Brakspear take over The Henley Brew House

A HENLEY pub which opened two years ago has been bought by Brakspear.

The Henley Brew House in Market Place was sold by the City Pub Company, which created it from the former police station.

The pub becomes the tenth Brakspear pub in the town centre.

Chief executive Tom Davies said: “We’re pleased to add the Brew House to our stable of successful pubs in our Henley heartland.

“It came on the market and because Henley is our home town we thought it would fit in well with our portfolio. It’s a good pub in a good location.

“With the right tenant at the helm, we’re confident the pub will trade well and attract customers into Henley.” Brakspear will remove the pub’s micro-brewery as another of its pubs, the Bull in Bell Street, has its own.

Mr Davies said: “The City Pub Company are moving the brewery to another of their pubs and because we have a micro-brewery round the corner we are going to use the space to create a bigger bar.”

The City Pub Company was set up by entrepreneurs David Bruce and Clive Watson with three new sites outside London.

The pair used to own the Capital Pub Company, which had a chain of 34 pubs, until they sold it to Greene King for £93 million ion 2011.
