Gerry McGrath of The Poachers in Bedwell Crescent, Stevenage, is celebrating a 30-year milestone of operating the pub.
Having run the Greene King venue since 1993, McGrath is thought to be the longest serving pub landlord in the town.
During his 30 years of tenure, he has turned The Poachers into a popular community pub loved and renowned by locals in the area.
The pub is famous for its darts and pool teams, sports coverage, live music and charity fundraisers – all in aid of local charities.
In recognition of his 30 years at The Poachers – as well as his commitment to the local community – Greene King Pub Partners managing director Dan Robinson presented him with a specially made plaque to display at the pub.
"The community has always been at the heart of what I do," says McGrath. "I’d like to especially thank the local community who welcomed me with open arms all those years ago, as well as my customers, staff and Greene King for their support over the years."
