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.

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.
