Robinson's Acquires Cheshire Treasure!

2nd October 2019 Paul Andrews

Robinsons Brewery, a family run business from Stockport who celebrated their 181st birthday at the weekend,  has acquired The Egerton Arms near Broxton in a private deal from Marston’s Brewery.

Situated in the heart of the Cheshire Plains, the former station pub/hotel, now destination pub, is renowned for great quality food and hospitality and will join Robinsons as a tenanted pub.

Managing Director (Pub Division), William Robinson said: “We are thrilled to welcome this historic Cheshire pub to our family.  We aspire to offer great hospitality experiences to our customers and The Egerton Arms is a wonderful example of a pub that does just that; having traded successfully for many years under the management of Jeremy Woodward and his team. We are delighted that the entire management and staff team will join us for the next phase of the pub’s evolution.”

“This continues our aim to develop our tenanted and managed estates through strategic investment and acquisition of pubs that are either trading well or have the potential to do so.  Our like for like tenanted operating growth last year 2018 was fuelled by well-placed pub investments, acquisition and training and we wouldn’t rule out further acquisitions into either side of our pub estate if the right opportunities become available.  This is typically where a good food and drink offer would work in a village or neighbourhood setting with letting rooms as an added bonus.”

The 181-year-old 6th generation Stockport-based independent brewer and pub operator now owns 260 pubs, inns and hotels across the North West; including The Egerton Arms which was acquired with the assistance of Licensed property specialist Fleurets.
