By | Inception Group, News

Inception Group is delighted to announce our fifth award of 2020 so far! Last night, we were named ‘Best Late Night Operator’ in the UK at The Publican Awards 2020. Honouring excellence within the pubco sector and judged by a panel of hospitality experts, these prestigious awards represent the pinnacle of success within the industry, and we’re thrilled to be recognised alongside the other esteemed finalists, Stonegate Pub Company and The Deltic Group. 

This is our second Publican Award, following our largest brand, Mr Fogg’s, winning the ‘Best Pub Brand/Concept’ award last year (2019). Inspired by Jules Verne’s fictional character, Phileas J. Fogg, in his novel Around the World in Eighty Days, the Mr Fogg’s collection doubled in size to six venues across London in 2018, and with more on the horizon, the Mr Fogg’s brand continues to go from strength to strength.

Charlie Gilkes & Duncan Stirling, Inception Group Co-Founders

On winning the award, Charlie Gilkes, Co-Founder of Inception Group says:

“We were so honoured to win our first Publican Award last year for Mr Fogg’s, and to receive a second this year, but this time for our whole estate, feels incredibly special. We are hugely proud of all the distinct brand concepts within our collection, and it is great to be able to share this accolade with all the brands and teams. With 11 sites across our estate, we are acutely aware that within the pub industry we’re considered a small player, so to be recognised for standing-out amongst the pub giants, is a great achievement for us.”

Having won for Mr Fogg’s in 2018, we were extremely excited to have not one, but TWO of our brands shortlisted again for the ‘Best Social Media Presence of the Year’ award in the Class Bar Awards 2020. Both Mr Fogg’s and Cahoots had made the final three for their outstanding social media.

Waiting eagerly to hear the results, the team was overjoyed when Cahoots’ name was called!

See why Class Bar chose Cahoots as their winner for ‘Best Social Media Presence 2020’:

“With the creative use of cinemagraphs, videos, gifs and cleverly-styled vintage photography, Cahoots showcases its offering, not least its fantastic cocktail serves, seamlessly to the digital sphere.” – Class Bar Awards 2020
