A Brief History

Beefeater was launched in 1974 when the first of its pub restaurants were opened. That was the Halfway House in Enfield and it specialised in selling simple foods such as char-grilled steaks. This led to a number of other establishments opening up over the next 20-years.

It has not always been plain sailing for Beefeater as the chain did struggle in the late 90’s due to the economy and stiff competition. However, like most good business, it has managed to come out the other side and is now going strong once again. There are now more 140 beefeater pub restaurants in the UK and we can envisage them continuing to provide a fun and filling day out for families for many more years to come.
