British brewer Robinsons has completed the acquisition of Individual Inns Group, growing the firm’s 260-strong stable of pubs in the north of England and Wales.

The sixth-generation family firm – one of the oldest and most respected names in British brewing history – will expand its operations into Cumbria, and begin trading in Yorkshire for the first time.

Stockport-based Robinsons was advised on the deal by the Bristol-based corporate finance team of accountancy, investment management and tax group Smith & Williamson.

William Robinson, managing director of Robinsons pubs division, said: “This acquisition supports our strategy of developing our estate through selective investment in high-quality sites.

“Opportunities like this don’t come up often and the proactive support of our long-standing advisers at Smith & Williamson enabled us to move quickly to secure the deal.”

The Smith & Williamson team was led by partner Matthew Pearson.

He said: “Robinsons has a fantastic history going back 180 years and we were delighted to support them in this acquisition, which makes a step change in the development of its managed retail business.

“Individual Inns is an award-winning pub group closely aligned to the quality and character of Robinsons pubs and I’m sure it will benefit greatly from being part of the Robinsons family.”
