Other areas to consider


Taking a tenancy is in effect starting your own business so investment is required for start-up costs.
You will need sufficient funds to provide a bond, purchase stock, cover legal, training & administration fees and cover your first beer order.

You will also need some working capital and consider how you will pay for fixtures and fittings.

In-going costs differ from pub to pub but we recommend a minimum of £10,000 cash investment for a new pub business.

Read these 5 important questions to help you make the most informed decision you can about running your own pub.

Decide whether our terms are right for you.

We offer a 5 year Landlord and Tenant Act protected tenancy agreement.

We may also discuss a 1 year probationary agreement and a longer term lease option.

The Recruitment team will give advice and guidance on the above as part of the recruitment process to help you make your decision about leasing a pub.
