A message from Mark Davies, CEO, Hawthorn Leisure, 18th March ‘20:

The Coronavirus presents an unprecedented challenge for the pub sector. We know that no two pubs are the same and they reflect the community hubs, neighbourhood locations, or villages that they are a part of, and every pub is facing a different challenge.
