Pub Classics & Fresh Dishes
It’s time to head down to one of our fantastic food houses to discover how pub food should be done! Fresh, contemporary, home-made pizzas - you can enjoy all with friends and family.
We're proud to produce a range of British classics with a Joseph Holt Twist. We believe great food should be paired with great beer, and that's exactly what we do at the Joseph Holt kitchen.
Where We Call Home
Our Manchester Brewery has been home to Joseph Holt since 1860. Over the years, it has evolved and grown to become the modern brewery it is today.
Still being housed at the original Victorian brewery means we never lose sight of what’s important. We have remained faithful to the brewing traditions established by Joseph Holt back in the 1840s.
Who We Support
Since 1849 charity has been part of our family history, our legacy and our commitment to our communities.
As an independent, regional family brewer, Joseph Holt places community at the heart of our charity activities. It forms part of our values, it runs throughout our company and it is instilled in the principles of our people who work for us.

Established Since 1849
Our iconic brewery was first established in central Manchester by Joseph Holt in 1849, just as the city was booming its way through the Industrial Revolution.
After a successful start at two smaller brewery locations, Joseph Holt, the son of a weaver, and his ever-supportive wife, Catherine, moved their fledging brewery to Empire Street in 1860. This is the very same spot where we stand and brew today.
