Our Management Agreement could be perfect for you
At Star Pubs & Bars, Just Add Talent is our Management Agreement, which means you’re responsible for delivering the offer and employing the staff to help you achieve your goals. We provide the menus, and the fantastic brands and cover many of your pub running costs, including utilities, business rates and marketing. This gives you time to concentrate on the important stuff - executing a superb retail offer and employing and managing your staff.
Our Just Add Knowledge training programme has been recognised with a 'Best Training Programme' award from the BII NITAs 2022 ceremony which acknowledges our progress in creating a blended and supportive learning programme made up of two immersive stages.
Stage One is now an intensive virtual learning process that allows for dual assessment by both candidates and assessors – which firmly places you at the heart of this training.
Stage Two offers you a further opportunity to cement this learning with a residential, classroom training programme that follows on from hands-on, in-outlet training.

Going beyond induction training
We don’t stop at the start. Star Pubs & Bars wants to give you training and support in the long term too. That’s why we offer:
Cellar Services: Once you take over a pub – and within the first few weeks – our in-field technicians, called Innserve, will arrange to visit you for an in-depth training session for you and your staff on line cleaning and beer quality. It’s tailored specifically to your pub, and as part of this, we can also offer training from Cask Marque too. We also offer SmartDispense™ which is not only a great step towards a more sustainable operation but also includes a cellar servicing, line cleaning and support package that’s built around your specific needs.
Training: We take your success seriously. That’s why your dedicated coach will provide an Innside Knowledge follow-up, as well as visits whenever they’re required – all designed to ensure you make the most of our expertise.
In addition to all this, we offer further support and training to suit all needs, this ranges from bitesize online courses and webinars to in-depth, face-to-face training. Raising the Bar workshops and E-Learning courses on a vast range of topics, so you can continue your training and keep making progress.
