Mosaic Pub & Dining has taken on the Jam Circus in Brockley from Antic as well as acquiring The Admiral Hardy in Greenwich Market.

The deals completed this week as well as the freehold purchase of The Royal Oak in New Malden from Greene King, as reported by MCA earlier this month.

The EIS-backed group will grow to 24 sites with the new additions. In caps a busy six months, which has also seen it add a three-strong package of pubs in Birmingham from Libertas Pubs Ltd as well as the New Quay, Greenwich, which it acquired last summer, which will be named The Oystercatcher.

Joint chief executive James Watson told MCA that each of the new properties offered different scope for development, with a focus on the outside area at The Royal Oak, plans to add boutique bedrooms to The Admiral Hardy and a full revamp of the Jam Circus.

Watson told MCA: “We’ve made some real progress in the past six months but it tends to be the way that things come in fits and spurts. We’ve got a lot to do now in integrating these sites into the estate so that will be the focus but we’re still acquisitive.”

On recent trade, Watson said: “We had a fantastic Christmas but I think everyone is finding it tough so far this year. There is a sense that people are keeping their powder dry but we’re expecting Spring to bring people out a bit more.”

Paul Tallantyre, of Davis Coffer Lyons, acted on the Greenwich deal.
