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.

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.
