We’ve been running pubs and brewing beer in one form or another for over 180 years. Now we’ve got 13,000 people working for us and many more in partnership with us, and they all share our passion!

Our people; from the brewery teams, to the distribution fleet, to every single team member in our pubs, have helped us to become a thriving company.

We have over 1,500 pubs that range from traditional locals to family pub restaurants and fashionable town centre bars. While pubs may have changed a lot over the years, the reason people use them hasn’t. The pub is where we go to socialise, celebrate, commiserate, relax, reflect, regroup or simply enjoy a cold beer or a bite to eat at the end of a long day.
