What a tenancy entails

Taking on a pub tenancy is an affordable route to becoming a pub landlord. A Trust Inns’ pub tenancy means that you are renting, not buying, premises from us for a fixed amount of time (see our agreements page for details of how long each agreement can last).

During the tenancy you will be self employed and it becomes your responsibility to employ bar and kitchen staff (if relevant) and pay their wages. You will pay rent on a regular basis, which is reviewed at regular intervals. You will also be responsible for fixtures and fittings including glassware.

Part of the tenancy and lease agreement will also mean that you will participate in a “tied agreement”, which means that you will agree to purchase beer, lager and cider from Trust Inns’ approved suppliers.

Many see a pub tenancy as a more cost effective way to enter the industry. For full details of what our agreements entail please follow this link

They have helped me no end.  I was new to the management post and thrown in at the deep end.  Trust Inns has helped me with the running of the pub and paperwork.  My BDM and credit controller have been very good.
