Brucan Pubs opens third site
Brucan Pubs, owned and operated by James Lyon Shaw and Jamie Dobbin, has opened The Greyhound in Finchampstead.
Brucan Pubs, owned and operated by James Lyon Shaw and Jamie Dobbin, has opened The Greyhound in Finchampstead, its third site with Greene King Pub Partners.
The pub has reopened following a joint £500,000 investment that has transformed the interior and landscaped the large outdoor space.
Three terraced levels now feature heated pods and western style wagons, a drinking terrace and a pergola-covered eating area. A village shop has also been created called Goswell & Bird’s, which is transformed in the evening into an alternative dining and event space.
“We learned from the pandemic that you need to diversify quickly and that’s why we were keen to develop another premium village pub, but with the additional trading areas like the terrace for drinking and the shop that provided for different needs,” says Lyon Shaw.
Since reopening The Greyhound, Brucan Pubs has created 40 new jobs. It now employs a total of 150 across the business with six apprentices within its three pubs The Greene Oak, Windsor; Drumming Snipe, Worthing; and The Greyhound, Finchampstead.
