About us

We are a group of around 1,300 incredible pub businesses in the UK. Punch was born in 1997 and quickly began to expand our portfolio until we were listed on the stock exchange in 2002. In the years after, we acquired some great brands and in 2017 were acquired by Patron Capital and May Capital.

We’re constantly investing in our pubs, and we’ve got big plans (and some great financial backing) to develop over the next three years.

And its not just the pubs we’re investing in.  We’re leading the way in training – our training packages gives our Publicans some of the best induction training and professional development in the industry.  We’ve even been recognised with a National Innovation and Training Award for our Art of the Possible training programme.
