Young’s has completed the £300k refurbishment of Horts in Bristol, which has been fully restored and now features a new 26-cinema – a first for the British brewer and pub operator.

The ‘Director’s Cut’ cinema, situated adjacent to the 18th century pub on Broad Street, is part of Young’s strategy to encourage pre-booked business in the thriving media community of Bristol.

“The cinema has given Horts pub a new lease of life and feedback has been terrific,” said Young’s operations director Steve Gallagher. “We’ve seen a significant increase in food sales and private bookings.”

The cinema features leather recliners, presentation equipment and Wi-Fi, with a variety of hire packages available. Young’s hope it will appeal to consumers looking for ‘a complete night out under one roof’.

Horts’ food offer has also been revitalised and now includes ‘on-trend dishes’, grazing boards and sharing plates to go alongside Young’s beers, craft ales, European lagers and ciders.

Activity

The core activity of Pubs and Bars for since prohibition, stage coaches or cave men has been the spontaneous, informal and social interaction of the guests. That's why most F&B operators don't have the TV sound up. Successful operators keep their guests engaged and involved with the guests own peer group. We can watch TV at home, smoke and drink cheap beer.
