Punch Pubs & Co has forked out almost £700,000 on renovating two of its pubs, which have now reopened.

Following a £370,000 investment at the Square Tavern, Euston, London, the site has reopened its doors with new management partners Faye Kewell and Petar Ivanisevic offering a “dining experience” in the heart of the capital. 

The refurbishment has focused on fine-tuning and amplifying all the pub’s assets, including a refresh of the bar and dining area.

Experienced management partners Kewell and Ivanisevic also run the hybrid café-workspace FAIM, located next to the pub.

Kewell said: “We’re so proud of the pub’s fabulous new look and being able to offer a real innovative hybrid workspace with FAIM just next door – it’s perfect for anyone using nearby Euston station, and we’ve found it creates a constant buzz of guests new and old looking to enjoy a traditional London pub.”

Offers so much

The pub’s menu features classics such as hearty beef and ale pie plus dishes like fish finger sandwiches.

Punch senior operations manager Graeme Endacott said: “Punch is incredibly proud to have invested in this fantastic pub, in such a fabulous location. The Square Tavern offers the local community and commuters so much. We’re sure the local community and visitors to the area will be equally as pleased and enjoy all Faye and Petar have to offer here for many years to come.”

Meanwhile, Punch has invested £278,000 into reopening the Gardeners, Southfields, Wansdworth, south London, with management partners Tracey and Patrick Phelan taking the helm.

The experienced couple have brought the new-look pub to life and have transformed it into a “modern, welcoming and comforting space that combines traditional elements with contemporary design”.

Extremely passionate

The pub has been given a new bar, seating and dining area with the Phelans assembling a team that includes several members of their family. The pub now offers a menu with an eclectic mix of pub classics and light bites plus a Sunday roast.

The outdoor area is being improved and will have additional seating when spring arrives. Tracey said: “We are thrilled to relaunch the pub and share the results of its extensive refurbishment. Having grown up in and around pubs, we’re extremely passionate about providing excellent service and hospitality to our guests. The investment from Punch has allowed us to create a fabulous welcoming, family-friendly environment for all to enjoy.”

Punch Pubs senior operations manager Graeme Endacott added: “We are delighted to have worked with Tracey and Patrick to transform the Gardeners pub.

“The investment reflects our commitment to providing our guests with great experiences in welcoming and comfortable environments. We wish Tracey and Patrick every success in their new venture, and we look forward to seeing the pub thrive under their management.”
