Love at first pint

26th January 2019

Historically pubs have always played an important part in creating happy memories, and here at Young’s we’re proud to offer the perfect journey all the way from love at first pint, to saying those all-important words, ‘I do’.



Finding love at the pub is certainly nothing new with one poll revealing that over 60% of people agree that the pub is a great place for a first date. So it’s no surprise to hear that Brits love going for a drink with their partner, infact a  whopping 90% of us love heading to the pub with our other half. Pub love is clearly strong contender when it comes to romancing your significant other and for many it doesn’t just stop there – once you’ve met ‘the one’ it’s time to pop the question. 


This New Year’s Eve we were over the moon to hear the news that the White Cross pub in Richmond was the back drop to Spencer and Rosie’s engagement story, we caught up with Spencer a few weeks later to find out how it went.


“I proposed at the White Cross, Richmond on NYE 2018 as this was the 1st place we went on a date and we just love the pub, sitting out in the sun on a summer afternoon and watching the ducks and boats on the river it is just magical. I was very nervous and definitely had a few to drink beforehand to give me some courage – but she said yes which is all that matters!! “

With the all-important question done and dusted it’s time to start planning your big day and when it comes to Stags and Hens, gone are the days where the pub plays just part of the pre-wedding crawl, steeped in tradition and offering everything from cocktail classes to calligraphy workshops, the pub pulls out all the stops when it comes to the pre wedding parties.


Whilst we all love a novelty straw,  here at Young’s, we believe your pre-wedding party is as important as the day itself and have a team of experts on hand to help create those perfect memories.
