Fuller’s faith in London pride

PUB group Fuller, Smith and Turner yesterday posted a five per cent full year revenue rise to £253m and said that its pre-tax profits grew three per cent to £30.3m.

The company said like-for-like sales in accommodation, food and drinks were up by 7.4, 4.5 and four per cent respectively.

While the new year has seen “the most volatile start”, Fuller’s expects its fortunes to change during the Jubilee this weekend.
