In 2013 Brunning & Price retained specialist property advisers Christie + Co to search for appropriate sites for their expanding pub portfolio.
Brunning & Price is made up of a group of 55 pubs, split between the North West and South East and has been part of The Restaurant Group (TRG) since 2007. Over the past two years Brunning & Price have acquired 11 new sites with Christie + Co assistance and are still looking to acquire another 10 sites in 2016, with four sites already in the pipeline.
Most recently they have acquired another three sites including The Wobbly Wheel, near Banbury, The Jolly Farmers, Betchworth and The Fox Revived, Horley.
Christie + Co continue to be retained to search for suitable properties and Brunning & Price are looking for locations between Lancashire and Kent in rural, semi rural or urban sites within plots of at least 1.25 acres with the ability to create a bar restaurant venue seating at least 120 people.
Simon Chaplin, Director, Corporate Pubs & Restaurants, Christie + Co comments: “We’re very pleased to have a flourishing and long standing relationship with Brunning & Price leading to their most recent successful purchases of these three pubs in the last few months. As they continue with expansion outside of their current core area of the North West and the South East, we are looking for suitable buildings and sites throughout the West Midlands and around locations such as Milton Keynes, York, Stratford Upon Avon, Oxford and Cheltenham as well as along the M4 to bring their individual style and quality to a wider audience.”
