Palmers, the Dorset brewer and pub operator, has signed up its first apprentice as a pub tenant, tenanted trade director Jayson Perfect has told M&C Report.

Sam Good, 21, has taken a full three year tenancy of the West Bay Hotel in West Bay after completing his training in house at both Palmers’ Brewery and Yeovil College.

Sam will continue to have the support and guidance of the team here at Palmers and we wish him all the very best.
