The Guinea now open in Tunbridge Wells

May 29, 2017 by  

Tunbridge Wells pub, The Guinea, has recently re-opened following a period of closure since the building was purchased by new owners back in February.

Many residents of the town have long been speculating when it would reopen its doors, now they won’t have to wait any longer.

The pub was once called the Guinea Butt, however, it is now simply known as The Guinea under new managers Dania Cianciulli and partner Darren Somerton.

It was originally reported by Kent Live that Gary Mallen had purchased the pub. Mallen owns 12 other pubs and comes with a history of turning failing pubs around. While the pub is perfectly suited to catering for diners, Somerton prefers to retain the feel of a traditional pub so as not to discourage those who wish to have a drink and nothing more. He said:

“We are a pub which serves good food. If people just want to sit and drink that is fine, of if they can grab a table and want to eat there, that’s great.”

The bar serves offers craft beer and national and regional ales, including Amstel Beer, London’s Stout, Caledonian Coast to Coast, and Heineken.

To ensure that the locals are aware that the pub is now open for business, marketing strategies such as poster printing and flyer printing can be implemented.
