New Pub Coming To Aber?

marstons aberystwythDerbyshire based brewery Marstons which owns a growing number of pubs across the UK has submitted a planning application to the council it can be revealed.

The new development could create up to 50 jobs and would see the new pub built alongside a 24 bedroom hotel on one of Aberystwyth’s main roads. The vacant lot beside Welsh Government Office has been earmarked for the development.


The application was submitted to the local council just before Christmas 2011, and if a decision is made soon it is believed that construction could begin as early as this spring with the works being finished between Christmas and early next year.

The hotel would not be operated directly by Marstons group and it has yet to make public the name of the hotel chain who would operate the hotel.

Marstons Taverns are an ever increasing site across the UK and in previous experience tend to offer a restaurant along with a family friendly environment.

This latest development brings good news for the local jobs market if plans are to go ahead, although whether the development will lure people away from town centre pubs and eating establishments remains to be seen. However due to its intended position relative to that of the town centre it may be more likely that it will attract other people to the area, rather than taking them out of Aberystwyth centre although it may begin to compete for business with pubs in Llanbadarn Fawr village.
