Since taking over at The Stamford Arms Justin and Wayne have had a smooth transition between pubs. “We’ve had no real challenges so far. We’ve spent time getting used to the scope of the business and then building relationships with our guests, community and team has been the real focus for us so far.”

Recognising that the pub was in a good position when they took over, the time has really been about recognising what makes The Stamford Arms so popular and ensuring that the correct team is in place to welcome customers.

“The Stamford Arms really is a fantastic pub, which has many different facets to it. We have a great restaurant and outside pods, a big bar area for socialising and live music, extensive garden space and even a street food shack. All of this makes the pub what it is and we’ve also built a fantastic team around us to ensure our guests are well looked after!”

“A great pub is one that is there for everyone, whenever they want to use it and for whatever they want to use it for. It may be a book club, family meal, live music or drinks in the sun on the patio. The biggest thing for us is that we have a team that is welcoming to all guests and that they enjoy all aspects of their visit to us.”

And for those who might be considering taking on their first pub, Justin and Wayne’s advice is simple. “My advice to anyone wanting to run a pub is to just go for it! It gives you a fantastic opportunity to be a part of a community, a great work and social life and it is so rewarding to see happy guests in your pub!”
