Three Metropolitan pubs open after refurbishments
Metropolitan Pub Company is reopening three London pubs after each has received a major investment -
The Prince Bonaparte in Westbourne Grove, The Hare & Billet in Blackheath and The Footman in Mayfair.
The Prince Bonaparte has been reopened following a six figure investment. The bar has been totally revitalised with rich leathers and deep timbers, and the reworked bar counterprovides additional seating for guests to drink or eat.
The Hare & Billet in Blackheath has reopened its doors following a refurbishment. As part of the renovation, the interior of the pub has been redecorated to bring the venue back to life and enhance the existing traditional style. Warm timber tones and textured weaves have been added to existing furniture to create a softer and more snug mood to drinking areas.
Finally, The Footman, which also received a six figure investment, now has clearly defined zones on each floor to separate drinking and dining, with the upper floors available for exclusive private hire.
The main bar has been redesigned to open up the space and to allow for more guests seated than were previously available.
