Ei's Craft Union Pub Company hits 300 sites

Craft Union Pub Company has opened The Tivoli Tavern in Grimsby, which brings its estate to 300 pubs.

The Tivoli Tavern re-opened its doors on Friday 12 April following a £130,000 refurbishment project.

Craft Union opened its first pub in May 2015. While its roots are in the north of England, it has now opened pubs in locations such as Devon, Cornwall, East Anglia, Kent, the Isle of Wight and London.

“We are very excited to have opened our 300th refurbished pub, which marks a significant milestone in our exciting growth journey,” says Frazer Grimbleby, operations director of Craft Union Pub Company. “Every decision we make, we do so with the community and our operators at the forefront of our minds, and that’s why Craft Union is such a success story. We are so passionate about running pubs that cater for the whole community and we work hard to truly understand what each community needs.”

Around half of Craft Union operators have joined the pub company from Ei Publican Partnerships, the leased and tenanted division of Ei Group.

Following the 300th opening, the pace of new Craft Union openings is set to continue, with a pipeline of further sites planned across the UK.
