About Us


We believe a little strategic disruption can go a long way. By shaking up the way you usually do things, it’s surprising what great results you can achieve. 

Our team is expert in all the areas that matter to your hospitality business. We can support and coach you through projects while helping you fine-tune your systems and services through our consultancy.

Do things better, get in touch and let’s chat. 


Structure and efficiency

Whenever anyone pitches themselves with the line that using us can increase profits I’m extremely dubious. It’s every businessman’s dream to use a service that gives them a tangible return. However Ruckus has transformed my business, not only with an immediate impact of solving stock issues which were haemorrhaging money, but also introducing a back of house working culture that created STRUCTURE AND EFFICIENCY. I have seen a direct increase in profitability and a great return. I can’t recommend them enough. The ability to get simple, relevant and effective information allows you to drive your business forward more efficiently and more profitably.

What We Offer


Your pub or bar team are probably doing stocktakes; and they probably hate doing them too. On the other hand, our team does the best pub and bar stocktakes in the world, powered by Barmetrix; and they LOVE doing them!

Are you happy with the information you receive from current liquor stock control and bar inventory reports? We do them better than anyone else in the world, so why not free up your team to do what they do best; leaving our experienced stocktakers to identify your bar stock performance - reporting to you on waste, overstocking, discrepancies and poor GPs.



 The Challenge

Challenge & Solve

We love a challenge at Ruckus. If you’ve hit a brick wall we can help you climb it.

When we ask clients how we can help, they tell us pub & bar stock control, productivity, staff development and customer experience are top of their wish list. 

Sometimes it takes that extra pair of experienced eyes looking in to your business to unlock the performance potential of your teams and enhance your business profitability.
