I have to say how easy FindMyPub made the whole process of recruiting a management couple for our pub. Our situation was far from simple but the whole team at FindMyPub have been extremely professional to work with and we are delighted with our new arrivals passion and enthusiasm to help drive the business forward. Without the help of FindMyPub I am sure we would still be searching for the right people and I have no hesitation in recommending their services.
I have been looking for a pub lease/tenancy in Birmingham, by chance I came across a pub in Cradley Heath, not an ideal area for me geographically but the deal definitely suited. My enquiry was very swiftly and professionaly dealt with by Rob Maynard-Keene. Within a very short space of time I was signing the lease agreement, with the the refurb on track we will be opening on the 11th of May. My first time dealing with FindMyPub.com, definitely not my last, polite, professional with no question left unanswered. Thankyou.
I would just like to say what an absolute pleasure it has been working with FindMyPub. They found a suitable tenant for my pub quickly and efficiently and would not hesitate to recommend them for both buyers and sellers in the pub trade. I was kept up to date with all developments from start to finish and I always felt a real commitment from the team. Their fees were more than reasonable too. Well done FindMyPub!!
“FindMyPub.com organised two fantastic Open Days for us recently. Rachael and Lucy organised two options at both events, a recruitment meeting for potential new partners and an open surgery style forum for existing partners. They arranged meeting rooms at both venues, marketed the event, called out to the database to promote the events, as well as sending letters and emails arranging set appointments for both days. The organisation and planning at this stage ensured that both events far exceeded my expectations and created really meaningful discussions on both days.
Rachael and Lucy also attended the days and organised superbly, slotting walk in opportunities between existing appointments and ensuring the days ran very smoothly from every aspect. I was extremely impressed with both Rachael and Lucy’s professionalism and would strongly recommend the service FindMyPub.com provided Hawthorn Leisure”
“Robert, many thanks for the mail, but more importantly for your input in my journey to the Kings Arms, in Tamerton Foliot. As you know I have engaged with many players in the industry, both the large as well as small family organisations. From my side, it would be remiss of me not to highlight the fact that you and find my pub were singularly the only company that, without fail kept contact as promised and were always free with advice and input which was invaluable. I mentioned that it is my intention to operate more than one outlet over the medium term, and look forward to continuing our association further. Please keep in touch as you see fit.”
“Hi Rachael, Your services have been superb with adverts attracting a lot of interest from day one. Communication has been second to none and I would recommend your company to anyone wishing to sell, buy or lease a pub.
Many thanks once again.”
“Rachael has proved great to work with. With her help we were able to reignite a relationship between the companies that has been very beneficial. Upon meeting she was very professional yet approachable and is very knowledgeable of the industry. Her correspondence is always speedy and her ability to target activities for what we are specifically looking for is fantastic. ”
“I just wanted to write and say how impressed we have been with the whole process of advertising for potential tenants for our pub. From the outset we were given good advice and assisted with the presentation of our on-line advertisement, which turned out to be quite straight forward and was completed and on-line very quickly. Our advert and ‘Find my Pubs’, system of contacting suitable tenants, meant that we had several couples viewing the pub within a few days. In fact, the whole process from advertising to a successful tenant signing a contract was 19 days, which was brilliant. Thank you for all your help, which was very much appreciated. We will certainly use your services again, as we have several pubs and will also recommend you to others.”
“NewRiver have recently appointed FindMyPub.com as their new Recruiting Partner. It’s too early in the relationship to provide a testimonial confirming return on investment and long-term sustainability of the appointments. However, I can confirm that the initial set up of the contract, the professionalism and speed of response from Helen Lees and her team has been exceptionally good. I have also noted their drive to make things happen, identifying blockages and acting as an enabling support to the operational teams. FindMyPub.com are seen as an extension of our own team, they have provided valuable guidance and input which has positively influenced the development of our recruitment strategy. At this stage I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them as a quality partner and we are looking forward to reaping the benefits of this relationship.”
I have been wanting my own pub tenancy for over 10 years and finally found the perfect partner to share my dream with. We went online and found findmypub.com and the process began.
The company asked all the right questions and found out exactly what pub/tenancy we required and very quickly put us in contact with the correct brewery.
Findmypub.com would ring me weekly to find out how we were getting on and wish us luck! The process with punch has taken approx 4/5 months and we are now looking to move into our amazing country dream in 3 weeks. Without your company we may not have found our ideal pub so a big thank you to all your staff and I would recommend anyone who’s looking for a pub to make you their first point of contact.
A pub saved with the help of FindMyPub.com
I chair a volunteer group who were trying to save our village pub, The Royal Oak in Great Wishford, Wiltshire. The freeholder had had no success in finding a new landlord and his proposed lease terms meant we couldn’t take it on as a community venture.
When we publicised our efforts, we had extensive media coverage which led to many offers of advice and help. One expert mentioned FindMyPub.com. When I contacted the site, the staff were extremely friendly and helpful and we chose to promote the pub with the site.
The results were beyond our wildest expectations - over a dozen serious enquirers came forward. We chose to support one particular couple who have now signed an 11-year lease with the freeholder. The couple are now going flat out and completely renovating The Royal Oak with substantial financial support from the village and, so far, over 400 hours of free labour.
FindMyPub is a great site run by great people.
“I found that the service that findmypub.com was amazing they were on the case immediately ! After filling the online form and then after our telephone conversation they were bombarding me with lots of new pubs that fitted my criteria , they were and still are very pro active in the search of pubs that suit your needs !! I would not hesitate to use there services in the future , thank you once again Debbie and Helen you found me and my wife a lovely pub !!! Hope to see you here for a beer and some dinner very soon.”
“FindMyPub.com provides us with a full recruitment service to marketing our pubs to screening all of our applicants. Their attention to detail and diligent approach provides us with all the necessary feedback and information we require to ensure all our recruitment activity is focused and successful.”
“Hawthorn Leisure have been working with Find My Pub since June 2014. During that time I have found the quality of service and applicant to be of the highest standard, with many successful placements achieved already in our relationship together. I would have no hesitation in recommending the services of Find My Pub to any business which recruits either Tenants, Leaseholders or Operators to run their Pubs.”
Thanks for the help at the initial stage in my project I must say your website is by far the best I have come across for narrowing down a nationwide search given my rather specific criteria. If for some reason the proposals in play come to nought you might hear from me again if not I will invite you to a launch party. All the best,”
“We’ve been working with the Find My Pub team for a number of years. They have a good understanding of our business, our agreements and what we’re looking for in prospective operators. Because of this, they are able to provide us with great quality leads. We work closely with the team at Find My Pub to ensure that they understand our priorities and consequently they make a real difference where it matters most. The additional marketing tools Find My Pub offer such as e-shots and ‘pub of the week’ give us another avenue to use to showcase our opportunities, and we have seen a good return on these. Working with Find My Pub has had a real impact on how we attract and recruit operators.”
“Very impressed with all the assistance that FindMyPub.com gave me in my quest to, well, find my pub! From the outset, the help was detailed, friendly and thorough as was the communication and it remained so throughout my search. I can highly recommend the service! Cheers FindMyPub.com! I’ll look you up again when I leave my new pub!”
