About the pub

The Wynnstay Arms is a hotel and pub in Wrexham city centre, Wales. It is located on Yorke Street and directly on the western end of Wrexham's High Street. The building is Grade II listed for its surviving Georgian red brick façade, while most of the building was demolished and rebuilt in the 1970s.

The building has an exciting history, the Football Association of Wales was formed at the hotel in 1876, and Prime Minister, David Lloyd George is said to have announced the end of World War I from the building's balcony in 1918.

The Wynnstay is a wet led pub in the exciting city of Wrexham, it benefits from a strong wet trade as it is situated on the main drag in town. It's also a hotel with 47 bedrooms so a General Manager with rooms experience is needed.

There has been a huge tourist boom to Wrexham due to the popularity of Wrexham football club so there's bags of opportunity to maximise on that. The pub has a consistent food offer which poses huge scope to drive sales.

The Wynnstay is currently hitting budget due to room sales however there is a huge opportunity with two large function rooms and staged area in pub for events.

With a solid team structure including head house keeper in place, it's a great site for a new General Manager to go in and hit the ground running.

A day in the life...

Hi, I'm Lewis

My induction with Marston’s was tailored so I visited sites that were going to be similar to mine.

I spent time with a ‘buddy’ manager from a nearby site – he was a great guy and really honest and talked to me about the culture of Marston’s as well as the day to day running of the business.

My Area Manager, Nigel was really supportive and if he didn’t have the answer he would pull on his network of experts to support.

Dedicated support

My Area Manager, Nigel was really supportive and if he didn’t have the answer he would pull on his network of experts to support, including the recruitment and training teams.

Opening a new build pub

On the opening day there was so many people coming in but I wasn’t worried as I had every type of support there to help it run smoothly. The whole board came down for a meal at my pub, the CEO and the Managing Director are really nice people and down to earth too!
