Why Marston’s?

Our mission at Marston’s is to have “Pubs To Be Proud Of” and we’re 100% committed to achieving this.

2021 saw a change of CEO, following the partial sale of our Brewery in 2020. By selling a stake in the brewery business, a new joint venture was created, Carlsberg Marston’s. So we’ve been through a period of huge change and we’re now in a position to grow and transform the business, with the best possible partners to join us on this very exciting journey.

Our commitment to our colleagues and partners is underpinned by a very clear set of values and behaviours and we put these at the heart of everything we do. It makes it the very special place that Marston’s is known to be.

We are Guest Obsessed – we put our guests first always, aiming to delight them when they’re in our pubs.

We Raise The Bar – we’re committed to each other, the business and to being the best version of ourselves.

We will Grow – we challenge ourselves and each other, to ensure we’re always being the best we can possibly be.

Our 450 strong Pub Support Team is committed to nurturing and enabling our hard-working and passionate Self-Employed Pub Operators to make their businesses a success. From dedicated marketing support from sector-experts, to access to a range of market-leading training and guest-experience platforms, Marston’s offers our Pub Partners more tools and support than ever before.
