The Ship

Take the reins of a quaint village pub in picturesque and verdant West Hanningfield. Guests love it for its fresh, seasonal menu, local craft beverages and beautiful green surroundings.


The pub and location

The stunning outside area is the ideal setting to ingest the panoramic views of the rolling hills. Or, during winter, guests can bask in front of the log burner inside. You’ll also love the spacious garden with a bar and pizza servery.


You’ll be running a pub that is in fantastic condition, as it underwent an investment and transformation in 2022. We’re seeking an inspirational partner to drive this business to its full potential. 


Ideal publican

We’re seeking a talented food and drink operator with a proven track record of running large-volume sites and putting on showstopping events. 


You’ll motivate a talented kitchen team that excels under your leadership, providing a premium dining experience. 


You’ll fully understand what makes a pub a drive to the destination venue.

In short, you will know how to execute every part of operating your pub to attract 5-star ratings. Promoting your business on social media will be second nature to you.


Private accommodation

This excellent business opportunity provides two bedrooms, living space, kitchen, and bathroom, all recently refurbished. 

The Partnership – Fixed

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!
