We are the country’s leading pub company and brewer, running over 3,000 pubs, restaurants and hotels in towns, villages and city-centre high streets across England, Wales and Scotland. It’s our rich heritage of more than 200 years that has taught us how to brew award-wining beer and operate pubs from our base in Bury St. Edmunds ever since the company was founded in 1799 by 19 year-old Benjamin Greene. As a company, we pride ourselves on consistently offering exceptional value, service and quality to all our customers. This ethos is central to everything we do in our business: the products that we offer, the ales that we brew, the affordable prices that we charge, the team members who serve our customers and the atmosphere of our pubs, restaurants and hotels.
We’ve been running pubs and brewing beer in one form or another for more than 185 years – a heritage that we’re incredibly proud of! 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 Marstons 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.
