Greene King is a leading pub and brewing company with a proud heritage. We started as a small brewing business in 1799, based in the Suffolk market- town of Bury St Edmunds and have been brewing award-winning ales ever since. We brew some of the best-known and best-loved beers in the UK, including Greene King IPA, Old Speckled Hen and Abbot Ale. Over the last 200+ years we have continued to develop and expand significantly and have successfully acquired other brands and companies such as Old English Inns, Belhaven, Loch Fyne and most recently Spirit. Greene King now runs over 3000 managed, tenanted, leased and franchised pubs, restaurants and hotels. You will find us in cities, towns and villages across England, Scotland and Wales. We operate three main business sectors: • Retail (Managed Pubs), including Hungry Horse, Farmhouse Inns, Eating Inn, Old English Inns, Loch Fyne, Belhaven and Local Pubs. • Pub Partners (Tenanted and Leased Pubs) • Brewing & Brands (Cask Ale & Premium Ale Brewing) We are focussed on delivering exceptional value, genuine service and consistent quality to all of our customers and this drives everything we do. Essentially, we want them to experience authentic hospitality and come away thinking that their time with us has been well spent.
