M oving into the pub industry was a big leap for us as teachers and there is a great deal of bad press aimed at breweries in particular. We did our research and it was clear that St Austell did not conform to these stereotypes. The brand is a strong one and is growing, a family-led organisation based on core values with a community focus, everything a good pub should be! As a new tenant, their support has been excellent. We feel part of a larger family, listened to, cared about and valued.
