Consultancy Services

I’m able to provide low-cost practical business advice to both start-up and established pub businesses either remotely (by phone, post or electronically) or on-site at your pub (although this option will necessarily involve additional cost).

With over 35 years experience of the hospitality industry, especially in public houses, we have tools and methods ready to help your business that are tried and tested.

My areas of expertise can help you maximise your existing income streams, exploit new market areas/customer bases and achieve an optimum level of efficiency for you and your pub. If your current pub is struggling I can provide an objective view and where possible rescue from disaster.

Working with you we can agree the best course of action to create a positive change to your business, communicate with you on the progress you and your team are making and discuss recommendations to make your business better now and in the future.
