Hawthorn Leisure is a multi-award winning pub company that owns and operates over 300 leased and managed pubs across England, Scotland and Wales. Since launching in 2014, it has become the leader in pub company culture, genuinely caring about its Partners and delivering value to all stakeholders.
Hawthorn Leisure thinks differently to other pub companies and is famous for great people, great pubs and great propositions, thanks to living by its values; edgy energetic spirit, make it happen, think different “the crazy ones”, winning together and respect.
“Hawthorn Leisure launched in 2014 to develop a modern day pub company with an energetic culture. We started the business with a clean sheet of paper and no baggage, allowing us to shape it the way we wanted with a strong ethos around fairness and ensuring there is a win:win for all stakeholders, especially our Partners. We pride ourselves in taking a fresh approach, quick to act, willing to give anything a go.”
“Hawthorn Leisure has been receptive to our needs, understanding our need to invest and the incentives to work hard. We’ve worked with a few pub companies, many putting short-term gains ahead of sustainability and long-term growth. Hawthorn Leisure is the first we’ve worked with to look at the model differently. Since taking over the freehold, the exterior has been decorated, and we’ve gone 50:50 on a few other projects to improve standards. They’ve freed the tie on a couple of ale lines, allowing us to be more competitive with local free houses, while discounting other key lines which means we have the incentive to work harder to sell more.”
