Founded in 2015, Ormsborough Ltd is building an estate of pubs and bars across Northern England. The company is backed by Downing-managed funds in partnership with Leeds-based operator Burning Night Group.
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.
