UK pub builder, Marston's, has purchased a plot of land on the site of Sanofi's former pharmaceutical plant in Dagenham, where it plans to build a new tavern and restaurant later this year.

The former Sanofi site

The site is set to become a multi-occupancy science, business, manufacturing and retail development, under the banner business-east. Plans for a Sainsbury’s supermarket, a hotel, health centre, retail area and manufacturing units are already in place.

Up to 50 full-time and part-time jobs will be created at Marston’s once the building is complete.

Mark Bass, Sanofi’s land development and partnership leader, told the Barking and Dagenham Post: “Marston’s is a popular and well-known brand that provides quality food at affordable prices in a family-friendly environment which can also cater to the business sector during weekdays.

“We feel Marston’s is ideal to blend into the overall business-east programme that we are trying to create and will become a big attraction as well as a significant local employer.”

Marston’s runs more than 2,000 pubs and bars across the country.
