Inside|Outside – A £1M outdoor investment scheme launched by independent pub operator, Punch Pubs & Co, to support their pubs in preparing for outdoor reopening in April.
Outdoor spaces such as beer gardens, patios and courtyards have never been so important in the world of pubs. Inside|Outside is an investment programme specifically designed to help Punch Publicans to maximise the opportunity of trading safely outside whilst complying with Government guidance.
The success of the scheme will allow many pubs to open outdoors on the 12th of April, including plenty that previously would have not had the capacity. This has contributed to a fantastic total of 662 (72%) Punch pubs in England set to welcome guests back to their local on 12th April.
As part of the Publican-led scheme, Punch is investing over one million pounds, transforming hundreds of outdoor spaces nationally, providing a safe space for communities to reconnect and enjoy a pint & a bite to eat, in a space that can be enjoyed all year round.
