All Saints' Brewery Co.(Leicester) Ltd

Offices at 21 Silver Street, Leicester

Brewery at 103 High Cross Street, Leicester

From 1805 to 1815 William Forrester was a brewer in High Cross Street and his address in 1818 was shown as the Brewery.

The 1826 poll book lists Robert Birkley as a brewer in Northgate Street, but this seems to have been his home address. In 1832-35 he was listed on High Cross Street as a brewer, maltster and spirits merchant. Richard Kirk was a partner in Kirk & Soar, hop and porter merchants in Silver Street, but in 1819 bankrupt at the Silver Street Porter Brewery.

Owned by Moon & Cock from the 1860s, then Cock & Langmore followed by Langmore & Bankart.

T G Cock was advertising in the Chronicle that he had succeeded the late J W Goodwin in High Cross and was trading as Goodwin, Cock & Co, All Saints Brewery.

Registered in September 1895 to acquire Langmore & Bankart, All Saints' Brewery and Watts & Son, wine and spirit merchants, Leicester. Brewing had ceased by 1917 with beer bought in from Leicester Brewing & Malting Co. Ltd.

Acquired by Ind Coope Ltd in March 1929 with 81 public houses.

The brewery was demolished in 2010.
