TCG Bars, the pub and bar business backed by Alchemy Partners, has revealed details of its coming capex programme, which includes a £200k spend at an historic Norfolk coaching inn. The investment at Henry’s Cafe Bar in Haymarket will see the venue revert to its original name the Lamb Inn when it reopens on 20 October; the 18th century site previously operated as a Rat & Parrott. Other investments over the coming months include the conversion of Bar 38 at West India Quay in London’s Docklands to the Henry’s Café Bar brand, and a major refurbishment of the Black Bull in Morpeth, Northumberland. In addition, TCG’s value food offer King’s Feast is to be introduced to community pubs including the Molly Millar in Wokingham, the Parrswood Hotel in East Didsbury, near Manchester, and the Sugar Loaf in Dunstable. TCG chief operating officer Nigel Wright said: “Our recent pub developments have generated a strong uplift in sales and are typically providing industry-leading returns on investment. We’re confident that this next phase of our capital investment programme will have similar results, and we aim to bring more pubs into it in the New Year.” Earlier this year, M&C Report reported that TCG is to ratchet up “low spend but high impact” investments in its estate from September 2011. The company is to spend around £1.5m on 20 sites in the 12 months from September, compared to 15 in the previous financial year. An average of £70,000 to £75,000 will be invested in each venue.
