Update 24.10.20

Hi Everyone,

It is with a heavy heart that we must let you know, we have had a member of the team test positive for the corona virus. At this difficult time our priority is the safety of both our team and patrons. The team member that tested positive is at home self-isolating whilst they recover and is in good spirits.

We have spoken with Public Health England and they have said the risk is low. PHE are happy with all the measures we have had operational since we re-opened (hand sanitisers, protective screens, socially distant tables & seating, temperature checks, track & trace, and all staff wearing masks) to name just a few. However, in the interests of the safety of everyone involved at the Marquis, we have made the decision to temporarily shut the pub. Although this is beyond what we were advised to do by PHE, we think it is the best thing to do given the circumstances. The health & wellbeing of both our team and guests has always been our highest priority.

Our entire team are in good spirits, they are being well supported through this by the site management. Everyone who works at the Marquis Wellington is going to get a test as a precaution.

The pub will undergo a disinfectant misting process then a detailed deep clean, completed by a professional external contractor, prior to any reopening procedure.


We will only re-open when we feel it safe to do so for our team, customers and local community. Together we will beat this virus.

Stay Safe & Thank You.

The Marquis Team

The Marquis Wellington

 Serving Leicester since 1801

Sitting on the edge of Leicester city centre on London road, the Marquis Wellington is a haven for the ‘real pub’ goers. The historic building houses a cosy interior with vintage fittings, and a raft of real ales, great wines and local beers. A menu of hearty good food will tempt the most discerning foodies, whilst the large beer garden is perfect for families and groups of professionals alike, thanks to four individually-heated beach huts. The Marquis Wellington is a step away from the usual stainless steel city centre bar. It’s a place to relax, talk and enjoy great food and drink. What more could you want.

What’s On

Ever So “Environmentally” Sensible

Climate change is a real threats to all our futures, we all need to start doing things differently before it is too late. As a business we actively take steps to be more sustainable.  Whilst we can’t change everything immediately, we have made a start, see below.



Increasing “plant-based” food items on all our menus.

Reducing food waste throughout our sites.

Switched to eco-friendly straws, napkins, and toilet rolls.

Reviewed our waste recycling, separating our food waste, glass and cardboard.

Working with suppliers to reduce unnecessary packaging.

Switching all our Electric and Gas to a of 100% renewable energy supplier.

Began to change from gas cookers to electric induction cookers in our kitchens.

When water boilers need replacing these will become electric rather than gas.

Some of our sites even give their vegetable off-cuts away as animal feed!

Where possible, we are installing electric car charging points in our car parks. The MD now drives a fully electric car, other company vehicles are Hybrids.


We will keep looking for changes we can make now and in the future. 

If you can suggest other practical and sensible action we can undertake please let us know 🙂
