St Austell Brewery tenants, along with many other pub companies have been contacted by Allegra to find out their views on us as a company. In every year we have taken part, our tenants have given us a better review mark than any other company who took part in the survey. We are very proud of this and want to work very hard to maintain our position as providing industry leading support to our tenants and lessees.


As a tenant with St Austell Brewery you will operate in an environment that values flexibility, creativity and entrepreneurship.

Our licensees do things their way but with our full, and unequalled, support.  Plus, our diverse, high quality estate ensures that you’ll be able to find a pub that will enable to you achieve your business aspirations.


What's more, as a St Austell tenant, your pubs will sell award winning, premium cask and bottled beers and lagers including Tribute, Proper Job and Korev plus amazing wines from around the world.

In 2015 we celebrated winning the ultimate industry accolade being named the Best Tenanted and Leased Pub Company in the UK.  Judges praised our unrivalled support for tenants and lessees, and excellent communication and marketing. Other areas highlighted were strong innovation across the company and high standards of staff training and development.

Award Winning Business


All of our tenancy agreements follow our Code of Practice, ensuring we operate in a plain speaking and open manner. Also we won’t enter into an agreement with you unless we feel that you are fully equipped with the right knowledge and skills required to make your business successful.

St Austell Brewery is a family run company which has been in the business of running pub tenancies for over 160 years, giving you plenty of guidance and experience to call on.  Being a family company means we don’t have to worry about external investors looking for quick returns, so our business strategy is about long-term growth rather than short-term gains. 

Hear why the winners of The Great British Pub Awards 2015 Best Partnership Pub award, the Victoria Inn, Salcombe recommend a tenancy with St Austell Brewery.

Working in Partnership


Whether you are an experienced landlord or about to run your first pub, we offer unrivalled support.  We understand pub tenancies and what makes a great pub and we offer the most experienced people in the business to help you succeed.

Running your own pub is a fantastically rewarding career while it can also provide you with a lovely home, a successful business and a fantastic social life in one of the most beautiful areas of Britain. However, it also demands a lot of hard work, passion and a strong head for business.

To be successful you will need to be able to manage staff as well as delight in serving customers. The days can be very long - as can the nights - but one thing is for sure, not one day is the same as the one before!

We appreciate that taking on a new pub is a decision that cannot be taken lightly and we aim to ensure that you have all the information you need to make an informed decision.
