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 fourth generation of ownership by the Bartholomew family.

Our stunning Victorian tower brewery is a landmark in the centre of Devizes and attracts visitors from across the world.

The brewery site combines the tradition of craft beer with modern production techniques and systems. Pubs signs are still hand painted in our sign shop and the Wadworth shire horses deliver daily 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 200 pubs - some award winning – across South West of England and London.

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.
