ABOUT US – PRESTBURY PARTNERS – NICK & PETE

PRESS ARTICLE WHEN WE FIRST OPENED IN 2006

Friday 19th May 2006 in “Eating Out”
The Prestbury Sports Bar, Warminster

Business partners Nick Pitcher, left, and Pete Bartley in their newly opened Prestbury Sports Bar in Warminster (31818-1). If you don’t want to miss a thing during England’s World Cup matches, then Prestbury Sports Bar in Warminster has the perfect solution – plasma screen TVs in the loos! The sports bar, tucked away in The Close, opened on Friday, just in time for the FA Cup Final and the European Champions League final on Wednesday. Owner Nick Pitcher said: “We rushed to get it open for all the big sports events.”
The bar also has table football, two competition-sized pool tables and Mr Pitcher says he is thinking about starting pool tournaments in the future. For people who aren’t such keen sports fans there is a lounge area, which can be closed off from the main bar, with a jukebox linked up to the screen so people can watch music videos at the same time.
The bar has a three-metre by two-metre projection screen in the main area and two further plasma screens in the lounge. Mr Pitcher has a wealth of experience in the bar trade, having previously managed The Rose and Crown in Warminster, Capone’s and Pulse in Trowbridge, Oscar’s in Longleat and Pub Club UK in Glastonbury. He said: “I am at the stage in my life where I can do something I want to do, not just do it for the money.” He got together with builder, Pete Bartley, to refurbish the old Prestbury Social Club, which had been vacant for six months. He said: “We both love sport, particularly football, and felt there was nothing specific in Warminster for sports fans.”
