TCG spends £400,000 on pub refurbs

Managed pub group TCG has invested £400,000 in two sites in Newquay and Nottingham, which are set to reopen this month.

The two sites are Squares in Nottingham and the Sailors Arms in Newquay, both of which combine a pub/bar and late-night club under one roof.

The refurbishments are designed broaden the sites' appeal, with a focus on growing daytime trade.

At Squares, new seating booths and softer colours have created a warmer, more welcoming feel. The drinks range has been extended, including the addition of three cask ales, while a new pizza area has been installed to create a food option around late night and live sport occasions. The business is also opening from the earlier time of 9am.

At the Sailors Arms, the investment has focused on the traditional pub area, where the interior design is inspired by 1950s seaside resorts with a contemporary edge that sees distressed timbers mixed with more industrial furnishings.

TCG chief operating officer Nigel Wright said, "Both Squares and the Sailors Arms were trading strongly prior to the refurbishments and had excellent reputations in their local area, primarily for their late night offer.

"We identified an opportunity to take a bigger slice of the daytime custom and we're confident that the targeted investment will enable both sites to grow this side of their business, as well as refreshing the offer for their late night customers."

TCG operates 75 pubs across the country.
