Pubs group recruits hotel veteran

INDEPENDENT Scottish pub group The TBC Pub Company has appointed its first non-executive director.

Christoph Brooke, managing director of Hillbrooke Hotels, which operates a small portfolio of hotels in England, will work with TBC founders Graham and Rachel Bucknall as they grow and develop their business.

The TBC Pub Company currently owns three venues: The Bridge Inn in Ratho, The Ship Inn in Elie and The 19th Hole in Earlsferry.

Graham Bucknall said Brooke’s appointment is  “a real coup for our business”.
