Nicholson’s Pub Collection Celebrates 150 Years


This year, Nicholson’s Pub Collection celebrates 150 years of their iconic British pubs. They boast some of the most beautiful and ornate pubs across England, Scotland and Northern Ireland. Each pub serves a superb range of cask ales – including their own Nicholson’s Pale Ale brewed by St Austell Brewery in Cornwall.

Since founder William Nicholson opened the collection’s first pub in 1873, Nicholson’s have been the epitome of the Great British pub, with warm hospitality and quality food and drink.


Nicholson’s anniversary will see them hosting events up and down the country. With an eye on the next 150 years, the group also shares its focus on sustainability, renewable energy and reducing waste consumption.

Gin & Ale Trails

With 78 sites across the UK, Nicholson’s boast a unique collection of historic ale & gin trails to discover, from Edinburgh to Brighton. Venture across England, Scotland and Northern Ireland and visit each pub for the ultimate pub crawl. What’s more, by downloading the app and scanning the unique QR codes you can collect stamps at each stop which include discounts and free drinks. Download the app here.

Nicholson’s Gin Special Cocktail

To celebrate the birthday, the team has come up with a very special Gin Fizz Spritz, a decadent twist on a classic Collins. Raise a toast to 150 years of iconic British Pubs with Nicholson gin, muddled with a zesty lemonade syrup and mixed with sparkling Prosecco, a dash of soda water and a dried lemon slice.
