Following 17 years of independent ownership Mitchells and Butlers have called time on The Engineer as we know it. Abigail Osborne and Tamsin Olivier held the lease of the pub from 1994 until October 2011. Despite a campaign to keep the pub under independent operation, a petition with nearly 10,000 signatures, local outrage and coverage in local and national press Mitchells and Butlers refused to renew Abi and Tam’s lease. They have reoccupied the pub and intend run it themselves as part of their estate of over 1000 sites. A FTSE250 company, Mitchells and Butlers operate many high street brands including O’Niell’s, Harvester, Browns, All Bar One and Toby Carvery.
However Abi and Tam have recently opened The Hampshire Hog in West London and would be delighted if as many loyal supporters as possible would consider coming over to see us. If you wish to be diverted to our website please click here.
Many thanks. We look forward to seeing you at The Hog!
