Just two months after taking on two former Enterprise Inns venues, Brakspear has acquired a further two pubs as it continues with its well-reported expansion plans.

The two new sites - the Star & Eagle in Goudhurst, Kent and the William Bray in Shere, Surrey - take the number of summer acquisitions for the Henley-on-Thames-based firm to five. 

The total number of pubs in the estate now numbers 146. J T Davies & Sons, Brakspear’s parent company, saw operating profit increase by 14 per cent to £4.1m in the year to 31 December 2011.

"2011 was a year of laying foundations for the growth that we are pushing forward this year.  We believe we already have the best tenanted–only estate in the business and now we are bringing more great pubs with talented retailers into it through our acquisition programme," Tom Davies, Brakspear chief executive said.
