As the North West’s Circle & Hen group are preparing for a busy summer season ahead, they are also celebrating their recent successful business performance by taking over, and relaunching, Southport’s popular Thatch & Thistle pub and restaurant. As local customers and tourist guests continue to visit this upmarket coastal town, this busy venue continues to enable them to enjoy both interior and outdoor dining, alongside a whole new host of events and freshly innovative measures.
The management team have endeavoured to respect and continue the pub’s family feel, whilst introducing new initiatives in response to consumer demands. One area is that of sporting events, and Thatch & Thistle will be keen to promote football’s Premier League matches when the new season is underway. This means that fans can enjoy a friendly catch up, drinks and food whilst taking in the very best games.
The Circle & Hen team also are keen to ensure that the venue has its own, welcoming entertainments menu, and will be hosting noted DJs on weekend evenings, for those who enjoy the party spirit, while Sundays will have a more laid-back approach, so that clients can enjoy a sumptuous roast dinner, accompanied by easy going musical croon artists.
A spokesperson for Circle & Hen explains: ‘We have worked hard as a team over the last few months, and really appreciate the positive press we have enjoyed, and so this announcement is another testament to our hardworking and committed staff. We are keen to underline that there are so many Thatch & Thistle standards that we continue to respect: it will still be a very food-led destination, with table service that regular customers have come to expect and enjoy. However, we also look forward to listening to what visitors want, too, and we will be tailoring special menus for sporting events, for example.
As a company, we are known for the relationships we forge with our personnel, and this new takeover has allowed us to retain current staff, wherever this has been possible, as well as creating new employment opportunities.
On the 29th August 2021 we are also launching our first ‘Thatch & Retro’ event, featuring noted DJs, great food, and a chance to enjoy a whole day of brilliant music, and hopefully glorious weather, with free entry, to really give our customers a chance to enjoy the Bank Holiday party spirit.
We really look forward to welcoming everyone to Thatch & Thistle over this busy trading period and will ensure that the excellent standards this venue has already been famous for will be upheld, and then extended under our stewardship.’
The Circle & Hen group have already garnered praise in the national business press recently for their staff retention and financial support packages, and this new launch is part of their continuing consolidation and extension programme, with venues around the Northwest, now including Southport, looking forward to exciting and profitable times ahead.
