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.
Where we are going
At the heart of our business are venues that showcase the best of Scottish produce and hospitality, each through their own unique delivery and offering. We favour historic architecture and community involvement, aiming to provide positive growth and engagement with new each project. It is our hope that we continue to grow, and create properties beloved by locals and visitors alike.
Our aim is to ensure all customers have a great experience IN our venues!
Our vision is to nurture a portfolio of preferred, destination venues for socialising and experiencing the best of Scottish, independent hospitality for locals and tourists alike. We want to invest wisely, grow sustainability and encourage a sense of community and inclusiveness in the areas around our venues. We take pride in building a reputation for great people, great products and, most importantly, consistently brilliant customer service.
