We are ‘Jolly’ Excited About Our Newest Venture

We are pleased to announce that we have just signed for the sixth pub to our estate, the Jolly Sailor in Davenport!

There have been whispers for nearly a year surrounding the future of the 19th century pub, following its closure in January 2018, with speculation from disappointed locals that they would be permanently losing the heart of their community. However, as the rumour mill has been turning it also correctly predicted that we were interested in the business. We are proud of our reputation for taking on and turning around pubs that had been a little ‘un-loved’.

Doug Almond said; “We’re so pleased we can make the official announcement that we’re taking over the pub, we’ve had months of negotiations with the brewery and we’ve been desperate to respond to all of the positive feedback we have received from the people of Davenport via social media and our loyal guests in our five pubs.

We’ve been listening closely to what you want, and we will be doing what we can to make sure the pub works for you. Of course, we will be serving our famous carvery but, having listened and seen the success of our extended menus in our existing pubs, we will offer a good pub menu alongside, as well as keeping dedicated areas for drinkers. It’s safe to say the locals want their pub back and that’s exactly what they are going to get”

The pub will see an investment close to £1,000,000 and is due to re-open in Spring 2019.

If you’re interested in joining the Jolly Sailor team then we would love to hear from you, we will be holding recruitment events throughout the refurbishment. Register your interest
