Welcome To the City Pub Company (West) Plc

The City Pub Company (West) Plc is a high quality and successful pub business founded in December 2011 by the established industry entrepreneurs David Bruce and Clive Watson, and John Roberts, former Managing Director of the Fuller’s Beer Company. The business operates a portfolio of distinctive high quality pubs in cities and major provincial towns in the South East, and boasts attractive pubs located in affluent provincial towns and cities in Southern England: such as Bath, Brighton, Winchester and London.

The team already has an excellent track record. In 2001, David Bruce and Clive Watson created the Capital Pub Company, which they sold in 2011 to Greene King for an enterprise value of £93m. The City Pub Company (West) Plc has a ‘sister’ company, The City Pub Company (East) Plc. Both have been set up under the Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS) in order to ensure tax efficient returns to our investors. We have successfully raised a total of £13.9m for The City Pub Company (West) Plc and the same amount for The City Pub Company (East) Plc following four oversubscrobed fund raising rounds, the last of which was completed in December 2013.

Each Company is run separately with its own management team, and each has a number of pubs with distinctively different retail offers. These are united by a passion for high retail standards and locally sourced ales (some of which are brewed on the premises), ciders, wines and fresh food. The City Pub Company (West) Plc team is led by the very experienced Chief Executive Alex Derrick, formerly with the Capital Pub Company.

Our portfolio of Pubs

The City Pub Company (West) Plc has a growing portfolio of wonderful pubs. Two of these are in highly desirable 'London villages': the Lighthouse in Battersea and the Roundhouse in Wandswoth Common, alongside two great pubs in the city of Bath: The Cork, close to our other pub in the city, the Bath Brew House which opened in September 2013.

We added the stunning Lion & Lobster in Brighton to our portfolio in 2014, and have recently reopened Alfies Freehouse & Garden, a delightful pub with a great atmosphere in the heart of the cathederal city of Winchester.
