Livelyhood, the five-strong London pub group, has announced total turnover of £5.9m for the full year ending 31 July 2018 – up 29% on the previous year.

The Sarah Wall led business grew profitability by 30% year on year, with the group acquiring The Faber Fox in Crystal Palace, with plans for further expansion in the coming year.

The Clapham North underwent a refurbishment of the whole ground floor as well as the introduction of private events space and pop-up venue, The Treehouse, while a £100,000 refurbishment of The Old Frizzle in Wimbledon is planned for 2019.

Wall said: “This has been a significant and transformational year for Livelyhood. We gave a new lease of life to one of our much-loved current sites, The Clapham North, and have opened a new venue in Crystal Palace that is performing above and beyond our expectations. We look forward to continued growth with two new openings and a further refurbishment in the current year.”
