Pubs Of Distinction – EBM

Pubs of Distinction was developed to bring a contemporary flavour to the traditional pub without losing the “eternal values” associated with the great British Pub, the principal one being top class hospitality. Therefore, serving craft beer just as they would in the old beer houses of the mid-18th and 19th centuries formed the core proposition for the local beer house concept. Allied to this was a desire to produce fresh quality food that could be enjoyed by a range of customers in pleasant modern environments. The previous point of sale system relied upon manual processes from managers on site to present area managers and directors with sales information, often delayed by a week or more. Fast changing craft beer selection meant the managers found it difficult to maintain an accurate product listing.
