Greene King invests over £900,000 in Hive Pub

Greene King Pub Partners has invested £940,000 in its latest Hive Pub, the Victoria in Thurston, Suffolk.

The location reopened on Thursday, December 8 under Greene King’s Lease, Lease and Franchise Division. The investment was the largest ever made by the Pubco at a Hive pub location.

David and Natasha Riggs will run the pub after stepping down from their positions as JD Wetherspoon’s veteran pub managers.

The new franchisees said: “Having run successful pubs, we wanted to take the next step and run our own pub business.

“With the low running costs, combined with guaranteed income and the full support of Greene King, going into franchise was the obvious way to achieve our dream.”

The pub’s garden has been upgraded with beach huts, covered outdoor seating and wooden furniture. Outside there is now also a bar and service.
