Most of our pubs have been brought back to life from a derelict state and lovingly restored to their former glory, while others joined us at the end of their leases.
We have created a concept we are incredibly proud of, which doesn’t fade with time, or try and fit into the latest fad – we’re authentic and real.
Our food is classic and contemporary, made with the freshest of ingredients by fantastic chefs who are all proud to work for their individual pubs, and share their recipes around the Old Spot collection.
Our drinks portfolio is of the highest grades with local ales and lagers served alongside the most iconic brands.
The Old Spot simple philosophy – “Relax and be yourself, everyone else is taken”
Our People: We are passionate about hospitality, training, and optimising the potential in all our people. We want our team and our guests to have fun
Our Food: Every dish is ‘stylishly simple’, generous but not over facing. Premium but not expensive, and accessible, not fussy
Our Drink: The perfect serve each & every time. Cask Marque approved. Premium quality and local pricing
Our Experience: Unique hospitality to give our guests a compelling reason to visit and a compelling reason to return
The Old Spot symbolises quality – a local that everyone wants to call their own, whether it’s in the country or a bustling street in London.
Old Spot is about the authentic love of people, the people we employ, our guests we serve and the offer we deliver.
We are made up of 15 amazing pubs, which we are pleased to say are growing.
