By forging strong partnerships, providing incentives and offering guidance, we boost business and open up new revenue streams while establishing a loyal following for this well-loved British staple.

Great British Stays

A stay in a pub is where you’ll find real places, real people and real stays – Great British Stays. Explore real Britain from the comfort of a great British pub. Founded on passion and built on loyalty and character, Stay in a Pub is for people who appreciate true authenticity.

Our History

Stay in a Pub was established by Paul Nunny in 2013 to compliment the beer accreditation body, Cask Marque where he is Managing Director. By 2019 the website listed 1,700 pubs with rooms and partnered with the UK’s largest pub companies as well as over 1,000 free trade establishments. In 2019, the company raised funding via a group of Angel Investors to build a new website with an integrated booking engine which would take the business to the next stage in its development.  At this point, Charles Cryer joined as CEO and Harry Hill as Chairman.

In some cases. This is determined by the pub’s policies. If you want to pay in advance and are not asked for payment by the booking system, you should complete your booking then contact the pub directly to make payment over the phone. You should quote your Stay in a Pub confirmation number (found on your confirmation email) when you speak to the pub.

Stay in a Pub does not charge a booking fee. Any additional charges or taxes you do see are defined by the pub and local tax rules.

Some properties require a prepayment. The prepayment is an amount charged by the property, ahead of your stay. The date of the payment, and how much is charged, depends on the property’s prepayment policy

You may be charged a prepayment or deposit according to the property’s prepayment policy. This is done to verify your credit card, where a temporary hold is placed on an amount until after check-out. It’s best to contact the property for any charging queries.

You cannot use third party vouchers when booking on our website. You will have to follow the procedures described by the organisation who issued the voucher.

No, we don’t charge booking fees.

Each pub has its own breakfast policy. If breakfast is included, you will see it listed in the booking options when you make a booking. If breakfast isn’t included, you can see if the property provides it by checking the available facilities. After you book, this information can also be found in your confirmation email, and you can see it when you view your bookings in your account.

Prices shown include VAT and any local taxes. Tax requirements change from time to time. If tax changes occur after you book and before your stay, the taxes applied to your stay will be those prevailing on the date that you check out. After you book, tax information can be found in your confirmation email, and you can see it when you view your bookings in your account.

The price shown is for the room for the entire length of your stay

Unless specified, all the facilities listed under the room or accommodation type are included in the price. Other items such as breakfast, dinner, taxes or service charges will be specified separately when you book. After you book, this information can also be found in your confirmation email, and you can see it when you view your bookings in your account.

Pet policies are always displayed on the pub’s Accommodation Policies when you make your booking and on your confirmation email. Stay in a Pub also identifies ‘Dog Friendly Bedrooms’ within our listings

You can ask the pub about arranging a late check-out when you get there. Just be aware that it depends on what’s available at the time of your stay.

Check-in and check-out times differ for each pub. You can find them in the Accommodation Policies section when you make a booking. If you’ve already made a booking, you can see check-in and check-out times in your confirmation email and when you log into your account.

You can request an early or late check-in in several ways: You can specify your intended check-in time while making the reservation. Alternatively, at the time of booking you can request a check-in time outside of the standard hours using the ‘Special Requests’ field on the booking form. After your booking and prior to your arrival, you can contact the pub directly, using the contact details found in your booking confirmation. Please note that the pub cannot always accommodate this request; they will be happy to let you have your room early if there is availability, but there may be nobody to welcome you if you arrive late at night. It’s always best to check with the pub directly in this case, to avoid any disappointment.

A Double Room has one double bed and a Twin Room has two single beds. If a room is called Double/Twin, it can be set up for either type. You can specify your bedding preference in the ‘Special Requests’ box during the booking process

Added costs for children or additional guests, if any, are not included in the reservation price. When you make a booking, you can request an extra bed or cot for a child in the “Special requests” box. If you’ve already made a booking, you can request an extra bed or cot using the link provided in the confirmation email or by contacting the pub direct.
We recommend contacting the pub prior to arrival to make sure they have an extra bed or cot for you. You can find their contact details in the confirmation email and when you view your bookings in your account.
