Chris Phillips, chief executive of Upham Pub Company, said: “We are delighted to welcome The Weighbridge Brewhouse to the Upham family.
“We will ensure that the pub maintains its current operation, with the fantastic team remaining on board, and continues to offer its quality food, drink and welcoming atmosphere that its customers know and love.”
The Weighbridge Brewhouse has a bar and restaurant area as well as an in-house micro-brewery where head brewers Mark Wallington and Jordan Wheeler brew and serve six Weighbridge ales.
The acquisition will extend the company’s presence towards the west of England. Phillips said: “This is slightly out of our usual trading region, and provides a fantastic opportunity to branch out to areas further afield.
“It’s great to have an already established pub with a real community feel and fantastic heritage story - with their previous manager owning the pub and his son Ashley now the general manager - and we look forward to a successful future for The Weighbridge Brewhouse.”
