Founded in 2015, Ormsborough Ltd is building an estate of pubs and bars across Northern England. Ormsborough's sites are branded under either the 'Potting Shed Bar and Gardens' or 'Firepit Smokehouse and Sports Bar' concepts, both centering on high-quality food and beverage offerings in a contemporary setting.
To date, the company has acquired six sites, of which five are trading and one is in development. Downing-managed funds recently provided £2.5 million of debt to support the continued expansion of the estate: Ormsborough has purchased two new sites in West Yorkshire which will be substantially redeveloped over the next six months. A third site is also in the pipeline.
