If you’re thinking about finding a pub to let, you no doubt have lots of questions you will want to ask the brewery or PubCo. Here at Greene King we invite prospective tenant landlords to what we call a ‘general interview’ to chat about the business. This is a great opportunity to ask questions and find out more about letting a pub.

Even if you have a general interview set up, it’s worth considering beforehand what questions you need answers to. To get you started, in this video, our Pub Partners team discuss the kind of information you should be looking for when you meet the brewery.

Letting A Pub: What Do You Need To Know?

Dick makes a good point about talking to different people about the pub business; not just Greene King or the brewery who owns the pub you’re interested in, but other operators to get the big picture.

If you haven’t yet spoken to us though, here’s an opportunity! We’re just on the other end of the phone so if you think you’re ready to let a pub, even if you’re not sure whether it will be with Greene King, give us a call!

Get the big picture by talking to people in the industry, local area representatives, and even other landlords in your location. The more questions you ask, the better your decisions will be about letting a pub.
