Welcome to Cheshire Cat

Our wonderful pub company was founded by pub and restaurant entrepreneurs Tim Bird and Mary McLaughlin back in 2009.

Tim had previously been a Managing Director with Greenalls PLC, Morrells of Oxford, Eldridge Pope and Brunning and Price, before taking the plunge in to his own business with wife and business partner Mary.

Mary was formerly Managing Director of La Tasca and grew the Spanish restaurant chain from three to over seventy restaurants nationwide. Prior to this, Mary was with both Greenalls and Devenish Pub Companies, having spent her early career with Disney and Harrods.

Cheshire Cat currently operates six award winning pubs. All of which were either closed or on the verge of closure when Tim and Mary came along and rescued them. We enjoy the challenge of restoring beautiful pubs, that many would have considered to be lost causes. There is nothing more important to us all, than a great pub!
