Chalkhill Blue


We are lead Mechanical and Electrical Consultants for Marston’s plc and have worked in close collaboration with this fantastic client since 2008.

Founded in 1890, but never a company to stand still for long, Marston’s are now one of the UK’s top pub businesses and have a proud heritage and an exciting future.

The Challenge

For us the challenge at the new Chalkhill Blue pub in Andover was to work alongside our client in the launch of something completely new and unique for Marston’s and their customers.

The pub, a new build, is the first and the flagship for a new brand and a very different customer proposition; the ‘Rotisserie’ pub. These pubs specialise in ‘Red Tractor’, farm assured, rotisserie cooked chickens and have the capacity to handle 180 covers.

For many years we have been a part of the great success of Marston’s ‘2 for 1’ pubs so it was brilliant for us to be in at the start of an exciting new concept.


The Outcome

Chalkhill Blue is now open, thriving and proving enormously popular with customers. Marston’s have opened around 30 pubs a year in each of the past 7 or 8 years and we are delighted to be working closely with them in growing a range of pubs which deliver great family offers at really competitive prices.
