Making a difference to your small business

Melrose Group are small business accountants based in Bristol with over 100 years combined experience in the sector, specialising in the hospitality industry.

This means we have the knowledge to help you with all your accounting needs.

As we don’t out-source to third parties we can offer a completely integrated service, liaising quickly and easily with other departments. This makes us more efficient and cost effective.

Each client receives a dedicated, local client manager to work with – they will take the time to understand your business, helping you to stay in control of costs and advise you on how to drive your company forward.

Based in Thornbury, Bristol we cover the South West, Devon and Cornwall, South Wales, the Midlands and the South East.


Melrose are a dedicated company, there to help and assist their clients as best they can! Friendly knowledgeable people who invest time and effort into making clients feel welcome and helping them with all financial needs.

The three things which describe Melrose and why they stand out … Helpful, Knowledgeable and Clear Understanding!

- Nathan - Railway Inn, Billingshurst

I have used Melrose for 12 years – all the time I have run my pub in Thornbury they have always been able to answer any queries.

I have a business review with the Account Manager on a regular basis – Jeff is always thorough and has given me sound advice.

The office staff are just amazing in every way; they answer any email or telephone queries as quickly and efficiently as I could ever wish for; the stock taker always arrives on time and carries out the visit without any disruption to service and a report arrives shortly after – suffice to say I would never think of going anywhere else and will continue to use them and will highly recommend them to others.

- Sandra - Swan Inn, Thornbury

Great accountants especially Mike - I've been using Melrose since November 21 and I have had no issues at all

The team are very friendly and thorough and are extremely quick in processing everything cannot fault😊

- Chelsie Barratt - Wye Inn, Hereford

Fantastic. Knowledgeable, helpful and always professional. I would highly recommend Melrose. They really help your business operate smoothly.

- Rhys - Golden Lion

Having been in the pub / restaurant industry as a mixed owner of 13 properties, we as a company have used Melrose as a company to do all our accounting needs and advice. We have always found them to be very professional and honest with all our needs as multiple owners.

Highly recommend them as a company.

- David J Belcher - Tippling Philosopher

We engaged the services of Melrose in December 2021, since then we haven't looked back with support in payroll and accounts.

Highly recommended for the hospitality businesses. Our client manager Mike Jones is always on hand to support with solutions and assistance.

- Rob - The Halfway Pub & Restaurant, Llanelli

I have had the pleasure of dealing with Melrose since before we opened in July 2021. Their information and advice pre-opening made the whole experience seamless and stress-free and always available to take my calls.

Nowhere along the journey did I feel I wasn't supported by a great team. From training courses to accounts & payroll, they provide a friendly, professional service and nothing is too much trouble.

I couldn't recommend them highly enough and will readily continue to use their services.
Thank you Melrose.

- D. Richards - The Old Bank Hotel

 Gill is being a diamond to me at this time and the information off Melrose has been priceless.

- Brian Rees - The Reverend James, Swansea

Thank you for your updates, it’s great in case we miss anything the guidance you have all given has been great and very helpful.

-Theresa Pownall - Elm Tree, Hanham

Over the past 8 months, during this difficult time, I’ve been working with a great team of helpers that have been there whenever I need to ask silly little questions!

They’ve been amazing thank you Caroline, Louise & Katy!! 😊😊

- Luke Tappin - South Western Arms, Southampton
