Chef & Brewer is a chain of around 127 licensed traditional pub restaurants in the United Kingdom, owned by the Greene King subsidiary, the Spirit Pub Company.


Grand Metropolitan , which later formed part of Diageo, sold Chef & Brewer pubs to Scottish & Newcastle in 1993 in a part cash, part debentures deal of £708 million.[1] In 2003, Scottish & Newcastle auctioned off the Chef & Brewer chain, which was acquired by the Spirit Group. In 2005 the Spirit Group was acquired by Punch Taverns.[2] In 2011 the Chef & Brewer chain became part of Spirit Pub Company plc following its demerger from Punch Taverns. The Spirit Pub Company plc was acquired by Greene King in June 2015.[3]

The pubs are known for their family friendly atmosphere and have recently featured in Tesco Clubcard promotions.[4]
