Marston’s saves 1,300 jobs by taking over Brains pubs in Wales


Pub operator Marston’s will take over the running of around 150 pubs in Wales from SA Brain, safeguarding up to 1,300 jobs in the process, the companies have revealed.

Brains’ chairman said that the company had not taken the decision lightly, but recent trading restrictions in Wales due to the pandemic have put huge pressure on the business.

The 138-year-old business closed down all its pubs a few weeks ago after new rules that meant they would have to close at 6pm, and are not allowed to sell alcohol.

“This agreement marks the formation of a lasting strategic relationship with Marston’s which secures the future of Brains’ pubs and 1,300 of our employees within them,” said chairman John Rhys.

“We know and trust Marston’s to be excellent custodians of our pubs and, whilst this is not a decision we have taken lightly, we are confident that both our pubs – and our pubs teams – will thrive under their stewardship.”

The deal means that Wolverhampton-based Marston’s will take over operations at Brains’ portfolio of 156 pubs in Wales.
