The Barley Sheaf, LiskardSt Austell Brewery is one of the few remaining traditional breweries and each of their pubs has an individual personality and soul. It is refreshing that there are still some of the tried and tested ‘old school’ methods and principles still in operation. I for one wish St Austell Brewery continued success in helping to maintain the classic British Pub tenancy whilst keeping up with the necessary 21st Century management practices and technology

Gary Swift, Landlord, The Barley Sheaf, Liskeard



New to the trade?

Pre-Entry Awareness Training (PEAT) is an e-learning package that identifies the main issues which need to be considered and investigated before signing a pub tenancy or lease agreement with us. It is accredited by BIIAB, the Ofqual regulated awarding body which is part of BII, the professional body for the licensed retail industry.

The programme costs £20 + VAT and will take on average 2 hours to complete. Successful candidates will be provided with a BIIAB certificate to confirm that they understand the obligations and responsibilities of taking out a tenancy or lease.
