TCG revamps two
25 February, 2013
Managed pub group TCG has kicked off a major capex programme with the reopening of sites in St Helens and Bristol after £200,000 refurbs.
The launch of the new-look Sefton Arms in St Helens and Bristol’s The Greenhouse (pictured) have had two separate overhauls—the first aimed at upgrading sports viewing and late-night entertainment, and the latter aiming for a more upmarket sector with an airy layout. Both pubs have stepped up their focus on food, with a wider menu, meal deals and breakfast offer in St Helens and a trial of a new British-themed ‘Platters, Pies and Puddings’ menu in Bristol.
TCG now plans to revamp more of its 75 managed sites over the year. Chief operating officer Nigel Wright said, “We’re delighted with these refurbishments, which are already delivering impressive sales uplifts at both pubs. The Sefton Arms and the Greenhouse are representative of our capex programme for 2013—great pubs which have been performing well, but which could greatly increase trade with the right investment. We are planning further targeted investment to make sure that each of our pubs and bars is the very best in its local area.”
