This morning we announced that contracts have been exchanged with SA Brain & Co for Marston’s PLC to operate its portfolio of 156 pubs in Wales, safeguarding around 1,300 jobs in the process.

This deal is a mark of confidence in the sector and is consistent with our strategy as a focused pub operator with ambitious goals.

We are pleased that we’ve been able to reach an agreement which allows the pubs to continue trading, and which preserves as many jobs as possible.
