Our Agreements

We offer a simple range of five agreements that will help you become a Star (this includes the Scottish version of our Foundation Tenancy). All you need to do is select the right agreement for you. Each of their key features are explained below.

The agreement that a particular pub is offered within is displayed on our website. Please note the following is a high-level summary of our agreements and it’s important you take independent legal advice before you commit to any agreement.

What’s the difference between a Managed Operator agreement and a Leased and Tenanted agreement?

In this video, we explain the main differences between the five types of agreement that we offer.

Management Agreement (Just Add Talent)

This is our Managed Operator style agreement. We set the offer, pay for all the stock, and cover most other costs. You’re responsible for delivering the offer and employing your own staff. 

Key features:

  • Term is open-ended and can be terminated by you with three months' notice or by us at any time
  • No rent, utilities or rates
  • No maintenance costs
  • You are paid a revenue share between 20-30% of net turnover
  • You will also get 20% of the pub's net profit paid quarterly in arrears

Leased and Tenanted Agreements (L&T)

The Leased and Tenanted (L&T) model is a traditional pub agreement that allows you to run your own pub business with the support of Star Pubs & Bars. All our L&T agreements are tied for beer, cider, alcopops and soft drinks, but free of tie-on wine and spirits.

Types of agreement:

  • Foundation Tenancy – England & Wales (Our standard agreement)
  • Foundation Tenancy – Scotland (Our standard agreement)
  • Investment Tenancy
  • Fully Repairing and Insuring Lease (FRI)
