We’re Roche Communications. For 21 years, we’ve been helping put British eating and drinking culture on the map.
As one of London’s leading specialist PR and marketing agencies working exclusively for bars, restaurants, hotels and pubs, we’ve been communicating British hospitality to the media since 1993. Back then eating and drinking out didn’t have a great reputation. Now it’s got a fantastic status, nationally and internationally. We’re proud to have played a part in that evolution.
We’re different to most PR companies. Air kissing, Alice bands, lots of lunches? Not so much.
We’re the hard-working face of PR, and we strive to ensure our clients don’t just get visibility at launch, but benefit from sustained media coverage over the long term. Click here to find out more.
