Flynn’s Pub & Townhouse: A New Era Dawns

Flynn’s Pub & Townhouse: A New Era Dawns

James Fitzgerald

With highly-rated accommodation and an imminent refurbishment, Flynn’s Pub & Townhouse is a business transformed…

You could say that James Fitzgerald, the tenant of Flynn’s Pub & Townhouse on Dalling Road, has the perfect background for a trade that’s all about people. A qualified psychologist, he practised in Ireland and Canada before deciding that he was better suited to the hospitality industry.

‘I’m one of those who hate nine to five, so I love what I’m doing,’ James admits. ‘Mind you, in this job, sometimes the psychology experience comes in handy!’

Before he took over three years ago, Flynn’s had a chequered reputation. Now the story could not be more different. ‘We’re a friendly team and we’ve really focused on moving on from that old image and create a warm, welcoming atmosphere,’ explains James.

Perhaps nothing reflects Flynn’s impressive re-invention more than its top-rated accommodation. ‘Many people don’t know about our rooms,’ says James. ‘We have 12, and they’re all deluxe doubles or suites. We’re rated in the Top 10 places to stay in London on Booking. com and Expedia and in the Top 20 on TripAdvisor. We’re so proud of that.’

If you’re stuck for space with friends and family coming to visit, James would be delighted to welcome your guests – with a special offer: ‘if you book directly with us rather than online, we’ll give you a 15-20% discount’.

This autumn will see Flynn’s interior and garden area being refurbished and, after that, James will be putting on events such as quiz nights, live band sessions and even art exhibitions in conjunction with the Polish Centre.

The transformation has been hard work, but James is thrilled at the result: ‘Flynn’s now has a great local following, with a mix of ages and lots of families from Brackenbury Village. We’ve got an excellent selection of real ales and craft beers, we’re open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and our traditional Sunday carvery is a big draw. I’m just delighted that we’re becoming a real community centre.’
