  • The Story
At Parogon Group, our journey is one of growth, ambition, and a love for great hospitality.

It all started with a simple vision: to turn iconic landmarks into vibrant dining destinations. From that seed of an idea, we’ve blossomed into something truly special, driven by a team that’s been with us from the start or who share our passion.

 

As pioneers in Staffordshire’s dining scene, we brought a fresh perspective that intrigued our guests and set new standards for excellence. Our commitment to creating unforgettable dining experiences has fuelled our growth and expansion.

 

Parogon Group has become a beloved establishment with venues across Staffordshire, Cheshire, and Shropshire. Along the way, we’ve celebrated significant milestones and achievements, each one adding to our legacy of excellence and innovation.

 

With plans to expand across the UK, we’re excited to continue the next chapter of our story, crafting unforgettable dining experiences for our guests and communities.
