What are our available pub tenancies like?

Punch has a portfolio of around 1,300 quality pubs across the UK.  Using our extensive industry experience we ensure each pub has just the right offering for its location, its local customers and the competitive environment. Hence every Punch pub has its own unique atmosphere based on its location, the local customers and, of course, the publican running it!

Are you looking for a pub for lease, or wanting to enquire about our available pub tenancies? Call us now on 01283 501999, we are ready to take your call.

We use our experience to categorise our pubs according to their specific strengths to cater for certain groups of customers. By grouping our pubs in this way, we make it easier for you to shortlist the available tenancies that will suit you. It will also help you to build a focused business plan to ensure that you operate your pub in the most effective way, ultimately making a success of your business.

We start by categorising the pubs based on their location and proximity to their target audience – there are three different groups;

Community Pubs
High Street Pubs
Destination Pubs

Community Pubs

Community Pubs form the backbone of our estate.  These local pubs are found on the street corner, in suburbs, neighbourhoods and on housing estates, in towns and villages all around the country.  At its core the Community Pub should always provide a relaxed and friendly atmosphere for customers living in the neighbourhood. To excel, Community Pubs need to be at the hub of their neighbourhood and exist as a focal point for locals.  Supporting the many and varied interest groups of the community is key, whether this is darts, pool, fund raising, local schools or business networking. whatever they may be, is key. Just as a Community pub needs to accommodate the different types of customer within its own neighbourhood, the environment from one Community Pub to another varies tremendously.  It is this diversity that makes the Community Pub what it is.

Punch High Street Pubs

Punch High Street Pubs tend to reflect the busy bustling activity outside their doors.  Successful High Street Pubs change their offers throughout the day to meet the needs of very different customers. By day, a High Street pub is a sanctuary to the weary shopper, be it breakfast, coffee, a quick bite at lunchtime, a refreshing cup of tea or chilled glass of wine. By night the High Street pub changes into a town centre bar, as retail and office workers stop by, alongside local residents that soon become regular visitors.

Our Destination Pubs

Our Destination Pubs are in the main focused on delivering an occasion. Although they are usually out of town, they are worth travelling to because they offer something special. The majority of our Destination Pubs are sought out for their food, whether it’s value meals – 2 for 1, 2 for £10 and the likes, a traditional Sunday Lunch, or fine dining. It is not all about food though, the drinks selection and creating an appropriate pub environment are equally important and many Destination Pubs also rely on some local trade.

We then segment these categories based on the appropriate offer for the core customers. Each of our available pub tenancies or lease categories can then be segmented into one of the 3 following;


1) Value
Being competitively priced against the local market competition is fundamental to this value proposition. Pubs within the value segment consistently use discounting and/or price mechanics (2 for £xxx etc.) to attract customers.  The pubs' marketing is price led; and the service and environment is focused on dealing efficiently and effectively with high volumes at a low margin spend per head.

2) Mainstream
The mainstream offer on a pub is based around a combination of product quality, service and price.  The offer must consistently deliver good service and classic food and drink ranges.  Marketing communications focus on quality and service, with the use of some price mechanics to drive trade. Major brands are stocked but there is the opportunity to trade up from the standard offer for example to a cask ale, or a better quality wine.

3) Premium
This offer is based on great quality and great service. It is not a price sensitive proposition. It focuses on delivering a complete customer experience. Marketing is quality led with an evolving offer, often driven by calendar occasions and the seasons. Other things that come into play are food provenance, local and seasonal ingredients, premium brands and high service levels with a personal touch.  This is an aspirational environment which consistently delivers a great customer experience.
