St Austell Brewery has opened its new Samuel Jones pub-restaurant on Exeter quayside.

The brewery has invested £1.5m in transforming a derelict 19th century former bonded warehouse into a barbecue and smokehouse-inspired venue which, the company says, boasts the most extensive range of craft beers in the West country.

The new menu will include meats which have been smoked and cured in-house and cooked on chargrills and in barbecue ovens in an open, theatre-style kitchen.

Adam Luck, estates director for St Austell Brewery, said: “The Samuel Jones is a new concept for St Austell Brewery as we wanted to create a venue with a unique selection of craft beers and an innovative menu designed for customers to enjoy matching food with different beers.

“The quayside is a fantastic location and we look forward to playing a major part in the continued growth and resurgence of the area.”

The brewery recently scooped two prestigious industry honours for the third year in a row at the 2014 Publicans’ Choice Awards – run by the Publican’s Morning Advertiser​. St Austell was again named UK Regional Brewer of the Year, and its flagship Tribute Ale won the title of Best Regional Cask Ale Brand.
