The Family Brewery since 1828

Our story began in 1828 with our founder, retired cotton manufacturer, John Lees. We’re based in Middleton in the North West of Manchester and own JW Lees Brewery, JW Lees Pubs, The Alderley Edge Hotel, The Trearddur Bay Hotel and Willoughby’s Wine Merchants. We’re a sixth-generation family business which employs over 1,300 people, 140 at the brewery and site in Middleton Junction and over 1,100 in our 48 Managed Pubs, Inns and Hotels. We also let a further 100 pubs to our Pub Partners. We have pubs in Manchester closeby to our Greengate Brewery, stretching all the way to North Wales.

We’re a sixth-generation family business running warm, friendly pubs, inns and hotels. From drinks with friends to family holidays, our pubs are full of life and laughter. But let’s not forget about our famous beers and lagers that are brewed here at Greengate, the very heart of JW Lees…

We put the brewery at the heart of our business which means when you visit one of our pubs you can enjoy our lagers, cask ales, seasonal beers and Boilerhouse small batch beers.
 
Our beers, wines and spirits from Willoughby’s can be stocked through our Freetrade Sales Team. You can also click the link below to buy our beer in bottle to drink at home.
