Welcome Back to your Community Pub, Mark Davies Visit to The Squirrel, High Wycombe

We were thrilled to celebrate over 90% of our Hawthorn pubs across England reopen their doors and over twenty of our Scottish pubs opening up outside areas, with Wales following later this month. It finally feels like we can get back to what we love doing the most – serving our community.

The last three months without pubs has been very challenging for our Partners, teams, suppliers and local communities and so we are hugely thankful to be able to run great community pubs with great Partners, once again.

Here’s CEO Mark Davies on one of his visits this weekend to The Squirrel, High Wycombe.

    Hawthorn has announced a rebrand, with a new name and platform putting its purpose right at the heart of its business. Now to be known as Hawthorn: The Community Pub Company, the move reflects Hawthorn’s business strategy, and its ambition to become the number one community pub company. News of the rebrand was announced on the day that Hawthorn CEO Mark Davies announced the company’s results for the six months to the end of September, with the business outperforming the sector as the nation emerged from the first lockdown.

    A message from Mark Davies, CEO of Hawthorn:

    Hawthorn continues to offer support to all our pubs, and we are monitoring the impacts of each of the UK government announcements closely. The Government support offered to pubs in Tier 3 in England, and to those affected by widespread closures in Scotland, and the Fire Break in Wales from this Friday, simply does not go far enough. Pubs still have to cover all normal overheads, and ensure there is food on the tables of their own families at the end of the week. The grants made available by the various Governments, whilst welcome, fail to cover the weekly overheads most businesses encounter.
