Bermondsey Pub Company launches first pub escape room

Bermondsey Pub Company, part of Ei Managed Operations, has launched its first interactive escape room in partnership with Handmade Mysteries.

The venue, which is located on the second floor at The Hope in Farringdon, London, works in conjunction with the pub’s existing gin bar. Handmade Mysteries, which works with artists, interior designers, comedy script-writers and musicians, has curated an immersive team game called ‘Lady Chastity’s Reserve’, which challenges pub-goers to attempt to escape a themed room under an hour of theatrical, clue-solving fun.

“We’re really excited to be working with Handmade Mysteries,” says Henry Fairbanks, openings and pipeline director at Bermondsey Pub Company. “The games they have set up in their current sites produce fantastic additional footfall and revenue, and I’m confident with the new offering at The Hope we will see much of the same.

“We aim to create fantastic pub experiences across the Bermondsey Pub Company estate, and working with Handmade Mysteries allows our customers to enjoy something unique, that will enhance their view of the pub and the role it plays.”
