Overview
The Crown is a beautiful community pub ideally located in the centre of the affluent village of Albrighton, 5 miles from Wolverhampton. The pub has 4 separate trading areas in one large room.
 
The pub is situated on a main road with other trading outlets including a local butchers, restaurants and other pubs. There is also a large car park available which is also used publicly meaning plenty of passing trade to draw into the pub. 
 
The pub currently trades at around £10,000 a week in sales.
 
The Crown has a decent sized kitchen and is currently 70/30 wet led with the opportunity to drive food sales through a Marston's pub classics menu and decent Sunday Roast offering. It also benefits from a function room as well as darts/pool equipment.  This fantastic pub would really benefit from a 'community hero' who can really tap into all demographics.  
The Opportunity
That idea you’ve always had about running your own pub – always seemed like a distant dream, didn’t it? Bet you never realised it was just a £5k security deposit away with a Marston’s retail agreement. Your earnings will be based on a percentage of weekly net turnover and for those of you interested in delivering a food offer, the agreement may include one of our branded food menus.

We’ve been working with this type of agreement for 10+ years now and have invested £3 million in our Retail Agreement pubs over the last year alone. People love them because they offer amongst other benefits:
 
A  share of weekly sales, excluding vat.
 
A bonus payment if your pub exceeds budget – 10% of your pubs total profit above budget, paid bi-annually.
 
Low ingoing costs, starting with just a £5,000 deposit, we will even pay for your legal fees.
 
Accommodation provided, with most bills covered, except the council tax 
 
All of your stock, including food, and all associated consumables are supplied for free by Marston’s, although you will be responsible for managing it once it has been delivered.
 
Comprehensive induction training and ongoing support and training.
 
A dedicated area manager working with you to help you grow the business.
 
Access to our 450 strong-support teams whenever you need them – including Marketing, Recruitment and Food and Drink specialists.
 
All our Pub Partners get access to our FREE Learning, Development and Training platform Campus (a package worth over £300!).
 
 
Things to consider

In addition to the £5k security deposit required for this agreement, you will need to cover your own insurance, except building insurance, which we’ll cover. Also, you’ll want to start thinking about your team; taking care of paying them and all other employment matters.

Before we all sign the agreement and see you heading into a whole new life, you’ll just need to show us proof that you’ve had independent financial advice from an accountant and solicitor, in accordance with the Pubs Code. And, of course, obtain your personal licence (which we’ll help with) and complete your induction training.

It’s a five-year commitment, so you have loads of time to build the business and get it performing brilliantly but, if you do want to leave early, there’s always the option of six months’ notice with a ‘break’ clause in the contract.
 
As part of our quest to find the perfect operator for this pub, have waived our legal fees on this vacancy, saving the successful candidate £360.

A day in the life...

Hi, I'm Lewis

My induction with Marston’s was tailored so I visited sites that were going to be similar to mine.

I spent time with a ‘buddy’ manager from a nearby site – he was a great guy and really honest and talked to me about the culture of Marston’s as well as the day to day running of the business.

My Area Manager, Nigel was really supportive and if he didn’t have the answer he would pull on his network of experts to support.

Opening a new build pub

On the opening day there was so many people coming in but I wasn’t worried as I had every type of support there to help it run smoothly. The whole board came down for a meal at my pub, the CEO and the Managing Director are really nice people and down to earth too!
