Robinsons Brewery, one of the largest independent family brewer’s in the North West, have announced the acquisition of The Three Mariners pub in Lancaster.
Purchased from Mitchells of Lancaster, the historic pub has joined the Stockport Brewer’s portfolio of 300 sites; which span across the North West, Cumbria and North Wales. The pub acquisition will bolster the brewer’s standing in Lancaster in addition to the popular Wagon and Horses.
The Three Mariners, which is the oldest pub in Lancaster, has seen much of town’s rich history and has had numerous ties to Lancaster Castle throughout its 600 year occupancy. The 15th century pub is one of only two sites in Britain with an original gravity-fed cellar and is the only cellar to be cooled by the natural spring seeping through from the castle rock.
William Robinson, Managing Director (Pubs Division) for Robinsons Brewery said: “We are delighted to have had the opportunity to acquire this historic tenanted pub in Lancaster city centre. The Three Mariners is a perfect fit for Robinsons and the purchase strengthens our presence in Lancaster. We remain committed to investing back into in our pub estate, supporting and improving our tenants businesses and we will continue to look for further excellent pub acquisitions, which will have a positive impact on our pub portfolio.”
