Run A Pub


If you are interested in running a pub, we have some of the most beautiful in the South West – along the Jurassic coast, in historic towns and villages, and amongst the rolling hills of West Dorset, Devon and Somerset.


We believe that well invested tenancies create pubs that are individual, characterful and successful. We are proud to have some of the top sites in the region and can offer them to tenants to build award winning sites, but are equally proud to serve beautiful beer with a warm welcome in our more rural community pubs.

A story of family, heritage, quality… and beer.

Palmers ales are brewed in one of Britain’s oldest and prettiest breweries and have been since 1794. The only thatched brewery in the UK, Palmers sits adjacent to the river Brit just a mile from Dorset’s Jurassic Coast. All our fine ales are brewed using water from our own naturally rising spring.

Our Head Brewer uses only the finest Maris Otter malt and carefully selected whole leaf hops to produce ales in a way they have been made for generations. Palmers historic brewhouse has a traditional Mash Tun, an open top Copper, along with top fermentation, this is the way ale should be brewed.
