Frontier Pubs, the joint venture between the Karen Jones-led Food & Fuel and Enterprise Inns, is to open its second and third pubs in the next two months, MCA has learnt.

The group will open the Coach & Horses in Clapham in mid-October and has also secured a third site in Hanwell, to open the following month.

The first site under the Frontier banner was The Chandos in Honor Oak, which opened at the beginning of this month.

Commercial director and co-founder of Food & Fuel Peter Myers told MCA that the first few weeks at Chandos had been a success.

He said: “I’m thrilled to say that our first few weeks have been great; the pub has been well received by the local community and it seems that we have struck the right note with the offer. Next is The Coach & Horses in Clapham, opening in mid October and then a final site for 2016 in Hanwell, set to open in November.”
