About Punch

Punch Pubs – proud patrons of the local

At Punch, we’re all about opening up possibilities to pub lovers like ourselves. As patrons of the pub, we are on a mission to nurture the Great British institution that is the public house.

Our pubs welcome the ebb and flow of everyday life, from the big games and the little chats to the celebrations and commiserations – our pubs have always been there for their customers and their communities.


Every one of our 1,300 pubs is unique, each with its own personality, people and charm. But walk into any one and you can expect a warm welcome, good food and drinks, and a great time to be had.

Our pubs are places where everyone is welcome. And so is our business. At our core, we’re about treating people with the warmth and hospitality they’d expect in any of our pubs.

Here at Punch, we’re always thinking about tomorrow and the possibilities it will bring. Exciting possibilities with our Publicans at the very heart of everything we do. It’s part of our history.

And a turning point came in 2017 when we were acquired by Patron Capital and May Capital. This breathed new life into the business, giving us the firepower to invest in our pubs, having invested more than £35 million since we launched the plan in 2019, we are on an epic journey to work together with our Publicans and unlock epic possibilities in communities up and down the country.

We’ve got a huge variety of unique, high-quality, leased, tenanted and management partnership pubs on our books along with years of experience in teaming up brilliant pubs with brilliant people.

To top it all off, we were crowned Best Leased & Tenanted Pub Company at the 2020 Publican Awards. But this is just the beginning…

The Best Support in the Business

From a warm reception at our Welcome Inn and hands-on training at The Academy (our state-of-the-art training space with two fully working bars and a live cellar), to innovative online courses, regular catch ups and marketing support that packs a serious punch, we’re with our Publicans every step of the way.

Our goal is to help every person and every pub to achieve their true potential, not just when it comes to selling more beer or delivering a better bottom line – it’s bigger than that – it’s about outstanding Publicans, busier pubs and more connected communities.
