The opportunity

This stunning pub with letting rooms sits in the hamlet of East Knighton, four miles from the famous Jurassic Coast in Dorset and ten miles east of Weymouth and Dorchester.

We’re looking for a talented food operator who can maximise the lettings side of the business. You’ll ensure that this is the destination pub in a tourist hotspot.

This pub is a nuanced business. You’ll be running a high-specification venue we invested in to ensure a picturesque interior and a knockout garden. You must have experience running a seasonal business. Delivering a Rhythm of the Week beyond the norm is also essential. Attracting regular guests throughout the year is the key to business success.

The Countryman pub presents a unique chance for the right person to develop an epic business in a stunning part of the world.

 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!
