As the country’s leading pub company and brewer, we welcome our customers through our doors and brew our iconic range of well-loved crafted ales every day.


We are the country’s leading pub company and brewer, running over 2,700 pubs, restaurants and hotels in towns, villages and city-centre high streets across England, Wales and Scotland.

It’s our rich heritage of more than 200 years that has taught us how to brew award-wining beer and operate pubs from our base in Bury St. Edmunds ever since the company was founded in 1799 by 19 year-old Benjamin Greene.

As a company, we pride ourselves on consistently offering exceptional value, service and quality to all our customers. This ethos is central to everything we do in our business: the products that we offer, the ales that we brew, the affordable prices that we charge, the team members who serve our customers and the atmosphere of our pubs, restaurants and hotels.


We want to be considered by our customers, team members and shareholders as the best pub company in Britain. To help us get there, we split our business into three key sections: Pub Company, Pub Partners and Brewing & Brands.

Pub Company

Our Pub Company is made up of all the pubs, restaurants and hotels that we manage in England, Scotland and Wales. It includes much-loved brands like Hungry Horse, Chef & Brewer, Farmhouse Inns and Flaming Grill, as well as our Greene King Local pubs. We’re proud that our pubs are places where communities come together. We love seeing our customers relaxing while catching up with friends, watching sport, or even treating the family to a delicious Sunday roast.


“Our Pub Company includes almost 1,700 pubs, restaurants and hotels that we manage in England, Scotland and Wales.”

Serving our customers

We have a wide range of charming hotels and inns, with the unique combination of traditional and modern features. Our customers can enjoy seasonal menus, wines and traditional cask ales from the comfort of our in-house restaurant and bars.


Pub Partners has been helping people run their own pub businesses for more than 200 years. We believe we’ve become one of the UK’s most successful and respected tenanted and leased pub companies because of our two key principles – support and flexibility for all our licensees. Find out more about our range of short-term and long-term options and our wide range of specialist support services to help licensees run successful pubs.


“We support around 1,050 pub partners – or licensees – in running their own successful businesses.”

Supporting our licensees


We operate two breweries. Westgate Brewery is in our hometown of Bury St. Edmunds and Belhaven Brewery, in Dunbar, which was formed in 1719 and is Scotland’s oldest working brewery and the home of Belhaven Best.

“Through constant innovation, we’ve taken the traditional art of brewing to new heights, creating what we believe is the finest range of cask and craft ales on the market.”

Brewing great beers

We’ve been the leading cask ale brewer in the UK for many years. We take pride in producing some of the country’s best-loved ales, including Greene King IPA, Old Speckled Hen and Abbot Ale as well as Ruddles, St Edmunds and Olde Trip. No matter the season, our great tasting beers cater for every taste.
