the naked truths behind live-in pub work Stripped down and raw!

UK live-in pub work - one of the most exciting choices you could possibly make

However it's definitely not going to be a walk in the park! Some sites choose to glamourise (for self interest) every aspect of live-in pub work, now let me tell it how it really is.
