Good, honest business values bind our forward-thinking agreements to suit you. We were the first brewery in the country to hold an accredited code of practice – an important step in setting a higher standard for fairness in pub businesses.

With Batemans, you have choices. Our agreements empower you to own a pub business and run a pub as a self-employed operator. Starting a pub business with as little as an investment of £8,000, we offer ‘Reduced Risk Business Purchase Agreements’ for some pubs and publicans. Others might thrive under a ‘Profit Partnership Plus Agreement’. Flexibility is key, and we’re here to discuss the various options with you during the application process to ensure we find the right agreement package for you. 


We understand these are uncertain times, and people seek reassurance when embarking on a new business. This agreement aims to minimise the risks associated with owning a business. We prioritise work-life balance, ensuring reasonable hours and family holidays. This agreement allows you to reap the rewards of business ownership, including the option to sell the business or give notice to leave early should your circumstances change.



Under this agreement option, you contribute a deposit called the Profit Partnership Investment. You take charge of the business as a self-employed operator with our support. You pay an agreed rent and purchase drinks at Free Trade ‘cash and carry’ prices. When it’s time to move on, within this agreement’s terms, you can return the business to us, and we’ll refund your Profit Partnership Investment after considering inventory depreciation.
