Successful pub operator, Redcomb Pubs Ltd, owned by Dan Shotton and Mark Draper, has purchased The Old Shades in Whitehall to add to its growing portfolio of pubs and pubs with rooms. Previously owned by Faucett Inns, The Old Shades is an iconic Grade II listed, quintessentially British pub, that has been serving the people of London since it was originally built in 1898. Ideally situated in the heart of Westminster, just off Trafalgar Square, The Old Shades is a favourite amongst local office workers, including the numerous civic offices within the near vicinity, and the many tourists to London looking for a traditional pub offering.
Featuring a 100 cover dining area, characterful bar and a range of quality British ales, The Old Shades is a well-researched addition to the Redcomb Pubs family of town centre and rural pubs, each offering a traditional British pub experience combined with the modern style, welcome and hospitality demanded by today’s consumer.
Commenting on the successful acquisition, Dan Shotton, managing director of Redcomb Pubs says;
“We are delighted to bring The Old Shades into the Redcomb family and to see our collection of great pubs grow once more. Strengthening our Central London portfolio is a key strategy for the accelerated growth of Redcomb and integral to the diversification of venues that we operate. The Old Shades is a well established and well-known quality pub, loved by locals and tourists alike. We look forward to working with the team there, introducing our successful, tried and tested Redcomb formula of providing top notch food, drink and hospitality, as well as taking on the legacy of this historic landmark of a traditional British pub. “
