Bermondsey Pub Company launches immersive ‘panic room’

02/11/2017 - 12:16
Part of Ei Group’s managed operations, the Bermondsey Pub Company has launched an interactive escape room at its Farringdon-based pub, The Hope, with the aim of “creating fantastic pub experiences.”

Created in partnership with escape room curator, Handmade Mysteries, the immersive team game ‘Lady Chastity's Reserve’ challenges visitors to “escape a themed room under an hour of theatrical, clue-solving fun.”

Henry Fairbanks, openings and pipeline director, said: “We’re really excited to be working with Handmade Mysteries. The games they have set up in their current sites produce fantastic additional footfall and revenue, and I’m confident with the new offering at The Hope we will see much of the same.

“We aim to create fantastic pub experiences across the Bermondsey Pub Company estate, and working with Handmade Mysteries allows our customers to enjoy something unique, that will enhance their view of the pub and the role it plays. “

Co-owner of Handmade Mysteries, James Addy, added: “We are really excited to be doing what we hope to be the first of many game rooms with such a high profile national pub operator. These types of partnerships deliver a real win-win, as we get great spaces to put our games in, whilst attracting new customers to the pub who come to play then stay, eat and drink.

“The Hope is a great space, due to its city location, which helps attract pub goers looking for a different kind of experience with friends.”

Priced at £20 per person, the room is open Wednesday-Sunday and can host up to six people at once. Tickets available via:
