When you become part of the Greene King family, you become part of an established group of thousands of pubs nationwide and over 200 years of licensed trade experience. That not only means you can take advantage of Greene King’s buying power, but our all-round specialist help and advice too – whenever you need it.
Every year, Greene King's buying team negotiates and purchases supplies, services and utilities for our estate of managed pubs throughout the UK. As one of our Licensees, you access this buying power too. We've set up discounts, special rates and exclusive offers for the things you need to purchase every day, so you can buy better than your competitors.
Award-winning beers and guest ales
As brewers, we're very proud of our award-winning ales. Alongside our famous brands, such as Greene King IPA, Abbot Ale and Old Speckled Hen, it's our policy to offer an extensive range of seasonal ales throughout the year. We also work closely with other UK brewers to offer guest ales on a monthly basis.
Business rates advice
We offer a free Business Rates Advisory Service via an external expert, to help you check whether your business rates can be reviewed. If the answer is yes, they will handle the review at no cost. (All rates appeals must be channelled through Greene King.)
Legal & Licensing support
Our Licensee website has loads of information to help support you and ensure that you understand the legal obligations of running a pub. There are free tools to help you comply with the law and we also have a Licensing Support service provided by our partners TLT solicitors.
Greene King Food & Supplies Service
We can take the hassle out of managing your food. You can use the buying power of Greene King’s managed pubs division. We provide full menus including ingredients, allergen information, cooking instructions and training – all supported by personalised point of sale and printed menus, we even supply the crockery! If you know what you are doing with food and want to serve your own food, you can purchase individual ingredients from us too.
Your pub may have dispense monitoring equipment installed, this will help you manage your business and save money. Dispense monitoring ensures that draught products are served in the very best condition by ensuring products are delivered at the correct temperature, line cleaning is carried out to best practice standards and dispense equipment is performing effectively. By measuring the exact volume of product dispensed for every drink, you can ensure issues are quickly identified and addressed.
You can participate in our long-standing and expertly developed value promotions. We provide regular deals featuring free stock or free point of sale as well as occasional, limited edition, flash sales that are even better value for your business (although they run out quickly!)
Ready made campaigns that make it easy to add value for your customers – for example ‘Pie and a Pint.’ They come complete with stock, food, marketing support materials, social media images, margin calculators and full roll-out plans.
We’re always here to support you. So if your business experiences difficulties through no fault of your own, we'll work with you to help sort out any problems.
