Our Values


At Stonegate, our FIRST values are the fundamental principles and beliefs that guide our behaviour and decision-making. They define what we stand for and how we conduct ourselves. They serve as a moral compass, helping to steer us in the right direction, and provide a framework for our actions.


“Having been with the business for 12 years, I feel like Stonegate is in my blood. Friends often ask me why I love it so much. I think it boils down to the simple fact that our job is to give our guests a great time – to make them feel better when they leave our pubs, bars and venues than they did when they walked in. To make this happen, we have to be having fun – which is one of our values – and I can honestly say that I manage to have fun every day at Stonegate. Put this together with our unrivalled commitment to developing our amazing people, and you have the recipe for a fantastic business”
