Hall & Woodhouse (H&W) is celebrating a successful first season in Taplow, having welcomed over 50,000 guests through the door since opening in May this year.
The pub has sold over 20,000 pints of Badger beer and over 30,000 meals, including 2,000 Sunday roasts, as thousands of families and friends have made use of the pub’s dining spaces to catch up and experience riverside views.
As H&W’s most expensive new-build property at approximately £6.5m, Taplow has provided a significant investment into the area. Ahead of another busy season, Taplow also plans to continue adding to its 40+ team to support over Christmas and provide jobs for local people.
Jonathan Egerton, Manager at Hall & Woodhouse Taplow, said: “We’ve had such a wonderful reception from the local community at Taplow and we’re all very grateful for the first six months in business. We have certainly enjoyed welcoming the community in for celebration meals, meetings over coffee, or catch-ups by the water in the summer sun. We’ve sold almost a quarter of a tonne of coffee, that’s over 18,000 cappuccinos worth, and 3,000 Aperol Spritz, so it’s evident the terrace has definitely provided a brilliant space to enjoy every hour of the day.
“The success of Taplow so far is a huge testament to our amazing team who make every experience special and unforgettable for our guests. We are also so pleased to have had such a positive reception from the community and look forward to further collaboration in the years to come!”
As part of the bar and restaurant’s integration into the local community, the staff at Hall & Woodhouse Taplow were involved in the company wide charity day on November 14th, where 50% of net sales from the day was donated to mental health charity, Mind, and The British Red Cross Disaster Fund Appeal.
Hall & Woodhouse Taplow is set to round off its first year with a selection of seasonal events for Christmas and New Year. Festive drinks and special cocktails will be available at the bar on Christmas Eve, followed by a Christmas menu on the 25th of December to celebrate the big day with the local community.
