Daniel Thwaites Plc

‘Providing superb hospitality in outstanding properties in great locations’

Established in 1807 by a young Daniel Thwaites who left his family’s farm in Cumbria to start a new life for himself, our company has a long history of brewing high quality beers and delivering warm, northern hospitality that has been passed down through the generations.

Daniel Thwaites is based in Lancashire and operates Thwaites Pubs & Brewery as well as the House of Daniel Thwaites, a collective of hotels, inns and spas.

It has developed and grown over the years and now has an estate of 250 tenanted pubs, stretching from Birmingham to Carlisle and North Wales to Yorkshire – yet it has always remained true to its brewing roots and has recently invested in a new brewery in the Ribble Valley.

Our northern roots and honest straight-dealing is reflected through our teams who support all areas of the business to be a success, including tenanted pub customers.

Our award-winning brewers share the same passion for beer that Daniel Thwaites did over 200 years ago, brewing a range of traditional ales and newer craft beers that are all distributed exclusively to the company’s pubs, inns and hotels.

Run a pub with Thwaites

We have a range of flexible tenancy agreements in our tenanted pub business and are always looking for the right partners to work with.

We offer a tailored approach to complement each individual’s business plan and personal criteria, so it doesn’t matter whether you’re an experienced operator, a multi-site operator or an entrepreneur who is completely new to the industry, we have an approach to support your success.

Partnerships come with unrivalled support which includes a dedicated Area Business Manager, as well as support from marketing executives, a food development team, drinks expertise, property and maintenance team – and even our famous Shire Horses.

Each new tenanted customer has access to our induction training, which is tailored to suit their level of experience and there are additional courses to improve your wider skills and keep tenants ahead with industry knowledge.

Thwaites' prize-winning business attracts some of the best entrepreneurs in the industry and we are committed to the continual improvement of our estate, backing driven operators to successfully build their own businesses. In the last three years £10m has been invested in tenanted properties, which is reflected in the quality of our pubs.
