Fancy calling time in your very own pub?

If you are interested in running a pub, we have some of the most beautiful in the South West – along the Jurassic coast, in historic towns and villages, and amongst the rolling hills of West Dorset, Devon and Somerset.

It’s an amazing area in which to make your mark, and most importantly, a great place to call your home.

At Palmers, we pride ourselves on the quality of the people that run our pubs. All of our pubs are tenanted, meaning that individuality, energy and flair for great customer service are vital for success.

Running a pub is hard work, but it is really worthwhile. We are always on the lookout for people who are prepared for the challenge; people who are passionate about offering a great customer experience; and people who will partner with us to put our pubs right at the heart of their local community.

Quote Marks Glyph

We’re looking for people who want to stamp their own style on a business opportunity with passion and flair. We deliberately have no corporate image for our pubs. Therefore it is vital that the people that run them really make their mark and share the same family values that we do. We are looking for licensees with great ideas and bags of enthusiasm. This helps us build our reputation for ‘pubs selling food – not restaurants selling beer’!


Palmers is blessed with having a varied estate of pubs that cater for different markets. We specialise in encouraging newcomers to the trade as well as owning some of the most iconic and award-winning businesses for the seasoned operator to call their own.


We would encourage you to sign up for our ‘new pubs alerts’ even if your dream pub is not currently available, so we can get to know each other a little and be ready for when it does. Pubs don’t always make it onto the open market, and we would like to make sure you are in our little black book and don’t miss out!
