Greg Bellamy, co-owner of The Jolly Fine Pub Group, which operates three London pubs with rooms, has left the company to pursue new business challenges within the hospitality industry.

Bellamy founded the company with chef Paul Merrett more than nine years ago, with its portfolio currently comprising The Fox and Grapes in Wimbledon, The Malt House in Fulham, and The Victoria in East Sheen.

Merrett said: “After nearly a decade of working together, I am very sad to see Greg go. Our close working relationship has meant we have achieved some great things together and he will be sorely missed. I look forward to hearing about Greg’s next venture in due course and, of course, wish him all the very best.”
