Great for current owners - Not so great if you are a student,
This review is from: The Publican's Handbook (Paperback)
I am currently researching into the area of hospitality and leisure for a possible future (considering parents currently are in the trade) and I spotted this book and bought it due to the name.
I was surprised to find that the book was quite short and only really focused on possible ideas which could improve a current business, focusing largely upon the food side of a pub, and also advice on modifying the current systems of marketing strategy.
I felt that the sections on the food were interesting to learn about, focusing on Italian and Indian in pubs, and gave some insight for personal recomendation for current food based pubs.
The marketing section of the book would be useful for someone wishing to improve the reputation of the pub and also increase sales of hight profit margin beverages.
I would give this 5 Star for a current owner.
If you are considering a future in the trade, i would recommend this book only if you already have some knowledge in the area from wither books or experience.
