Warwick welcomes new botanical destination dining concept No. 34 Garden & Grill

EMPR was delighted to be brought on board to promote the launch of a brand new botanical dining destination in Warwick. 

No. 34 Garden & Grill opened its doors on Thursday (March 3rd) after transforming the former Racehorse pub on Stratford Road into a unique bar and restaurant for Warwickshire.

No. 34

A launch night opened by the Mayor of Warwick welcomed hundreds of people from the local community and further afield for a first look at the new destination dining venue for the town.

The venue is the brainchild of Jonathan Carter-Morris and Marc Hornby, who run Kenilworth’s oldest pub, the Virgins & Castle, as well as award-winning catering business Caviar & Chips and Shropshire-based boutique wedding venue Stockton House.

The ambition for No. 34 was for a “botanical dining destination”, featuring plants and flowers to give a feeling of bringing the outdoors in, as well as offering a menu that is half plant-based and vegetarian, with the other half celebrating British farming and sustainable fishing – reflected in the name Garden & Grill.

EMPR was commissioned to help promote the launch, including drafting of a press release, distribution, invites to the launch as well as influencer outreach and any review opportunities afterwards. The launch was covered by local media as well as nationally by Big Hospitality, who also included No. 34 in their list of openings to look out for across the UK in March.

No 34 media coverage

Local coverage included Coventry Live, Kenilworth Nub News, the Warwick Courier and more, and the launch night was attended by bloggers from across the Midlands including Bab About Town, Small House Big Trips and FoodieLouTravels.

Post launch, further coverage was gained in the Warwick Courier, and No. 34 was also reviewed by Muddy Stilettos and several local bloggers, including vegan-focused Kesh Kitchen.

No 34 media coverage EMPR continues to work with the team behind No. 34 to raise its profile, including a visit from a journalist from Life Magazine, the signature magazine of the Guild of Property Professionals.
