES throughout was important. They understood our ideas and visions and made them happen. It was stress-free from start to finish and I’d 100% recommend BFES to anyone needing kitchen or servery builds, general maintenance or one-off bits of kitchen equipment.”
