Worldpay Makes Payments Quick and Easy for Queen's Head Case Study


July 15, 2019

From cash to contactless: Worldpay makes payments quick and easy.

The Queen’s Head in Wokingham is an award-winning pub in the sleepy Berkshire market town. Self-styled as the “friendliest pub in Wokingham,” it was named Pub of the Year by the local branch of CAMRA three times in the past five years. Landlady Carol Williams leases the premises from Greene King, a brewing giant founded over 200 years ago in 1799. Today the firm is one of the largest companies of its kind in Britain, running over 2,900 pubs, restaurants, and hotels throughout the country.

I’m taking more card payments through Worldpay than I do in cash. It’s tremendous. It’s so quick and easy, much quicker than cash.

Serving the hospitality sector

Worldpay has been working with hospitality businesses for over 20 years and supports many of the high street’s biggest names. Over that time, we’ve developed and honed our service for landlords and hospitality business owners.

Among the key benefits of Worldpay’s offering for pubs, bars, and restaurants are its portable card machines, which enable staff to take payments wherever the customers are, in or around the premises. The Ingenico iWL250 chosen by Carol offers acceptance for all major debit and credit cards, as well as contactless and smartphone payments via Apple Pay, Android Pay, and Samsung Pay. This offers customers a wide choice to ensure payment is fast and friction-free, and there’s a Worldpay price plan to suit different businesses.
