A third of Hall & Woodhouse tenants were recruited from managed houses in the last two years, it has been revealed.

The Dorset-based brewer has reported that 13 former managed house operators have taken on tenanted pubs, comprising a third of all successful applicants in the last two years. The number of online applicants from managed house backgrounds has also seen a “significant” increase, the brewer said.

Matt Kearsey, business partnerships director at Hall & Woodhouse, explained that the main reason managers are making the move is because the Business Partnerships Agreement guarantees a contract free of rent reviews. He said: “It is landlord and tenant protected and we are essentially giving our business partners a fairer share of the profit they make, through cheaper beer prices and machine splits.”

Hall & Woodhouse won Best Tenanted/Leased Pub Company 10-99 at the Publican Awards in March 2012.
