John Marston

Stoke on Trent, ST3 2NQ

Please leave your details and our team will be in touch. * fields are required




The John Marston is a large detached community local pub situated in the suburbs of Blurton, in the middle of a densely populated housing estate, close to Britannia stadium home of Stoke FC.  Blurton is a district in the south of Stoke on Trent.

Pub Layout

The John Marston trades from two separate areas. The large horse shoe bar is well stocked with a great range across the board. There is a large raised area which currently houses a pool table which is popular with the locals.  The current tenant has made great use of the large open plan are by creating a more softening atmosphere with cosy area with sofas. The front lounge leads on to a large room which houses its own bar and could hold functions for 80 – 100 people.  The plot of land surrounding the John Marston allows for 20 cars and a grassed beer garden which hold 8 large benches. There is a huge potential to hold community fates or festivals on the land.





The John Marston is a community pub which benefits from its central location on a housing estate. The pub caters for it’s locals with a weekly entertainment programme and is home to both darts and dominoes teams. There is also potential to take on a pool team to further boost weekly trade. Currently trade is all drinks based but with the introduction of a fully equipped catering kitchen as part of the refurbishment there is the chance to welcome families and other customers wanting a bite to eat.
