Thrilled to announce that we have bought six magnificent London pubs as part of our acquisition of Grand Union Group.
That means we now have 16 pubs. Scary stuff, I say. But also exciting.
I met with the whole Grand Union team yesterday morning and I can confirm that they are a terrific bunch – our job is to immerse them in the wonderful world of beer and Draft House service as we convert the pubs into Draft Houses. That will happen gradually over the next 4-5 months and in the meantime the Grand Union sites carry on rocking that crazy disco-pub vibe! To book there or check out the new pubs hit up www.grandunionbars.com.
The first two pubs to be Draft-House-ified are Kennington and Camden.
Kennington, bang next to the Imperial War Museum and with a sensational roof terrace, closed on Monday and reopens on 31st July.
Camden will close in a couple of weeks and reopens end-August.
The other sites will follow in due course, watch this space.
