Although pub operators have suffered in the past 18 months or so, the opportunity to run your own site or even expand is potentially greater than ever if you set your mind to it.

Very few people have the money at hand to buy a pub outright so careful consideration of what you do need is vital. If you have a drive to succeed, the chances are there for you to do so. The Morning Advertiser​ has put together a 12-page guide – sponsored by Star Pubs & Bars – that could help you achieve your goal of running an operation of your own.

Star Pubs & Bars has a range of options starting at just £4,000. For that price, you could take on a management agreement in its Just Add Talent scheme that requires you to show your commitment and knowledge, and you could be on your way to the dream of having your own pub.

The Morning Advertiser​ editor Ed Bedington said in the guide: “We’ve also seen the emergence of returning players onto the market, with previous big operators coming back to the sector with ambitious plans to build up new operations and estates. Those players have deep pockets and strong ambitions, and that’s certainly bringing a new and competitive flavour to the pub property sector.”

Additionally, we have looked at a variety of areas such as scoping the scenario post-Covid and Brexit to see how operators have coped and how many took the unwanted time-out to improve their sites and are now looking to reap the benefits.

With every negative is a positive so although the number of pubs across the UK has diminished, there is now a greater chance of attracting more people to fewer sites.
