The Board of Admiral Taverns earlier today confirmed completion of the acquisition of 150 tenanted community pubs from Star Pubs & Bars.
The acquisition plan was announced in September as part of Admiral’s growth strategy as a leading operator of community pubs. Through its highly supportive and award-winning operations-centric approach, the Group has developed a high-quality estate of approximately 950 sustainable, individual and authentic wet-led pubs.
Commenting, Chris Jowsey, Chief Executive of Admiral Taverns said: “On behalf of the entire company, I am delighted to officially welcome our new licensees to Admiral.
“Core to our approach is our commitment to invest behind our pubs and licensees, supporting them to build vibrant social hubs that can thrive at the heart of their local communities.
“Our team have been working hard to ensure the integration process for our new licensees has been as smooth as possible and we look forward to developing these new working partnerships.”
