Three pubs across the UK have each received fantastic £10,000 garden makeovers from Thatchers.
The Old Mill in Woolacombe, The Haxey Gate in Doncaster, and the Kings Head in Norfolk were the three winners of a national competition where pubs simply needed to purchase three or more kegs of Thatchers ciders, to be automatically entered into the draw.
The manager at the Old Mill, Mark Galpin said, “We are lucky to have a spacious multi-level outdoor area but it lacked lighting when dark, so we couldn’t make full use of it once the sun had gone down. With new umbrellas, jumbrellas, lighting, and even fixed table numbers, we’re delighted with the new look garden that now adds to our customer experience.”
James Palmer, at Thatchers says, “It’s great to see the difference a vibrant outdoor space can make to a pub. Attractive outside space, whether a garden or courtyard, however large or small, has an increasingly growing appeal to customers, whether with garden furniture, planters, lighting or even an events stage.
“And a pub garden isn’t just for summer. With lighting, heaters and cover, gardens are playing a key part in increasing capacity for venues throughout the year.
We’ll drink (cider) to that!
