Pint Shop to close Oxford site

Pub operator Pint Shop has announced it will close its Oxford site this Saturday 16 February after two and a half years.

Co-founder Richard Holmes said: "We've loved being part of the Oxford scene for two and a half years, but sadly despite throwing everything at it, we just can't make the numbers work in Oxford.

"On a more positive note, our Birmingham site is now four months old, and early signs are super positive. Our plan for the immediate future is to solidify Birmingham, brush ourselves down and look for new opportunities."

Pint Shop was founded with the group's first site in Cambridge in November 2013 with the aim of capturing the spirit of the beer houses of the 1830s. The group has one other site in Birmingham, which opened in October 2018.
