Publicans Paul and Frank Sprackman have added two further NewRiver pubs to their growing portfolio – The Luckwell and The New Found Out, both in Bristol.
The father and son duo – who now have six pubs in total, including NewRiver’s Eagle, in Redditch, Worcestershire – have run The Luckwell since May 2016, and took on The New Found Out earlier this year.
With a £28,000 investment from NewRiver, the retail and leisure property company that has 350 pubs in England and Wales, The Luckwell has undergone a full exterior refurbishment including new signage. In addition to the external works, Paul and Frank have given the interior a new lease of life with fresh paint throughout, making it a more welcoming place for visitors.
“The Luckwell is our fifth pub and it’s exciting to see our portfolio expand. We already run The Eagle, in Worcestershire, another NewRiver pub, so we knew how they worked and wanted to develop our relationship with them,” says Frank. “We were keen to take on more pubs, so were thrilled when operations manager Clive Greene suggested we put ourselves forward for The Luckwell, which has done really well since we received the keys last May. And following the successes of The Eagle and The Luckwell, we’ve taken on our third NewRiver site, The New Found Out, also in Bristol.”
