Our aim is simple - to partner with the best community pub operators who take pride in serving their local communities.

The leased and tenanted model is a great, low-cost entry to running your own pub business, but it only works if everybody wins together. It is our philosophy to be open and transparent. Our Partners enjoy freedom to buy their wines, spirits and minerals from wherever they choose. We offer a try-before-you-buy relationship where you see if working with Hawthorn is right for you and vice versa. Only when both parties are happy will we ask you to partner over a longer-term deal. We want every Partner to be successful.

Our BDM’s have one of the lowest pub ratios in the industry, and we pride ourselves on our strong relationships with our Partners. Our Business Development Managers are empowered to provide bespoke support for each Partner, rather than taking a blanket, one-size-fits-all approach. Along with dedicated business development, property, finance, training and marketing professionals offer targeted support and guidance for our Partners.

Watch our testimonials to see how working in partnership with Hawthorn could help you unlock both freedom to run your successful pub, with the support and backing of a team who are passionate and committed to making our pubs the heart of their community.
