WHO WE ARE
How we got here
Inspired by his own experiences of working in the Edinburgh bar scene, in 2003 Nic Wood launched Signature Pubs with it’s first ever venue – the Grassmarket’s Black Bull. Now headquarted in Edinburgh and employing over 700 staff members, Signature Pubs has since gone from strength to strength and now boasts a proud portfolio of 24 bars, restaurants and hotels throughout Scotland. In 2018, it also introduced it’s own small batch brewery, Cold Town.

We want to invest wisely, grow sustainability and encourage a sense of community and inclusiveness in the areas around our venues.
