Led by CEO Keith Knowles operates 21 award-winning backpacker hostels, bars and pubs across Europe spanning 13 cities and 9 countries with over 750 employees. St Christopher’s Inns, Belushi’s and The Flying Pig are just some of the well-known brands within the company. As a result, Beds & Bars has been featured in the Sunday Times Top 100 fastest growing companies in the UK and and in 2016, the company achieved IIP Platinum status. Beds and Bars was born in Hammersmith in West London in 1964 by Keith’s father, where the family owned pubs in the area in the 60s.
Beds and Bars is a leading operator of tourist accommodation and entertainment venues in Europe. With backpacker hostels, bars and traditional British pubs, in 10 cities and seven countries, the diversity of our offer mirrors the diversity of our customers. At the core of what we do are the four cornerstones of the experience we strive to deliver – one that is Safe, Secure, Fun and Value for money. When we get this right, the beds fill the bars and the bars fill the beds.
We both come from pub industry backgrounds and, between us, we have over 65-years of experience. In the beginning we identified a niche in the budget accommodation market and focused on the backpacker sector. Over the last two-decades we have taken the original model of 50-beds above a pub and evolved it into a concept that involves bespoke buildings with more than 500-beds.
We are always searching for opportunities to introduce our brands to new markets, and establish businesses at home in the UK, and abroad. This makes perfect sense to us – given that our sector is set to grow and outperform the more established accommodation markets. To that end we are currently considering partnerships around the world.
We seek to enhance, develop and enrich our team, and customers alike. We never lose sight of the important people in our lives. The fun factor of life is our priority.

We currently have two venues in London, one in Chicago and more planned so if you’re a ping pong addict or just love a great night out you should try working for us!
BREWDOG WAS BORN WITH THE AIM TO REVOLUTIONISE THE BEER INDUSTRY AND COMPLETELY REDEFINE BRITISH BEER-DRINKING CULTURE.
A decade of dog, 1000 employees, and two breweries later, they are the fastest growing Food & Drinks company in the UK, one of the Times Top 100 Best Employers, and breaking into international markets like a shark on steroids. One thing, however, has always stayed the same. Nailed to the wall, written in blood, their mission is to make other people as passionate about great craft beer as they are.
When we started out in 2013 with our first Brewpub in Portsmouth we wanted to create a place where we could inspire people to become as passionate about beer as we are.
Each of our pubs have a microbrewery onsite paired with one of our talented head brewers who tinkers around the brewery whilst you sit and watch and drink the beer that was made for you just a few ft. away. Guests are taken into our world of hops, brewing and beers to really experience what it is like to be a true purveyor of the best drink in the world.
We also pair our beers with our fresh, and classically inspired dishes, and some genuine, friendly and incredibly knowledgeable B&K people, who not only educate our guests in all things beer, but ensure they return again and again.

Friendly neighbourhood all-day dining in London, from brunch to burgers and coffee to cocktails in a chic, Parisian-inspired setting.
We started our business in Brighton in 2011, flipping burgers for friends’ parties and trying our luck at selling them from a small gazebo at local events. Everyone we knew loved a burger, but nobody was serving them the way we liked them – cooked simply with a focus on incredible, well-aged, grass-fed British beef with homemade chips, cut and cooked fresh, never frozen.
We’re over 30 restaurants these days (across London, Cambridge, Bristol, Reading & soon to open in the North West) and our restaurant managers help us to stay grounded in our local area and get involved in developing their own menus – collaborating with the best local producers to create one off burgers and finding great independent local beers to serve alongside.
