We are now very proud to have a copy of that momentous occasion for all to see.

New addition to the Beerhouses family

We are very excited to announce that we have an new addition to the Beerhouses family. Our newest venue is Symposium in Idle, which we have recently acquired from Market Town Taverns. This will be the first to be renamed and brought under the new ‘Beerhouse’ portfolio and will hopefully be the first of many.  We are looking forward to bringing the Beerhouses brand to Bradford. We look forward to welcoming customers old and new once we reopen. We also wish MTT all the very best with all their future ventures.

Patrick Stewart visits The Sportsman

A couple of months ago we had the privilege of welcoming Patrick Stewart for a photoshoot with Olivia Hemingway Photography here at The Sportsman.

The shoot was for Hrilovestories an exhibition of photography and stories highlighting the plight of Huddersfield Royal Infirmary and the proposed closure of the A&E department.

We are proud to have been a small part of this important project; a collaboration between Olivia Hemingway and The SHARP Agency

The exhibition is on display at our good friends The Corner – Mallinsons Brewery Taphouse and you can learn more at

Vaporising and E-cigs

Vaporising and E-Cigs are no longer allowed to be smoked inside Beerhouses pubs. We know this may upset some of our customers however we have listened to our customers feedback over the last year and the majority of this has been that they do not like vaporising within the pub. So we have taken the decision to no longer allow Vaporising and E-Cigs inside the pubs. Thank you for your cooperation.
