Today we operate more than 1,400 pubs, bars and hotels which is our complete focus.
Our separate joint venture completed in 2020 with Carlsberg (Carlsberg Marston’s Brewing Company) gives us access to more than 60 of the country’s best loved ales and lagers which all play key parts in our ongoing success.

As a business, we strive to bring people together, creating happiness in our pubs and bars, and delivering more experience through our vast range of beers and drinks.

But it’s the passion of our 9,000 people that sets us apart from others, working together to create happy, memorable and meaningful experiences for our customers and stakeholders, every day.
