The Family Brewery since 1828
We’re a family business running warm, friendly pubs, inns and hotels. From drinks with friends to family holidays, our pubs and inns are full of life and laughter. But let’s not forget our famous beers and lagers brewed at Greengate, the very heart of JW Lees. Our journey began in 1828, yours can start now.
