Most pubs with Punch provide living accommodation for our Publicans, inside the pub building – with domestic accommodation, including bedrooms, private kitchens and lounges.

But why? Well, there’s nothing quite like the quintessentially British pub when it comes to providing a cosy, homely place where everyone’s welcome.

Pubs have been around for hundreds of years and each one is unique. When you look at a pub from the outside, it’s usually in a building that you could easily imagine being a house.

From quirky pub names and memorabilia on display, to homemade pub grub and the games that have grown from the humble public house – there are so many reasons why we love them like our homes.

If you’ve ever worked in a restaurant or café then you’ll be well aware that your customers will often engage in polite chit chat, but you never really get to know them. That’s where pubs differ. Working behind the bar, you’ll get to know the regulars, and they’ll get to know you.

The tight-knit teams and regular customers mean pubs often feel more like big families than businesses. Staff will often stick around to catchup at the pub after the doors have been shut, and you’ll most likely look after the pub’s décor and facilities like they’re your home.

Pubs are a business like no other. You don’t just open up in the morning, serve your customers, and close up. Looking after your guests, and your team, is a way of life.

That’s why living in is a fantastic way for you to really make your pub your home and embed yourself in the pub lifestyle as a live-in Publican.
