Dog and Partridge gets its traditional pub sign back

The Suffolk brewer Greene King has today started to change the signs at some of its re-branded pubs back to their original look.

Greene King has changed the sign at Bury St Edmund’s Dog and Partridge pub to the original pictorial pub sign.

Richard Lewis, managing director of Greene King’s local pubs division, said: “The change to the new Flame Grill branding has generally been very well received by our customers.

"However, we do accept that the changes may not be right in all 85 of our Flame Grill pubs and as a result we are looking again at the pictorial signs at some of the more historic pubs.

“We are passionate about our pubs and it is heartening that the local community appears to be just as passionate.”
