About the pub
The Old Inn is a popular traditional pub in the heart of the Penllegaer community. Penllegaer is a village and community in the City and County of Swansea, Wales, to the east of Gorseinon, within the electoral ward of the same name. It is situated about 4.5 miles north west of Swansea city centre, near junction 47 of the M4 motorway. The Old Inn is situation across from the local tourist attraction Penllegaer woodlands and adjacent to the busy M4 motorway services. 
To the rear of the Old Inn approximately 1 mile away is the Gorseinon Business Retail Park, a busy retail park that offers many well-known industry brands such as B&Q, Supermarkets, Retail Shops, Gym’s as well as manufacturing plants and other industrial businesses, Therefore footfall and traffic past the Old Inn is significant.

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!
