Best Joint Investment: Snooty Fox Tavern, Kirkby Lonsdale
Thomas, Oliver, Jayne and Chris Ledsham
Working closely with Ei Publican Partnerships, the Ledsham family have completely transformed the Snooty Fox giving the pub its soul and energy back.
A designer was appointed to oversee the refurbishment project and to help create a home from home environment.
The entire pub has been updated and refreshed and the family have brought a touch of quality, comfort and luxury to a pub that has craved it such a long time.

Forrests Arms, Longridge
Alan and Christina Odix
The Forrests Arms is a long established pub at the heart of the community in Longridge at the gateway to the beautiful Ribble Valley which, following a major investment, has been given a new lease of life.
To allow businesses to grow, it is sometimes necessary for us and our publicans to jointly invest in our properties.
We heard from publicans who have invested in their pubs alongside Ei Publican Partnerships to allow them to develop their retail offer.
We saw examples of how publicans have spent the money to ensure maximum return on investment and imaginative ways in which publicans have developed their trading areas.
