Many people are now able to work from home for one or more days per week. However, for some people there may be advantages to work from a third party site. Recently, there has been a trend for pubs to offer work facilities with table space, refreshments and wifi etc.. [Pub Desks were featured in a BBC News post on 11 October.]
The Newbury, 137 Bartholomew Street, Newbury is the first pub in West Berkshire to offer a daily ‘package deal’ for people wanting to work from the pub.
