It was a pleasure to attend the British Beer and Pub Association Leased & Tenanted Pub Showcase in the House of Commons to meet the CEO of Punch Pub Co, Clive Chesser, from East Molesey.
The showcase took place to support and celebrate the role that pubs play within our communities and the benefit they bring to both those who visit, and those who work in pubs.
Punch is a multi-award-winning pub company with around 1,250 pubs in England, Scotland, and Wales. I enjoyed hearing about Punch Pub Co and their vision to run pubs centred around communities, driven by passionate local partners.
As MP for Esher and Walton constituency, I want to see our local pubs thrive. So, in support of our great local pubs, I have launched my first-ever Pub of the Year competition. Head to https://www.dominicraab.com/pub2022 to select your favourite local pub from the list!
