Proper Pubs are the hub
of the community

A Proper Pub is obsessed with the local community.

At Proper Pubs, we are obsessed with the community and run a series of national and local initiatives to support the communities we operate in.

We are 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.

Our Community Heroes love to support local initiatives, local people and use the pub to bring everyone together. Our current community initiative is all our Proper Pubs are raising money to install a defibrillator in the pub for community use, with further initiatives to follow.

There is always something going on in a Proper Pub, and it usually involves the locals. We create a place for people to connect, socialise, and we support the local pub teams and offer traditional games. So like-minded customers can be found around all day.

The Boars Head literally is the heart of the community, everything revolves round here, we have birthdays, we have celebrations, we also have charitable events, and when things happen we all come together as one.”

“It’s all about customers, you know, the pot pourri of personalities that come through the door every day. It’s a great job to be in.

If you walk into a pub, which we all do, and you feel safe, comfortable and there is has a good vibe to it, you’re going to go back to that pub. It’s our job to make sure that everyone has felt welcome and safe when they come in.”
