Urban Pubs and Bars

Urban Pubs & Bars was founded in 2014 by Nick Pring and Malc Heap. The pair previously co-founded the company Realpubs, which was sold to Greene King in 2011. After the sale, the duo were keen to start another pub company, leading to the creation of Urban Pubs & Bars. The company now has 42 sites spread across London and is led by experienced hospitality chief executive, Chris Hill. The company’s focus on food has resulted in Urban Pubs & Bars being awarded the ‘Best Food-led Pub Company’ at the R200 awards, as well as ‘Best Managed Pub Company (2-50 sites)’ at the Publican Awards.
