Dan Shotton and Mark Draper, the co-founders and joint MDs of Redcomb Pubs have founded a new business called Prospect Pubs & Bars.

It follows the recent sale of Redcomb Pubs’ to Young’s for £34m last month.

Shotton and Mark Draper set up the business in 2010, and grew it to a 15-strong portfolio before selling it to Young’s. 

Commenting at the time of the sale Draper hinted they would be remaining within the pub sector. “Both Dan and I have ‘pubs’ in our blood. Where that takes us next marks an exciting new chapter that we can’t wait to build upon,” he said.
