Warwickshire pub operator Beer & Coffee Co. is opening its fourth site under its Pug brand, after taking on The White Horse in Shipston on Stour.
The site will be Beer & Coffee's fourth lease with Star Pubs & Bars, with the operator investing £160,000 on an initial refurbishment.
The investment has transformed the pub into a new family-friendly local, complete with its own corner coffee bar and five en suite boutique letting rooms. The pub will join Beer & Coffee Co.’s Pug brand and has been renamed The Lazy Pug to mark its new direction.
“Leased pubs work best for us, as they’re the quickest way to expand," says Matt Crowther, co-founder of Beer & Coffee Co. "We’ve built up a loyal local following for Pug Pubs and, with four sites, we’ve now got a strong structure and team in place from which to grow further. We enjoy working with Star – they’re innovative, keen to invest and flexible about adapting to suit our business model.”
Beer & Coffee Co.’s other venues include The Black Pug in Warwick and The Fat Pug, The Royal Pug and Procaffeinate coffee shop in Leamington Spa. The company is now looking to expand further with Star Pubs & Bars, with a view to building a group of up to 10 Pug-branded pubs in the West Midlands.
