About Wadworth

Wadworth has been brewing beer in the beautiful market town of Devizes, in Wiltshire, since 1875.

Originally founded by Henry Alfred Wadworth, the business passed to his founding partner John Smith Bartholomew and is now in the fifth generation of ownership by the Bartholomew family, with Toby Bartholomew leading the company as Managing Director.

The brewery combines the tradition of craft beer with modern production techniques and systems. Pub signs are still hand painted in our sign shop and the Wadworth shire horses deliver beers weekly around the town.

Our skills and craft are hugely important to us, and this is all backed up by a state of the art Steinecker brew house ensuring that our beers are the highest quality and consistency possible.

In addition to our family brewery we operate in excess of 150 pubs – across the South and West of England.

Our estate is split between tenanted and managed pubs and we work hard with our partners to ensure that our pubs offer a warm and welcoming atmosphere, and excellent quality food and drink to keep customers coming back time and time again.
