Our Pubs

From community locals to food pubs based in lovely rural settings to town centres and suburban locations, as a family business we have spent over 200 years building our pub estate.

Inns Of Character

We’re a small, but growing collection of very individual inns, each one hand-picked for its charm and character, united in a shared enthusiasm for looking after our guests.We’re a small, but growing collection of very individual inns, each one hand-picked for its charm and character, united in a shared enthusiasm for looking after our guests.

Shire Hotels & Spas

We’re proud of our six 4 star full-service hotels, and as a smaller hotel group, we’re free to do things a little differently to some of the larger hotel chains, and it’s a difference we know our guests value.
