At Marston's we have been running pubs and brewing our famous beers for over 180 years so we know a thing or two!

We offer something for everyone; from the local watering hole to premium pub restaurants our estate is vibrant and varied.

We are a growing business constantly on the lookout for new talent to join us and be part of the success story!



The Fox Cub is a recent Two For One new build pub which continues to attract both local regular customers and passion trade due to its prominent roadside location on a main arterial route. The pub is located on Durham Gate, one of the largest leisure developments in the area.

Average weekly net sales: £18,000

Wet/ dry split: 30/70

Average number of meals served per week: 1,800

There has been a lot of regeneration in the area, including a new housing development which is yet to be completed and offers an excellent opportunity for the business moving forward. We are looking for a General Manager or Management couple with a real passion for delivery of exceptional service and standards, a strong focus on team is also a must. This would be an excellent opportunity for a high performing deputy to make a mark in this strong business with scope for further growth.



We like to treat our employees like our family so we offer the best in employee benefits:

  • A fantastic bonus scheme

As an experienced Manager you will know the ins and outs of managing a branded business: from stock control to driving sales you will be at the top of your game. You won't necessarily need to know how to tap a cask or run a kitchen, we can help with those skills but you will be able to motivate and inspire your team to deliver unbeatable customer service. Confidence and personality are crucial in our pubs!
