Fuller’s Inns, the London premium pub company, today announced a multi-phase relationship with Harlequins that will deliver significant benefits to Harlequins Members at local Fuller’s pubs. There will be a number of events, all varying in format, across six key Fuller’s pubs, giving Harlequins Members exclusive access to players and coaches. These events will be supported by a series of offers and promotions in the pubs that are exclusive to Members.
The event series starts on 4th December at The Cabbage Patch in Twickenham with an ‘Evening with…’ style event with a number of players, giving attendees the chance to ask any question they like. This intimate evening is limited to an audience of 70 people and tickets are available to Harlequins Members and Fuller’s pub patrons. This will be followed by a series of other events throughout the season allowing Members to get up close and personal with their favourite Harlequins players.
Members will also benefit from exclusive promotions in the six key Fuller’s’ sites – The Cabbage Patch in Twickenham, The Prince Blücher in Twickenham, The Royal Oak in Isleworth, The Turk’s Head in Twickenham, The Prince’s Head in Richmond and The Admiral Nelson in Whitton – that include 15% discount off food and drink (excluding RFU event days and Harlequins home matchdays), kids eating free (accompanied by a bespoke children’s menu), preferential rates on function packages and the chance to win exclusive Fuller’s’ experiences.
Jonathon Swaine, Managing Director of Fuller’s Inns, said: “I am a life-long fan of Harlequins, so it is a privilege for not only Fuller’s Inns but for myself to be associated with this iconic club. Fuller’s pubs have always had an affinity with rugby, with it often being a key reason for our customers to come to our pubs.
“As London’s oldest brewer and with our heart in West London, it is important to us to forge and maintain strong allegiances with the icons on our doorstep. I am looking forward to working closely with Harlequins, this it should be a great partnership for our pubs.”
Imogen Gaunt, Harlequins Head of Marketing and Communications, added: “We are delighted to be teaming up with Fuller’s Inns and to be able to offer these excellent benefits to our loyal Members as well as welcome members of the Fuller’s family to Harlequins.
“Both Harlequins and Fuller’s Inns have a long history in London, with a particular local focus and we’re looking forward to beginning a long relationship together.”
