Fuller’s, the London brewer and pub operator, is set to acquire five new pubs from Marston’s in a deal worth £16m.

The deal, which comprises three leasehold and two freehold properties, includes the Wellington in Waterloo, the Pavilion End and Bluu in the City of London, the Hand & Flower in Kensington Olympia and the Red Lion Hotel in Wendover.

Simon Emeny, Fuller’s group managing director said: “These acquisitions are high turnover managed houses with a similar trading style to our own where we feel Fuller’s can add value.

“They emphasise our continued focus on London and our strategy to increase the number of bedrooms in our estate which is an area of growth for the company."

The properties

The Wellington is a commuters’ pub with 26 bedrooms situated above. The Pavilion End boasts one of the best beer gardens in the city. Nearby Bluu is in a Grade II listed building.

The Hand & Flower has nine bedrooms and a large function room, while the Red Lion Hotel is a listed 16th Century coaching inn with 26 bedrooms, a large restaurant area and a garden terrace.

The five acquisitions take the total number in the Fuller’s estate to 365, while the number of bedrooms in the estate has increased to 612, following the recent acquisition of the White Swan, Stratford-upon-Avon and the refurbishment and addition of bedrooms at The Drayton Court in Ealing earlier this year.
