The local pub has always been at the heart of British community, it’s where we gather to socialise, celebrate, commiserate, relax, reflect, regroup, or simply enjoy a cold beer at the end of a long day. To us, that’s important, and always will be.
We’ve been running pubs and brewing beer in one form or another for over 180 years. Now we’ve got around 14,000 people working for us and many more in partnership with us, and they all share our passion!
Our people; from the brewery teams, to the distribution fleet, to every single team member in our pubs, have helped us to become a thriving company.
We have pubs that are traditional locals, family pub restaurants and fashionable town centre bars. While pubs may have changed a lot over the years, the reasons people use them hasn’t. The pub is where we go to socialise, celebrate, commiserate, relax, reflect, regroup or simply enjoy a cold beer or a bite to eat at the end of a long day.
We are now one of the country’s top pub businesses and the leading brewer of premium cask and bottled beers. We operate six breweries producing over 60 of the country's best loved ales at our sites in: Burton on Trent (Marston’s), Oxfordshire (Wychwood & Brakspear), Cumbria (Jennings), Hampshire (Ringwood), Bedford (Eagle) and the West Midlands (Banks’s).
We're rightly proud of our heritage - our people, our pubs and our beers. We work hard making sure that everything we do; from the beers we brew, to the pubs they are enjoyed in, and the people that serve them, are always the best that they can possibly be.
