01 – Why Marston’s?

When you enter a Marston’s pub, you just get that feeling. It’s hard to place, but it’s a one-off magic. Every single one of our pubs has it. A part of the community, a place where memories are made. Behind every pub is a team obsessed with creating experiences that guests know and love. Putting smiles on the faces of regulars, and the new guests that pass through. That’s why we do it. Living by our “Pubs To Be Proud Of” vision with a 100% commitment to achieving this with every location. What comes next is a very exciting journey.

02 – Our partnerships

There’s a range of different ways to be your own boss as one of our pub partners. Making your choice is all about considering how much support you want from us (as well as how much money you’re looking to invest). It’s that simple.

03 – How to apply

This might be your first venture into running a pub, or maybe you’re a seasoned publican? Either way, we’ve made the process simple and clear so you’ll always know the status of your application. In accordance with the Pub Code regulations, our 6-stage application process is designed to introduce you to our company, purpose and values. We’ll share the right information at the right time, giving you the support and guidance to make every step as smooth as possible. Let’s see what’s possible together.
