In May the firm recruited Colliers International to seek pub acquisitions within 50 miles of the brewery.
“We have seen a lot of sites. We’ve got a number we are looking at seriously,” joint managing director Adrian Staley told M&C Report.
He said Hook Norton, which operates 44 pubs, had a “huge response” to its appeal for new outlets, including freehouses and sites owned by major pub groups.
When asked if the firm would consider taking a flagship site in London, Staley said: “I would say a couple of years down the line, yes.”
Staley said there are also plans to roll out new signage across the estate over the next couple of years.
