Sir John Fitzgerald Pubs, The Bridge Hotel, Newcastle

Whilst my pub photography is mainly for Heineken’s Star Pubs & Bars internal marketing, I  recently worked with MBL Solutions who were re-branding for Sir John Fitzgerald pubs. Their portfolio of North East pubs and bars needed to be captured for their new website. The brief was similar to those of the Star Pubs refurbishments, capturing a range of elements that highlight the character, interior and offerings of the pub. I creatively captured the beautiful wooden structures, the vast Victorian bar and the friendly staff along with other features that caught my eye showing this traditional pub off to its best.

The Sun Tavern, Covent Garden, London

You may have seen my post yesterday about Heineken’s Star Pubs & Bars best pub guide for capitals London and Edinburgh. I loved the variety of the 20 pubs I photographed in both capitals and wanted to share some of the imagery that shows off each interior style.

If like me you are a lover of exploring new cities and their pubs you may like to see The Sun Tavern in London’s busy Covent Garden, whether it be bowler hats as light shades or the old fashioned swimming pool warning signs against ‘heavy petting’ as a decor, there are lots of fab ideas for any interior buffs out there!

The Kings Arms, Heineken Pub Awards Finalist

Last month I was touring the UK photographing a mammoth 27 (yes…. TWENTY SEVEN!!) Heineken pubs for their annual awards ceremony. I could see immediately why this pub had been shortlisted as soon as I arrived.

It’s strength was in the Marketing category as owners Paul & Robert are super up to date with social networking, website presence and promoting their themed fancy dress nights. What a totally welcoming and cosy pub this is! It was a pleasure to arrive here one drizzly October day and Paul and Robert were extremely accommodating and friendly, clearly loved by the locals for offering fantastic food and coffee during the day and fun and frolics at night!

If you are in this neck of the woods please drop by, its really, really worth a visit;
