When it comes to eating and drinking out, we're one of the leading companies in the UK. Our brands are highly visible, so being at the forefront of good corporate practice is vital to our business. As a result, maintaining high corporate social responsibility values is something we take very seriously.
We know we have a duty to ensure the responsible operation of all our businesses for our guests, employees and the wider community. We also understand the importance of building strong working relationships with suppliers, employees, neighbours and government bodies.
