About Brakspear

At Brakspear, we’re passionate about great pubs. Our family has been running pubs for over 200 years and, while many things have changed in that time, the pub remains at the heart of British life. Today, as ever, it offers great food, great drink, and a place to enjoy the company of others - friends, family or fellow-drinkers.

We're lucky to have beautiful pubs but we think it’s the people inside, running the pub who matter, and that means we do things differently at Brakspear. We are still family owned and run, which means we make all our decisions for the long term benefit of our company, our pub tenants and our pub customers.

We think you’ll notice that difference, whichever side of the bar you’re standing, whether you’re popping in for a quick pint, or partnering with us to run one of our 132 wonderful rural, community or town centre pubs. We look forward to welcoming you soon.

The start of Brakspear

1711 - The start of Brakspear

In 1711 William Henry Brakspear decided beer was the future and bought a brewery on Bell Street, Henley on Thames. In 1769, nineteen year old Robert Brakspear, became the pub landlord of the Cross Keys, Witney and it's from here Brakspear Bitter was born and started being brewed. At this point many people were enjoying Brakspear Bitter, so they needed to move to a bigger brewery and moved to the Henley brewery.

Moving the brewery

1812 - Moving the brewery

In 1812 Robert passed away and the brewery moved round the corner from Bell Street to New Street in Henley and had 34 pub leases and Robert's second son, William Henry, joined the business. William became a partner in 1825, and was sole proprietor by 1848 and began trading as W.H. Brakspear. William worked tirelessly to expand the company acquiring more beerhouses and malthouses, before passing away in 1882. William Henry had success within the town; he was mayor of Henley four times, a justice of the peace and an alderman, a very well respected man within the community.

Two hundred years later

1896 - Two hundred years later

William Henry's sons Archibald and George had become partners before their father's death. This marked the move from the family as the managers to them just being the owners but they did introduce a new coopers shop in 1886 and new brewhouse in 1892. In 1896 Brakspear's bought out their main local rival, the Grey's Brewery. As keen sports fans, they also joint founded Henley Cricket Club in 1869 which still remains today. Archibald passed away in 1909. The Henley Standard, a local newspaper that he helped found and are still around today, said of him that he retained the respect, admiration and esteem of the whole community among whom he lived.

Not just pubs

1913 - Not just pubs

After his father's death Archibald Roswell became chairman until his death in 1933. Ronald, son of George, and his brother F.G. Brakspear were also on the board. It's fair to say these members of the family weren't as business-minded as their fathers and things began to drift. More time was spent at Henley United Rowing Club and at Henley Golf Course than worrying about business. John Chalcraft joined the company in 1914, becoming head brewer, then managing director in 1928 for a staggering 41 years until 1969 and later the first company chairman who was not a member of the family. He remained as chairman until 1974.

New to the board

1963 - New to the board

John's son Michael was a keen brewer and joined the board in 1963 where he remained until 1996. In this time, many pubs were bought that still make up the Brakspear pub estate today. By 1979 Brakspear had 130 pubs, as well as some free houses but then began a period of rationalisation. 20 years later the pub estate was just over 100. A new distribution yard was opened in 1986, but otherwise there was little change with the brewery until production ceased in 2002.

The start of J.T. Davies and Sons

1875 - The start of J.T. Davies and Sons

In 1875 John Thomas Davies moved to London, from Llanarthly, Wales, and borrowed money to build The Mansfield pub, which is now known as the Gospel Oak. In 1913 John died, after building another 11 pubs. These 12 pubs passed to his son Alfred, who formed the limited company J.T. Davies & Sons ltd. Alfred increased the number of pubs to 64 managed pubs in London and the South East, with most of them leased from breweries. Alfred was elected MP for Lincoln in 1918 - 1924 and was knighted too. In 1913 Sir Alfred died at a young age following a stroke and his younger son Tony took over. Tony predicted correctly that breweries would start managing their own pubs, and so he established a chain of off-licenses and wine merchants called Davisons.

Moving into other areas

1971 - Moving into other areas

In 1971 the original J.T. Davies offices in Russell Square, London was relocated to Aberdeen road, Croydon, along with a new bottling warehouse. In the 1980s a new distribution centre was built. By the early 1990s there were 85 stores and a good handful of free-of-tie pubs. It had been a time of contraction for the JT Davies pubs as they had lost all the tenanted houses from Bass and Courage as a result of the 1989 Beer Orders. They were left with those pubs that had been bought individually or built. Tony Davies died, having passed the business to his son Michael seven years earlier, who joined the business in 1973. The company acquired 18 freehold pubs from Bass, the start of the tenanted pub business.

J.T. Davies and Brakspear

1994 - J.T. Davies and Brakspear

In 1994, J.T. Davies acquired Mayor Sworder wine merchants then two years later the off-licenses were sold to Unwins. These shops had run alongside the J.T. Davies pubs for just under 50 years. The company now owned 50 tenanted pubs. In 2000, J.T. Davies bought its first stake in W.H. Brakspear, adding to it in 2002 to secure a 30% share. In 2002, Brakspear moved away from direct brewing and Marstons took the reins at their Wychwood Brewery in Witney, Oxfordshire, right around the corner from where Brakspear bitter began at the Cross Keys.

Two companies merging

2007 - Two companies merging

In 2007, J.T. Davies acquired W.H. Brakspear in its entirety and turned it back into a private company, with 150 tenanted and leased pubs. Michael's son Tom joined the business as Commercial Director and the fifth generation of the Davies family to enter the business. J.T. Davies sold Mayor Sworder to Davy & Co of London. A year later Tom became Chief Executive of Brakspear with Michael becoming Chairman for W.H. Brakspear. The pub company side of Brakspear's head office moved to Bell Street, still in Henley on Thames, and the same street where the Brakspear brewery originally was. J.T. Davies then began to re-brand their 50 pubs as Brakspear, presenting one united company again.

Brewing in Henley again

2013 - Brewing in Henley again

In 2013, Brakspear opened its first managed pub, the Bull on Bell Street in Henley on Thames, directly opposite the head office. At the same time, the Bell St Brewery opened too; Brakspear were brewing back in Henley again! Though on a much smaller scale than before, as it is just a microbrewery, it's certainly proving to be popular. Read more in the beers section. To date, Brakspear have seven managed houses with more planned, but the tenanted and leased pubs will always remain at the hub of the business.

The Brakspear bee

1154 - The Brakspear bee

Nicholas Breakspear, a distant relative of the Brakspear family, was the only Englishman to ever be elected as pope and was also known as Pope Adrian IV. Elected pope on the 3rd December 1154, his papal seal contained the image of a bee, and so that's where our bee logo comes from.
