Pub and bar operator ranking: 11 (new entry)
After almost 15 years as right-hand man to Stephen Goodyear, Patrick Dardis moved up from retail director into the hot seat as chief executive at Young's Brewery in July 2016, when Goodyear stepped down. Young's is now a pure-play pub operator after disposing of its brewery site in Wandsworth. Dardis heads up a team of retail professionals operating a slick pub, hotel and restaurant business, in which the Young family still has a significant stake. For the 53 weeks to 3 April 2017, Young's reported revenue up 9.4% year-on-year to £268.9m. The company operates 173 managed pubs within its Young's and Geronimo Inns divisions, with another 79 pubs in the tenanted Ram Pub Company.
