Punch - Pub Business Opportunity

This is the perfect opportunity for anyone keen to take on their own pub.


PUNCH PUBS & CO. opportunities available now in the UK

This is the perfect opportunity for anyone keen to take on their own pub.


We consist of around 1,300 incredible pub businesses in the UK. The public house is a Great British institution, and it was this idea that led to the birth of Punch Pub & Co. in 1997. We want to link brilliant people with brilliant Great British pubs to keep them firmly at the heart of local communities.

Run your own pub with Punch Pubs

After expanding our portfolio and being listed on the stock exchange in 2002, we acquired some great brands, including Pubmaster, Innspired Group and Avebury Holdings. In 2017, Patron Capital and May Capital acquired us. In short, we’re not the only ones to have confidence in our brand.

2017 was a busy year as also relaunched our online ordering portal – The Punch Buying Club. It is mobile-friendly, faster and more efficient so our publicans can order when it suits them, access paperless billing, dispense data, as well as a whole set of other features. This was a game-changer.

Within 12 months, The Punch Buying Club took its 100,000th order and sold a staggering 100 million pints. To round off the year, we launched our online training portal: The Punch Progress Console. It’s a one-stop-shop, allowing our publicans to develop both their skills and businesses in a way that suits them.

Punch has taken giant steps forwards over the last year. We invested over £35 million in 2019, unlocking phenomenal pub possibilities for entrepreneurs across the UK. We have also opened our new Welcome Inn at Punch HQ and The Academy – an industry-leading training space with two fully working bars and a cellar, alongside a development kitchen, enabling publicans to learn in a classroom, a pub and a kitchen at the same time.

Ways to work with us

Management Partnership

The Management Partnership is a fantastic agreement and the ideal way to run a pub on a self-employed basis. You’ll have peace of mind knowing that most of the day to day bills associated with running a small business are not yours. This leaves you free to focus entirely on delivering a great retail offer whilst driving sales and profit and a ready-to-go concept with its marketing calendar.


Our Tenancy agreements vary between 3-5 years and offer a flexible approach to running your own business. Your pub is set up to trade, and you have the option to work with us to provide a food menu, or you can set up your own unique food offer. You will receive a high level of support and everything you need to run a successful business. From the beginning, you will have a dedicated Operations Manager, 12 support teams, access to training and development, business planning, operations and accounting expertise. This is an entrepreneurial agreement suitable for people wishing to have more significant input into the retail offer and allowing them to drive their business their way.


We offer a selection of lease agreements with a tenure of 10 years+, all of which fully repair and protected under the lease and tenanted legislation. Our lease agreements are a great way to run a pub business on a long-term basis.
