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.

Star Pubs & Bars, The Four Horseshoes, Surrey

This pub had been empty for ages and situated in a little village on the green it was a fantastic opportunity for a new lessee and a creative modern refurb.

The interior was stuffed with vintage goods collected in charity shops and boot fairs. there were old leather briefcases attached to walls holding newspapers & magazines, a stacked suitcase feature and dangling vintage lamp shades. The pub felt full of colour and texture and warmth!  The whole place was made perfect by the amazing food & drink and of course the super smiley staff!

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;
