The Marston’s pub company has had a good year, with the creation of 22 new pubs and bars and a profit increase of eight percent per pub.

Marston’s preliminary annual accounts have shown that their average profit per pub has increased by eight percent in the past year. The figures also revealed that underlying pre-tax profits have risen by 7.1 percent to £98m for the year up to 1 October.

Chief executive Ralph Findlay said: “We have delivered another year of good growth across the business, with the outstanding performance of our beer company particularly encouraging.”

The creation of 22 new pubs and restaurants across the country was further evidence of a strong year for the pubco. This trend is set to continue in 2017, with a planned £10m investment in Scotland.

Nationally, Marston’s aims to open at least 20 pub-restaurants in the coming year, as well as three Revere bars and between five and 10 lodges.
