Our Story

Buccaneer Inns was started in 1974 by Michael Ruthven, in partnership with Heavitree Brewery & quickly built a managed house company with a mixture of freeholds & leasehold properties spanning from Oxfordshire to Devon. The company eventually had thirty four houses and a head office based in Cheltenham.

In 1990 Buccaneer was sold to Whitbreads & Michael Ruthven retained two pubs which are both still in the Buccaneer group today. In 1993 Tim Ruthven joined his father & with Andrew Jones started Buccaneer Holdings Ltd.
