Historic brewer Hall & Woodhouse has reported turnover nearing £100 million in its latest financial accounts.

The Dorset brewer, which produces Badger Ales, has also revealed a slight lift in its pre-tax profit despite a backdrop of “continued difficult economic conditions”.

The Blandford St Mary-based business has reported a four per cent boost in its group turnover to 94.1m for the year to January 30, 2012.

This is compared with turnover of £90.5 million in the previous year.

Pre-tax profit increased by 2.3 per cent from £5.6 million in 2011 to £5.7 million. The business said the result is “particularly pleasing despite the strong economic headwinds causing lower consumer confidence and rising material, utility, banking costs and beer duty”.

Halls & Woodhouse can trace its roots back to the 18th century. The business’ Badger Ales range includes ales such as Tanglefoot, Golden Glory and Fursty Ferret.

Halls & Woodhouse also operates about 250 pubs across the South West and South East, and achieved property sales of £2.6 million, as it sold under-performing assets.
