Good Pub Companies, Arkells Brewery, Swindon, Open Day.

By | December 22, 2010

 At long last, something that we have been trying to achieve has happened.  We have been desperately trying to send would be and existing licensees to decent Pub owning companies where they have a serious opportunity to make a long term career in the industry. Barrel-Dregs articles are the companies that we cannot name and would not recommend, we need more recommended decent companies to send people to.

Arkells Brewery, Swindon, Wilts.

Arkell’s Brewery is organising an open day for new landlords at The Tawny Owl, Taw Hill, Swindon on Tuesday 25 January 2011 from 1pm – 8.30pm.

Arkell’s is, like any other family brewery, looking for new landlords – a pub’s most valuable asset. Running an Arkell’s pub is one of the best ways to be self-employed, with full responsibility for the business, with the experience and support of a 160-year old brewery when needed. Landlords purchase the tenancy, fixtures, fittings and stock from Arkell’s. Licensees sign up for a fixed term – often three to five years and pay a monthly rent reviewed on a three-yearly basis. The brewery also occasionally takes on salaried managers.

Arkell’s is well known and respected across the industry for the support it gives its licensees.

Please spread the word – and contact Arkells on 01793 823026 if you would like more information.

      Hi Paul,
      I haven’t had any details of open days in that area, apart from Punch and others and I would not personally recommend any of the major Pub Co’s at this moment of time, however tempting they may sound.

      Give the Family Brewers in your preferred areas a call, if you haven’t done so already.

      Certainly give Arkells a call, my contact there has departed.

      Be careful and if you want an opinion email me at
