Our Awards

Excellence in brewing and pubs

We’ve been brewing quality beer and running great pubs since 1874, and we’re proud to have been recognised for doing a good job of it.

But we’re not ones to sit on our laurels. Every day is an adventure for us – a new challenge, a new opportunity to surprise our customers (and even ourselves). Maybe that’s why we’ve been rewarded so much over the years.
