Dark Horse Taverns

On the instrucons of Dark Horse Taverns, Pub Innsite is solely retained to source high street or suburban free of e leasehold pubs to build on their existing highly successful site at the Prince of Wales Moseley.


Keith Marsden brings a wealth of experience to his new venture Dark Horse Taverns. A background in international brand management for the Coca-Cola Company, Management Consulting for PwC and years spent working for some of the world's leading multi-site retailers have already helped him transform The Prince of Wales into a great business. This former wet led local, on a tied lease in suburban Birmingham, is now a leading destination across the region, generating £1.2m in net sales. Innovative marketing, good social media skills and strong operating systems have used specialist spirits, Tiki Beach Bar, cocktails, cigars and wine sales to create and deliver a compelling offer.

It's quirky, its different, it works. With a good team in place and a selection of retail concepts ready to go, its now time to grow the business. Dark Horse Taverns has funds available to refurbish and invest in suitable sites NOW.
