Craft Union Pub Company

At Craft Union, we stand shoulder to shoulder with our operators, supporting them as they practice their craft of running outstanding pubs. For us, they are our local heroes.
All of our pubs are decorated to the highest of standards, creating welcoming places you’ll want to spend time in. A real feeling of home from home! From a varied drinks range to all the best sporting action, to pub quizzes and live music. Our operators have the freedom to get involved in as much marketing activity or as little as they like.
