18 SA Brain and Marston’s pubs are set to open in the region on Monday.

Ahead of the next stage of the Welsh Government’s roadmap out of lockdown, the Brains and Marston’s pub operator has confirmed that 18 pubs across Flintshire, Wrexham and surrounding areas will reopen from the April 26

With the focus on alfresco hospitality, pubs that can accommodate customers in outdoor gardens will operate with an adapted offering in line with restrictions.

Key details across all Brains and Marston’s pubs regarding reopening include:

  • Adapted food and drink offers for customers to enjoy outdoors. Food offers may vary from site to site, but much-loved pub food will be at the heart of every menu which will include vegetarian and vegan options
  • To accompany table service, Marston’s has introduced an online ordering system called ‘Marston’s Tap’. The online platform is available across the majority of Marston’s pubs for guests to use and a full rollout is underway following its success last year. Brains’ pubs will also operate an online ordering system for guests to use during their visit
  • Bookings are being accepted and guests can reserve a table via each pub’s website
  • Pubs will also be accepting walk-ins
  • Access to toilets and baby changing facilities will be available

Plans to make customers as welcome as possible are in place and opportunities to celebrate being back at the pub will be at the forefront of everyone’s minds from simply ‘being back at the pub with friends and family’ to enjoying May Bank Holidays.

Ralph Findlay, Marston’s CEO, said: “We are delighted many of our pubs and Brains’ pubs across Wales will reopen and teams can welcome back guests.

"It’s been a challenging time, but we are excited to see friends and family reunite and enjoy going out once again.”
