The company currently has a collection of 170 pubs that make up its managed house and Business Partner estate, stretching from Bristol to Exeter, London to Brighton. Early in 2021, Hall & Woodhouse sold a small collection of pubs in order to reinvest in assets which are better aligned to the business’ long-term strategy. Mark James, Property Director at Hall & Woodhouse, explained: “We continually look to evolve as a business by proactively managing our estate and investing in pubs of the future.

Our recent acquisitions add real quality, with many located in popular tourist locations across the south of England. These acquisitions will also significantly increase our bedroom stock. “We continue to seek out further high-quality acquisitions that complement and enhance our existing estate.”

Recent acquisitions include Masons Arms, Odcombe; Hit or Miss, Amersham; Old Ship Aground, Minehead; and The Dolphin Hotel, Bovey Tracey. The pipeline also includes further sites in Devon, Dorset and Surrey.
