About us

The Love Your Pub Group was originally founded in October 2015 by David Bevan after previously working in the UK hospitality sector.

Having worked for Diageo PLC, Waverley TBS and Heineken UK for over 10 years, David found himself at a crossroads in his life. He decided he wanted to run his own business in the industry and move away from the corporate world.

The idea of Love Your Pub was created.

We work with many of the UK’s largest pub companies and regional brewers. The Love Your Pub Group now has over 1 million users and 30,000 social media followers, making it the largest online hospitality route to market in the UK.

From the offset, The Love Your Pub Group’s business model was designed to evolve and eventually reach different market areas.

We understand exactly how the hospitality sector works, including all the major routes to the market. Throughout our extensive networking, we are proud to have built our unique direct account database.

From starting in Dave’s back bedroom, the business has now diversified to offices in Hampshire. Dave along with an incredible team, now supports the company’s multiple projects across the country.

Happy clients

The Love Your Pub group has been a pleasure to work with, they truly understand the local element of a business and execute this so well. The marketing campaigns, photography and videos tutorials of the venues, are of such high quality and are to a consistent standard (you would expect to spend a fortune to receive the end product you’re left with). Great first year working with LYPG and we will continue the partnership moving forward!

From the minute I met Dave and he introduced me to his business love your pub I knew I was in great hands. Straight away the reach to the public had a positive impact. If ever I had an issue in any area of my business that I wanted some advice or just to chat through Dave was the person I would instantly turn to. Promoting my business and even providing the most amazing photos of our food and venue are no longer a worry as love your pub look after this for me. The love your pub group offer outstanding value for all the work they have done with my business. Thank you Dave for all the support.

Love Your Pub has been very helpful for us as a new business just starting out, providing us with extra support and helping us to get our brand and name out there. Personally I love the design of the website as its very easy to search for bars and see the main features of each venue. Dave is always there for any advice and new ideas always keeping in contact and prompting me to publish and advertise more which I find a “Godsend” as I sometimes find myself consumed in other tasks. The company have also taken some fantastic photos of our bar and dishes for the menus. We are very glad to be part of The Love Your Pub Group”

Love Your Pub can communicate about what’s happening in REAL time within our kitchens to a wider audience specifically in the city that we trade in which in turn enables customers to come visit us and try something new and exciting from our menus. Its been fantastic to have bookings as a result of The Love Your Pub Group particularly over the Christmas period.”
