“I first enquired about running a pub with Hall & Woodhouse in January 2022, and from the very first contact I cannot speak highly enough of the interactions I have had, there have been some bumps in the road, but they were always around to offer support or a solution.
My first meeting was very informal, which certainly put my mind at rest, and the following meetings all followed a very relaxed tone, even my final sign off meeting with the Director.
There has always been someone to help and listen, and the support from the marketing guys has been great, especially as I built my own website.
My Business Development Partner has been aligned with me since our first meeting, and this gives me the comfort to know we can talk at any time, and that he “gets it”
As it’s my business, it’s great that I am able to stand and fall by my decisions, for some this might not be what they want and they might seek the comfort of lots of corporate support, but for me Hall & Woodhouse have given me the opportunity that I genuinely relish and enjoy.
My advice to anyone thing about making the move would be to be very considerate of the work life balance, plenty of long days, but my business is 20 minutes from the beach and I get there at every opportunity. I also wake up every morning with not a chimney pot in sight!”
