  • It’s our rich heritage of more than 200 years that has taught us how to brew award-winning 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.
