Licensing law firm Poppleston Allen has launched ‘Virtual Pub’ - a video training guide to help operators identify common licensing issues in pubs and how to prevent falling foul of the law.

The free training video takes viewers through a ‘Virtual Pub’ scenario, accompanied by narration and top tips.

Jonathan Smith, Poppleston Allen’s managing partner said: “By creating the video, we’ve produced an accessible resource that licensees and their staff can use to learn. Rather than education through a sanitised set of notes, the video allows the viewer to see how the issues they face play out in a real life scenario and what to look out for.

“The video should form part of every operator’s check list when training staff, not only does it help identify problems, but it also offers help with suggested interventions to solve issues. It really is a fantastic practical guide that no operator or staff member should miss.”
