Rachel and Sean Finnegan are General Managers of The Varsity in Coventry and are celebrating 20 years at the pub this month. They started their journey at The Varsity in 2002 and have developed the pub into a welcoming space for guests from all walks of life. The pub is a real community hub, whether it be for drinking, a bite to eat or even board games which offer a bit of competitive fun amongst friends, there is something to get everyone together.
Rachel Finnegan, joint General Manager of The Varsity, said: “This is a wonderful milestone that Sean and I have achieved, I am very proud of how far we and The Varsity have come. The last 20 years have flown by, but they have been amazing. We have made so many memories in the pub that it is hard to pick a favourite. We have been lucky to meet so many lovely people over the years, it is so nice to see the same faces coming back again and again.”
Having been at the pub for two decades, Rachel and Sean have met hundreds of people and made lovely relationships with their customers and pub team. Rachel and Sean are delighted to have been able to support others in their team to develop and progress within the industry as well as maintain contact with those who graduated and perused different careers.
Sean Finnegan, joint General Manager of The Varsity, added: “Myself and Rachel are very proud to have reached 20 years at The Varsity. The pub feels like a home to us, we are as much a part of The Varsity as The Varsity is a part of us. It has been a joy to support individuals in their career progression and see them succeed. We love being able to share our passion for cask ale and great food with our customers, who are always giving our team compliments.”
