Looking to manage a pub?

The Joseph Holt pub estate currently consists of 125 houses, which continues to evolve and grow – this means we’re always looking for good, new managers. We’ve got a wide range of pubs from busy city centre inns to countryside food houses, and all that go in-between, meaning there’s a pub to suit everyone.

We have three different routes of how you can become a Joseph Holt pub manager:

  • A salaried Pub Manager
  • A self-employed Retail Partner
  • Tenant

Retail Partners

This gives you the opportunity to develop your own business, with the full help and support of Joseph Holt behind you. Essentially you have the same support and guidance as a managed house but you run the business side yourself.

Before you become a retail partner we ensure the interior and exterior of the pub are of a sufficient standard and it remains our responsibility for on-going building repairs.

We also retain ownership of the fixtures and fittings, the stock for resale and all the running costs of the pub, such as electric, gas, water, utilities and marketing.


Our tenancy arrangement is perfect for those who prefer to work on their own initiative with the freedom to run their pub the way they want.

It can be highly cost-effective proposition, while you still have the option of full central business support, including bill qualification, personal license application, plus cellar management training.

It all adds up to the sort of rewarding experience you would expect working with a leading family brewery.
