Pub group brews success despite recession

Despite the ongoing recession a small pub group in Bolton is defying the odds by reporting an increase in sales.

Welcome Taverns runs The Brewhouse pub in Blackburn Road and the Thomas Egerton in Egerton as well as the Bleachworks members’ bar at Dunscar Bridge Business Park.
The worst recession in 60 years has claimed the scalps of many once-successful businesses and left high streets littered with empty shops and pubs. However, the pub group says its sales have risen 10 per cent on last year.

The Welcome Taverns’ area manager, said “adapting to the needs of different customer groups through the day and night was vital, along with offering good food, cask ales and friendly service”.
