Relief Pub / Bar management Service

Relief pub, bar or club management cover for all in the licensed trade whether you are looking to go on holiday, need to go in to hospital or just need a short break from running your pub then you will need licensed Managers to run your business and that is where we can help you.

We are able to manage your establishment for you whilst you take a well deserved holiday, need medical attention or seek full time managers. Emergency management can be arranged to cover such things as managers walk outs or licensee resignations.

Our rates are very competitive and start from just £375.00.

Emergency management cover has a minimum charge of £550.00 per week outside the M25 or £650.00 inside the M25. One of our licensed managers could be on site within 12 hours. Additional emergency cover can also be booked for weeks and days during the period of the cover provided that we do not have a prior booking to fulfill.

All ordinary bookings require a 20% non refundable deposit (unless we cancel) payable at the time of booking cover and a further payment of 60% of the cover cost to paid two weeks before the cover is due to start with the balance of 20% to be paid within in two weeks of the cover ending. If emergency cover is required then the full amount needs to be paid at the time of booking.

PLEASE NOTE: As part of our service we like to arrive the night before the hand-over is due to take place and if possible stay the night after hand-back has taken place this way we can ensure that we are on site on the day you wish too depart and again on site should a problem arise with your return journey and you miss the hand-back date. Please if you're thinking of booking our services do not think of this part of the service as being an extra couple of free days cover, it is purely to insure you get away for a worry free Holiday.

Please use the table below as a rough guide to our charges. Please see below on how to book and obtain more information.
