How can we help

The Pub Partners team at Greene King is here to help you make the right decisions about starting your own pub business. We know there are three stages people go through. First Researching. Then Planning. Before finally Applying to run your own pub.

To help you through each stage, we have created checklists and an email series which point you to the information and tools that will both educate and inspire you.


You are still welcome to talk to us whenever you want. You can call us on 01284 843200 or email We’re open during normal office hours and we’ll try and get back to you as soon as we can.


Tell us what stage you are at and we will give you the Checklist you need. Then over the next week you will get 5 emails which cover each area on the checklist. Basically, we are going to give you everything you need. You can then have better conversations with us or move straight on to Apply.
