At the heart of what’s important

If it’s important to our customers and community, it’s important to us too. We’re proud of the proactive approach our licensees take when it comes to supporting local people, whether this is helping individuals through tough times or showing the whole community that their pub cares.

The Hub of the Community

If you walk into any of our pubs, you are sure to find a licensee that is passionate about their community and the local area they serve.

The pub is a meeting point for clubs and teams to meet and celebrate or commiserate over a few drinks. Likewise, it is the hub of the community offering a friendly welcome for those who seek some company and conversation over a well poured pint.

Serving the Local Area

Community spirit runs through the veins of all our licensees. Running a pub is why they get up in the morning, selfless in their approach to being there to serve their locals in any way they can.

Their talents lie not only in running a good pub, but in being there as a friend, listening to customers and hosting events that bring the local community together to relax and unwind.

Charity Partnerships

Admiral Taverns is proud to support Chasing the Stigma, a national mental health charity that is committed to normalising mental health. Everybody in the world has mental health, so they make it easy to find help whenever you need it, through the Hub of Hope support app.

Through the partnership, we continue to fundraise across our community pubs and, given our national reach, we are uniquely placed to help support those in need across the UK. The partnership also presents our teams with opportunities to volunteer and provide practical help, bringing us even closer to the communities we serve.
