Looking to run a pub?

The Claremont (new name) sits in a vibrant area overlooking the historic city of Bath, enjoying great views of the whole city. Previously a standard community proposition called the Rising Sun, we are investing heavily in this pub to transform it into a more modern and relevant concept in the area. Working with the very best operator, we’ll have the opportunity to drive a quality-led, community premium offer in the market.


Following transformational refurbishment work, the Claremont will have two main trading areas, set out with intelligent partitioning to create a cosy, but spacious, pub environment. The catering kitchen will be able to provide for up to 50 covers across the main bar and restaurant areas. The pub also has a conservatory. The pub is Cask Marque accredited and free WiFi is provided throughout. Outside, the current beer garden will receive a makeover and we plan to add a new outside area to the rear of the pub to make the most of its elevated position.


The domestic accommodation consists of three bedrooms, a kitchen and a lounge. Punch will ensure that this accommodation is in good order.

We’re planning large-scale investment at this pub, which will overhaul the current building and structure, at this time the pub name will change to Claremont.

About the local area

Bath is a large city in its own right, but also benefits from a high influx of tourism all year round. The immediate area surrounding the Claremont is home to a mix of transient rental hubs and younger professionals and is constantly changing to attract more professionals to the area.

This pub may suit

The ideal operator will have good, relevant experience at a senior level in a high street bar or restaurant. Quality and attention to detail is key in this demanding market and energy to drive and promote a new concept is essential.

The Partnership – Fixed

Ready to run your own business, manage your own team and define your own wage structure? Love working closely with an Operations Manager to build an incredible pub legacy with uncompromising standards and stand out guest experience? Then the Punch Managed Partnership is the perfect option for you.

Alongside tonnes of day to day support and a brilliant framework to grow the business, we provide an uncapped cut of top line turnover to pay yourself and your team in exchange for your Management Company providing the management services at the pub – it’s your structure to own, subject to management company costs including, but not limited to, staff costs, minor repairs and maintenance at the pub, security/door staff and insurance. We understand how important it is for a Management Company to completely own their own team.

In our Partnerships, we love pub obsessed entrepreneurs that help us lead the industry. We love to partner with people that help us create pub legacies that stand the test of time and become the hub of their community. We get that every pub has its own distinct character, so your Operations Manager will work closely with you to understand the true identity of your business, we can then help support you amplifying this, it’s a partnership after all!
