Before You Apply

Running your own pub can be rewarding

We have some stand out pubs that would be ideal for people with the rights skills and passion looking to take their first step. We will always be on hand to support you throughout the sign-up process and then ongoing whether it’s training or just keeping you up to date with new industry news, to give you all the tools and skills you need to run your pub.

What’s most important is having well-rounded business skills, a focus on the customer experience and a can-do attitude. Running a pub can be really rewarding when you put your dedication and know-how into it every day, taking care of who you bring into your team and creating an environment that your locals can’t stay away from! If you’re ready to be centre of the community, loved by the locals, and the place to be for those on their travels, then maybe running a pub is the right thing for you.

So maybe you’re an experienced pub licensee looking for a new opportunity, a business person looking for a first venture in hospitality, or chef seeking a venue to showcase your talents. We’re confident we’ve got a venue that will suit you.

Before you apply to run your own pub business, here are some factors that you need to be aware of and to take into consideration:

• Taking on a tenancy business involves a significant financial outlay.  You need to be conscious of the amount of capital you will have to invest from the start.
•  Take lots of advice and read up as much as you can on the law, how the agreement works, what you can expect from us and what we will expect from you.
•  You will need training. Our pre-entry awareness training is compulsory.

If you are interested in finding out more about us and taking on one of our pubs please get in touch. We can then grab a coffee (or a pint) and have an initial chat about how it all works. Please contact our Operations Manager, Dominic Rowley, on
