The three things which describe Melrose and why they stand out … Helpful, Knowledgeable and Clear Understanding!

- Nathan - Railway Inn, Billingshurst

I have used Melrose for 12 years – all the time I have run my pub in Thornbury they have always been able to answer any queries.

I have a business review with the Account Manager on a regular basis – Jeff is always thorough and has given me sound advice.

The office staff are just amazing in every way; they answer any email or telephone queries as quickly and efficiently as I could ever wish for; the stock taker always arrives on time and carries out the visit without any disruption to service and a report arrives shortly after – suffice to say I would never think of going anywhere else and will continue to use them and will highly recommend them to others.

- Sandra - Swan Inn, Thornbury

Great accountants especially Mike - I've been using Melrose since November 21 and I have had no issues at all

The team are very friendly and thorough and are extremely quick in processing everything cannot fault 😊

- Chelsie Barratt - Wye Inn, Hereford

Fantastic. Knowledgeable, helpful and always professional. I would highly recommend Melrose. They really help your business operate smoothly.

- Rhys - Golden Lion

Having been in the pub / restaurant industry as a mixed owner of 13 properties, we as a company have used Melrose as a company to do all our accounting needs and advice. We have always found them to be very professional and honest with all our needs as multiple owners.

Highly recommend them as a company.

- David J Belcher - Tippling Philosopher

We engaged the services of Melrose in December 2021, since then we haven't looked back with support in payroll and accounts.

Highly recommended for the hospitality businesses. Our client manager Mike Jones is always on hand to support with solutions and assistance.

- Rob - The Halfway Pub & Restaurant, Llanelli

I have had the pleasure of dealing with Melrose since before we opened in July 2021. Their information and advice pre-opening made the whole experience seamless and stress-free and always available to take my calls.

Nowhere along the journey did I feel I wasn't supported by a great team. From training courses to accounts & payroll, they provide a friendly, professional service and nothing is too much trouble.

I couldn't recommend them highly enough and will readily continue to use their services.
Thank you Melrose.

- D. Richards - The Old Bank Hotel

 Gill is being a diamond to me at this time and the information off Melrose has been priceless.

- Brian Rees - The Reverend James, Swansea

Thank you for your updates, it’s great in case we miss anything the guidance you have all given has been great and very helpful.

-Theresa Pownall - Elm Tree, Hanham

Over the past 8 months, during this difficult time, I’ve been working with a great team of helpers that have been there whenever I need to ask silly little questions!

They’ve been amazing thank you Caroline, Louise & Katy!! 😊😊

- Luke Tappin - South Western Arms, Southampton

Thank you and Melrose for your prompt and excellent service

- Mick Gillis - Australian Arms, Ramsgate

This is my first time running a business and all I can say is a big thankyou to these guys ! They have been a great help with some silly questions I've had regarding pay role or even just everyday accounting. Mike is fabulous and pops in to see me to give me any advice I might require. The app for invoices and receipts is a god send makes it so easy to keep on top of things. I would defiantly recommend to anyone

- Louise Bushell

Great accountants and very supportive of the Pub industry! Wouldn't use anyone else

-Pour Moore Drinks Ltd

Really pleased with the service I receive with Melrose. Simple systems that are modern and easy to use, thorough reporting and most importantly, knowledgeable, friendly and easy to get hold of. Mark Winchcombe was great at the outset with business plan writing, budgeting and industry relevant advice and very happy with his ongoing support. I didn't compare costs to elsewhere as their service spoke for itself.

-Helen Hay

The whole team are so lovely and helpful! Mark is 5*! As a new business owner he has helped me with all questions big and small! He is happy to share his knowledge from all his experiences!

-Stacie Lynch

Have used for ten years plus, would thoroughly recommend.

-Rob Bass

We've been with melrose for 6 years now since setting up the pub and can honestly say dealing with Mike Jones has been great. He answers messages even out of hours and always takes time to explain and check things for us and pops to see us when need any further help.

-Kirsty-Marie Smith

Being new to the industry, I’ve found Mark Winchcombe to be not only knowledgeable but friendly and approachable.

Nothing seems too much for Mark and he is always on the end of the phone when/if needed.
I’m so glad we chose Melrose and it’s a pleasure to have Mark on board!

-Joe Prewer

My dealings with Mark Winchcombe from the Melrose Group has been fantastic. He has shown me patience, kindness and a real understanding of what I need and what my business needs so this has been extremely helpful in setting up my new pub venture. I have found the team helpful when telephoning in to the office and I am looking forward to my association with them.
