Liberation and Butcombe – ‘Phase 3′

Phase 1 of Butcombe Brewery was under Simon and Maureen Whitmore; they started the brewery in 1978 and turned what was at the time our only brand – Butcombe Bitter – into an iconic and popular local brew. Phase 2 of Butcombe, under Guy & Becky Newell, began with the purchase of Butcombe and its 6 freehold pubs in 2003 and saw our cask beer volume double and our pub estate grow selectively to 19 beautiful pubs and also saw the addition of great new permanent and seasonal cask beers, keg beers, the creation and huge growth of our bottled beer business, the creation of our own cider brand in Ashton Press Cider and a burgeoning wholesale business.

The Pig & Fiddle - Bath

2, Saracen Street, Bath, BA1 5BR
Tel: 01225 460868
Manager: Alex Gough


The Pig is The Pig is The Pig, it's a one off. Everyone in Bath old enough to drink knows the Pig and they have probably passed many happy summer evenings drinking with friends in our beer garden.

Six hand pulled local real ales and ciders, plus a great range of lagers, wines and spirits make it a place worth finding, but it's the staff and the customers that are the real stars. Despite only being 20 years old The Pig feels like a proper pub, all are welcome, as long as you know how to behave. We work hard at generating an atmosphere that does not attract trouble.
