We’re Roche Communications. For 21 years, we’ve been helping put British eating and drinking culture on the map.
As one of London’s leading specialist PR and marketing agencies working exclusively for bars, restaurants, hotels and pubs, we’ve been communicating British hospitality to the media since 1993. Back then eating and drinking out didn’t have a great reputation. Now it’s got a fantastic status, nationally and internationally. We’re proud to have played a part in that evolution.
We’re different to most PR companies. Air kissing, Alice bands, lots of lunches? Not so much.
We’re the hard-working face of PR, and we strive to ensure our clients don’t just get visibility at launch, but benefit from sustained media coverage over the long term. Click here to find out more.
Bohemian Style is Coming to the Dials:

Located in the vibrant Seven Dials village near Covent Garden, the 60-cover café will offer breakfast, brunch, lunch, supper and late-night dining with a café style approach.
THE FOUR SISTERS TOWNHOUSE — COMING SOON TO THE CITY
Opening June 2016, The Four Sisters Townhouse is the second addition to owners Simon Bastable and Andrew Green’s ‘The Four Sisters’ portfolio, which already includes The Four Sisters Bar in Islington.

A ROYAL WELCOME TO THE RE-LAUNCH OF THE PRINCE ALBERT
A regal refurbishment has transformed The Prince Albert in Battersea into the perfect destination for locals and Londoners heading south of the river, with a total overhaul of the upstairs dining area The Bridge Room, including the addition of an antique book library.
A royally themed makeover greets visitors to this Geronimo Inns pub. Elegant cardinal red accents give the space an air of sophistication, highlighted by grandiose lighting fixtures, quirky animal portraits, including a huge sculpture of a horned bull, whilst natural light comes from the tall Victorian windows overlooking Battersea Park.

Geronimo Inns has opened The Guard House, a brand new pub at Woolwich Arsenal, with a fresh all day, every day offer for nearby residents and workers, in a building that dates back to the late 18th century.
