A little about us

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 nitty gritty

The Spread Eagle is located in the heart of England, on the outskirts of the quaint town of Corby. This picturesque pub boasts a large impactful beer garden which is a huge draw for trade in the summer months, where take can rise to £30k and beyond.

The interior of the pub is split into 2 distinct areas, with the bar area on one side and the restaurant on the other. It also features a decent sized children’s play area which helps drive family trade. The pub is full of character and offers a great opportunity for someone to take it to the next level. The pub is also due to have a refurbishment later this year.

The Spread Eagle has good road links with several dual carriageways, and is just 6 miles from the A14 at Kettering. This well-known business attracts customers from a wide geographical area, as well as benefiting from housing estates on the doorstep, resulting in a strong drinks trade. The pub has developed a diverse customer base from families and pensioners to young adults and professionals.

Average weekly net sales: £17,500

Wet/ dry split: 50/50

Average number of meals served per week: 1300

Brand: Two for One

The ideal candidate will be someone with a solid high volume food-led background, but someone who is also capable of developing the drinking side of the business. We’re looking for a manager who has a passion for delivering exceptional customer service and has a proven track record of building, developing and leading a committed and loyal team.
