We do not ask you to invest your own money into the pub- you simply pay a £2,000 bond. We cover the costs of all Gas, Electric & Water (for the entire building including the accommodation), Sky & TNT Sports, Business Rates and Security & Entertainment Packages are also available.

Pub life with perks

Our sites come with rent-free accommodation above the pub. On the rare occasion where living on site isn't available, we offer increased accommodation support payments; these will be discussed with you at interview stage.
