Robinsons continues to invest across pub estate

Robinsons Brewery has continued to invest in its pubs throughout the pandemic, with a multi-million-pound investment programme including 20 significant refurbishments since the beginning of the pandemic.

The Stockport-based pub chain operates over 240 tenanted and 20 managed pubs in North Wales and the North West of England.

With the easing of lockdown in England, and people now able to visit pubs inside, the chain has made a number of safety measures.

Robinsons’ have introduced safe outdoor areas across their pub estate, revamping original patio areas introducing outdoor heaters, and creating snug seating and sheltered spaces. Many beer gardens have been transformed into relaxing spaces with marquees, pods and outdoor dining areas, increasing the number of covers and allowing for a more comfortable experience; the same dedication has been given to the pub interiors, which customers can now also enjoy.

William Robinson, Managing Director (Pub Division), said: “Investment, licensee support and training have been key drivers over the last year in particular.

“We have invested a large amount of capital expenditure and completed just over 20 pub refurbishments. As a result, our pubs have traded well when the weather has permitted, with infection rates at very low levels and on the back of the success of the vaccination programme, the government must permit a full relaxation of restrictions from 21st June.

“We fully expect that outdoor areas will remain very popular; customer safety and great experiences are the bedrock of a great pub visit.”
