Since launching the independent bar group only four years ago and now home to No 11 Pimlico Road, No 32 The Old Town, No 1 Duke Street and No 197 Chiswick Fire Station, Mel’s vision has been to create a modern interpretation of a 21st century pub, innovative in design, local and independent and indicative of the area, serving drinks and seasonal food all day. 

As part of the process, Mel has featured in a video talking about the business and the growth story of Darwin & Wallace…
