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.
The Burger & Lobster story started back in 2011 when four schoolmates came together on a rooftop in London and came up with the simplest of ideas: a restaurant where the focus would be on perfecting two ingredients – burger and lobster.
In a small Irish pub in Mayfair, the first-ever Burger & Lobster was born, and since then we’ve done some growing. Our teams have spread their love for wild lobsters and prime cut burgers to fun, passionate people all around the globe who share our same appetite for creativity.
Food innovation and team member education are what makes us tick. And our utter obsession with all things burgers and lobsters makes it easy. With a heart for provenance and the drive to continually source only the highest quality ingredients around, whether that’s our food or team members, our recipe is simple: source the best, treat it with respect and have a great time along the way.

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.

Innventure is so named as it is experimental with its architecture and its offers. Innventure believes in providing its customers (guests) with an adventure both in terms of Food and Drink. However, notwithstanding any adventure provided, Innventure businesses fundamentally meet the social needs of guests to socialise, to gossip and build local relationships. These social needs are those of the great British pub and Innventure is, at heart, a food led Pub Company, rather than a restaurant business.
The heart of the Innventure business is fresh great British food with a twist. This twist is the twist of passion combined with excellence and simplicity.
The company has a mixed portfolio offering two differing formats. The first is a high volume carvery business, serving upwards of 3000 meals a week. The second, across four other businesses, is a premium food offer, linked to and complemented by, a strong wine offer.
In all the businesses the philosophy is the same; to offer safe, accessible, delicious and relevant good value food, contrasted with the choice of more adventurous food for those who want to step up. This adventure with food is reflected in robust and rewarding flavours and foods which, for some, maybe slightly experimental.

Tap Social Movement was founded in 2016 by Paul, Amy and Tess. Having experience in a range of positions across the criminal justice system, they have all witnessed the difficulty people face when trying to turn their lives around after coming into contact with the law. There is a lack of support and assistance available to navigate complicated career pathways, and criminal records often dissuade employers from hiring otherwise eligible candidates. Many of the people they have worked with, especially those who have spent time in prison, struggle to access education, training and employment, hindering their rehabilitation, and drawing them back into a life of crime. But having worked closely with many people who have been through the system they know that there is so much talent and potential that is going to waste. Tap Social Movement was founded in an attempt to stop this vicious cycle by providing opportunities which set people up for long-term fulfilling employment.
