Our Communities

Our Communities

Communities and pubs go hand in hand, creating vibrant social places that offer much more than just drinks. These pubs are at the heart of the community that provide a unique and essential gathering point, fostering a sense of belonging and where friendships are forged and deepened.

Our pubs offer a laid-back and safe environment where friends and families can enjoy quality time together, and people can come together and connect over shared experiences. Frequently hosting events, such as open mic nights, ‘Meet up Mondays’ at the Alexandra in Wimbledon to combat loneliness, weddings, or simply enjoying some rugby. Pubs are a vital part of British life, bringing people together to create lasting memories

Food bank and community scheme initative Pass The Plate, and School of Hard Knocks who use sports and other activities to help participants re-engage with school or find employment.

We are delighted to partner with Surrey Ceramics who produce premium products for many of our pubs. With every piece hand-checked with a remarkable eye for detail, their ceramics truly showcase the very best of British craftmanship and they have a key focus on sustainability.
