Croeso Pubs Acquires The Dock
Hek Jones Solicitors advised on Croeso Pubs’ acquisition of The Dock, a former Marstons Brains pub in Cardiff Bay.
Originally opened as Terra Nova, The Dock changed its name in 2016 following a £1.25 million refurbishment. Its acquisition adds to Croseo Pubs’ five existing Cardiff venues: The Philharmonic, Brewhouse, Retro, Blue Bell and Daffodil. Former Croeso director Simon Little hailed The Dock’s addition to the company’s roster.
“It is a massive venue that has huge potential, and we can’t wait to get it open again and return it to its rightful place as the number one venue in Cardiff Bay,” Little said in a statement. “We are offering all former staff members their jobs back, as well as creating around 20 more full-time and part-time positions. The Dock will be open for breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner using local fresh produce with a menu created by our very own executive chef Jamie Newman.”
Hek Jones associate and head of commercial property Asif Moghal took the lead on advising on the deal.
