Ed St bar and restaurant

Ed St’s design is a tribute to the heritage of the building, retaining its character and restoring it to its former glory as one of Pukekohe’s most iconic historical landmarks.

The Ed St restaurant is in the old Pukekohe fire station

Having started life as the Pukekohe firestation in 1924. 27 Edinburgh Street is now home to affectionately nicknamed Ed St, a vibrant bar and restaurant.

The two storey firestation was first redeveloped into a bar in the 1980s and with the most recent redevelopment it has now become the upmarket gastro pub Edinburgh Street sporting a new look and fixtures and fittings inside and out. The main downstairs area has been opened up with bar and casual dining space. Upstairs caters for formal dining. The creation of an indoor/outdoor area with a louvered roof and fireplace enables the space to adapt to the season.

Outside the plaster is finished in Resene Limelock cure and seal to lock in any free lime then finished in Resene Lumbersider low sheen waterborne paint tinted to Resene Half Mondo (lizard brown), complemented by bargeboards and windowsills finished in Resene Sandspit Brown (soft beige) from the Karen Walker collection and soffits finished in Resene Albescent White (pale beige), also from the Karen Walker collection.

The galvanised frame on the louvered roof is finished in Resene Galvo-Prime galvanised iron primer topcoated in Resene Summit Roof satin waterborne roof paint tinted to Resene Ironsand (brown grey). And for a final sleek finishing touch, steel planter boxes are protected with Resene Uracryl tinted to Resene Black.

Inside the palette turns monochromatic with concrete walls finished in Resene SpaceCote Low Sheen tinted to Resene Double White Pointer (beige neutral), with a double strength below the dado. In a stark contrast, timber trim, doors and the dado are finished in high gloss Resene Enamacryl tinted to Resene Black complemented by bench seats protected by Resene Uracryl tinted to Resene Black for extra durability. The complete look is finished with Resene SpaceCote Flat tinted to Resene White Pointer (stark off-white) on the ceiling and imported wallpaper.

Ed St focuses on its roots sourcing as much as it can close to home, an added incentive for locals who can enjoy a night out knowing that they are enjoying some of Franklin’s finest produce.
