Hall & Woodhouse Ltd

Established in 1777 in the heart of Dorset, Hall & Woodhouse is a seventh generation, family owned, independent company leading the UK market in brewing and hospitality.

Hall & Woodhouse was founded by Charles Hall, a Dorset farmer, who opened a Brewery in the village of Ansty. More than 60 years later, his son Robert made his nephew, Edward Woodhouse, a partner and Hall & Woodhouse was born.

The company’s hand-picked collection of circa 200 characterful public houses offers warm hospitality to guests, aimed to make them feel at home in their home. They reach from Devon in the west to Brighton in the East, around London and across the south of England.

Their award-winning range of Badger beers are stocked nationally in leading supermarkets and exclusively in their pub estate.

Hall & Woodhouse is a values-led business where the team is part of the family and the family is part of the team. This is deemed its most precious asset, all working to provide a quality offering aimed to ‘make people’s day’, a celebratory objective that underpins everything Hall & Woodhouse does.
