Read what Greg Hird has to say about Masons Self Storage

“Masons Self Storage is the backbone of our operational flexibility at One O’clock Gate. It empowers us to seamlessly execute a myriad of tasks, from effortlessly pulling off diverse events with stored furniture and equipment to swiftly adapting our menu based on seasonal inspiration. The convenience of having backup kitchen equipment at our fingertips is invaluable in emergencies. Beyond the operational ease, the financial perks are game-changing; Masons Self Storage allows us to acquire equipment as needed strategically, steering clear of expensive short-term hire costs and ensuring long-term savings for our establishment.”

Greg Hird, a founding member of One O’clock Gate

Get ready to be amazed by the smart moves this Welsh restaurant bar pulls off with Masons Self Storage.

In the close-knit and charming community of Dinas Powys, One O’clock Gate (OOG) opened its doors in 2021. It is an Asian-fusion restaurant and bar founded by four local childhood friends driven by an insatiable love for food. The creative minds behind this gastronomic gem—Alex Gilflin, James Nellany, and brothers David and Greg Hird—bring a dynamic blend of skills from entrepreneurship, business management, hospitality, and engineering.

More than a culinary venture, One O’clock Gate is a heartfelt ode to the community that nurtured these friends and shaped their journey. The restaurant boasts a dedicated team of over 20 members, all local talents from areas like Penarth, Barry, and Dinas Powys.

The community spirit doesn’t end there. One O’clock Gate’s commitment to its roots is mirrored in its choice of local suppliers and locally sourced ingredients that celebrate the region’s richness.

The big question is, what value do our flexible storage units bring to the One O’clock Gate team? Greg Hird, one of the founders, explained it perfectly. He said that OOG not only crafts great food and drinks, but it also doubles as a vibrant entertainment venue, hosting parties, events, and seasonal celebrations.

This diverse nature means that self-storage is pivotal in daily operations. For instance, when hosting events, the OOG team can effortlessly access extra tables, chairs, and kitchen and audio gear from storage. Additionally, adapting the menu to showcase seasonal produce and new culinary ideas is a seamless process. The team can bring in equipment from storage to accommodate new dishes and cooking methods while stowing away items not currently in use.

The establishment relies on self-storage for many more reasons, including significant long-term cost-saving perks. Explore these additional advantages by reading our dedicated One O’clock Gate blog. In the blog, we not only spotlight the practical aspects of self-storage but also unveil the origin story of this vibrant restaurant and bar and introduce you to the talented individuals behind its delectable food.
