The Successful Publican By Sean Cassidy
Paperback: $15.69
Ships in 3-5 business days.
There are very few, if any, books on the market that take prospective publicans by the hand and lead them along the path of choosing a public house and entering the licenced trade. The Successful... More > Publican is full of invaluable tips and information written by a man who ran a successful country pub in the beautiful village of Barham, Kent. The Duke of Cumberland remains, under its current ownership, a classic example of a successful country pub with an excellent reputation. This is not so much a trade text book as it is a narrative that gently removes the rose-tinted spectacles from the aspiring publican to reveal the reality of running a successful public house. The reader is taken from the point at which a decision has been made to enter the licenced trade to completion day and beyond. A 'must have' book for the prospective and existing publican. An excellent preparation for the realities that await when seeking a career in the licensed trade.< Less
