Pub group Frontier Pubs has opened its eighth site, following the partnership between Ei Managed Investments and operator Pioneer Hospitality.

The Duke of Wellington in Dalston, east London, opened last week. A ninth site, The Grosvenor Arms in Wandsworth, south London, will open on Wednesday 12 December.

Peter Myers, commercial director for Pioneer Hospitality, said the group was delighted with Frontier Pubs’ portfolio growth since its October 2016 launch.

He added: “Across our pubs we have a winning formula that combines awesome pizza with craft beer and big screen sports, and through the Ei Group estate we’re lucky enough to have some fantastic pubs in stand-out locations.”

“The first few days of trading at The Duke of Wellington have been really strong,” he said.

'Vibrant pubs'

“The extensive craft beer offering has been well received among locals who have also told us they’re thrilled about our pizza menu, as previously the pub didn’t do food of any note.”

Nathan Wall, operations director for Ei Managed Investments, said he was pleased to see the new additions.

“Peter and his team are fantastic operators who have enhanced each venue to create busy, vibrant pubs with a quality offering,” he said.

There are currently 11 Ei Managed Investment partnerships in operation, following the launch of Vixen Pubs​ in October.

The previous vehicle for Frontier Pubs was Food and Fuel, before the gastro pub operator was sold to The Restaurant Group (TRG) for £15.4m in August this year.
