From the day Peter and his partner Li took over The Gardeners Call in the High Town area of Luton in February 2008, it was clear they had their work cut out. The pub was clearly on its last legs having been neglected for a number of years.
Since then, the pub has gone from strength to strength, introducing numerous teams that play out of the pub, currently there are 2 pool teams, 2 darts teams and Sunday football team.
Having installed a full Sports package into the pub, the pub can now show several sports/games simultaneously on different screens.

The pub now boasts some of the finest food around, with both Chinese & Thai specialities to compliment good old pub grub, it also boasts between 4-5 different Real Ale's at any one time so there is plenty of variety, along with a good selection of lagers, ciders and stouts.
The pub was also recognised as the Herald & Posts "Pub Of The Year" in 2010.
The pub is known for its charity work to, hosting several music nights for charities such as Help For Heroes, Clic Sargent and The Karen Trust and locally for the Keech Hospice.
