A picture of Smiles Brewing Co. Ltd


Brewing started in 1978. A management buyout in 1991 resulted in the company rapidly expanding to own 17 pubs. Most of these pubs were sold as the business once more concentrated on brewing. Taken over again in late 2003. Underwent a restructuring late in 2004 which resulted in brewing being contracted out by a new Smiles Brewing Co Ltd to Highgate. The brewing equipment was removed from the old Brewery Tap which was sold to Butcombe.

Since the 1974 local government reorganisation there has been much controversy over many county boundaries. The links we provide cover all areas possibilities: Ceremonial Counties which are the counties for which a Lord-Lieutenant has been appointed, Historic Counties (and their allied county boroughs) which represent the position before the 1974 re-organisation and Local Authority which represents the third tear District level.
