Why Us

In the beginning

1978, Butcombe Brewing Co. began.

It was a time of cultural, social and political change, sound tracked by bands full of spit and anger riding the crest of the punk wave. Margaret Thatcher took the Tory leadership, the IRA waged war, the Yorkshire Ripper cast a long shadow over the North and the meaning of life was revealed as the number 42.

We shut out the world and made beer

We’re made of different stuff at Butcombe.

We’re an eclectic bunch of passionate people, all brought together by our love of food, drink and service.

We all share a passion of creating warm, hospitable pubs. Every last one of them is individually unique and proud to pull a pint of our famous beer. We get the greatest buzz from seeing customers enjoying the food and drink we’ve made and served with love.

Everything we do is from the heart

Does the idea of working in one of the most vibrant industries in the UK appeal to you? Do you love the idea of being your own boss but having the support of a trusted partner?
