Golden Age for The Prince with Tim at the helm

Tim Shanks

The chance to work for a start-up company running a neighbourhood pub in Stoke Newington was more than Tim Shanks could resist.

The 37-year-old has amassed almost 20 years of experience in pub management, having started as an apprentice with Bass Taverns fresh out of school. He ran pubs with huge capacities in York and Leeds before moving to London and working in Notting Hill and Wandsworth.

“I saw an advert in The Caterer for someone to run The Prince and it sounded like the right fit for me”, said Tim. “I had been working in big companies and this grabbed me because it was a start-up. I had lived in Stokey before for four years, so I knew the area well.”
