Since founder William Nicholson opened his first pub in 1873, Nicholson’s have since gone on to manage pubs in a variety of historic locations. The company’s latest pub, The Observatory, which opens on the 21st of February, marks an exciting, contemporary opportunity for the company. The Observatory will be in Greenwich and situated within London’s The O2. 

Nicholson’s are an established collection of traditional British pubs with 79 sites across the UK. Housed in iconic locations in key cities such as Manchester, Edinburgh, and London. William Prideaux, the Operations Director for Nicholson’s, said ‘We are excited to welcome The Observatory into the Nicholson’s stable.’

In regards to future activity, Prideaux stated ‘This opening marks the start of the next stage of growth for Nicholson’s as we look to grow the estate further. We have identified a number of opportunities where we can evolve the next generation of great British pubs and look forward to bringing these to fruition’.

The Observatory will offer a classic pub experience found nowhere else in The O2, catering for guests looking for the best in British hospitality. The establishment will be serving seasonal pub classics such as fish and chips and award-winning pies, as well as housing an extensive collection of cask ale, gin, and whisky.
