Although being a publican can be hugely rewarding, you should take into consideration that running a pub can be a change to your lifestyle. It won’t just be the usual 9-5. You will need to work unsociable hours, including late nights and weekends.
If you haven’t got pub experience, but you think running a pub sounds right up your street, you should think about getting a part-time role in your local pub – just to make sure it’s the lifestyle for you.
When you take on a Punch pub, you must also consider the costs involved. Depending on the agreement that suits you, there could be costs involved like a deposit, fixtures and fittings, your first beer and food order, plus the legal fees associated with taking on your pub business. Don’t forget, you may also have to buy uniforms for your staff, plates, cutlery, glassware and catering equipment.
