Our culture,
what's it really like

We’ve been running pubs and brewing beer in one form or another for over 180 years. Now we’ve got around 14,000 people working for 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 FTSE 250 listed company.

We're rightly proud of our heritage - our people, our pubs and our beers. We work hard making sure that everything we do; from the beers we brew, to the pubs they are enjoyed in, and the people that serve them, are always the best that they can possibly be.
