About us

We are a brewer and pub operator based in Salford. We moved to our new brewery premises near to Media City UK in December 2012; not the best time of year for a brewery move!

The new brewery is entirely dedicated to the production of cask ales. Four beers are available on a permanent basis and an extensive range of constantly changing seasonal craft ales are also produced. Our beers are distributed through our managed and tenanted houses, free trade customers, wholesalers and pub groups. Go to ‘our beers’ for more information.

We operate around 60 pubs split evenly between managed houses, fully operated by the Company, and tenancies which are let to independent operators. Our pubs are located in the North West of England and North Wales.

Our pubs include destination food houses, suburban locals and town centre venues. We aim to make every one of our sites the best in its locality. Two of our sites surpassed even this aspiration when they won the ‘Best Managed House’ category in the Great British Pub Awards in 2011 and 2012. The Joshua Bradley at Gee Cross was the first winner followed by the John Millington, Cheadle Hulme.

We are constantly seeking to improve our estate through refurbishment and acquisition. If you are aware of an acquisition opportunity that may be of interest to us, we will pay a ‘bounty’ of £500 if we go on to purchase the site.

We have a great heritage at Hydes with over 150 years of history and we are now looking forward with confidence as a brewer and licensed retailer competing successfully in these highly competitive markets.
