Papa’s Real Pub is a cosy and comfortable space that can host around 70 people and has the atmosphere of a residence clubhouse. The launch placed emphasis on how it will be beneficial to many students who are looking for a pub-like space that offers frequent student specials on food and drinks.
In an interview Nikki Paul, manager and marketing director of Papa’s, explained how the relaunch helped attract students since Hatfield Square has closed. The pub, she continued to say, previously catered for young professionals and older people, and with Hatfield Square’s closure, Papa’s Real Pub now offers an alternative new environment for students and other people alike to relax in.
Paul further added that the relaunch was a success, as it helped in both retaining regular customers and in marketing themselves as a worthy contender with other local pubs and bars.
