What's it all about?
The Pubco Model
Is it right that publicans tied to big pub companies can pay above £110 for a barrel of beer, but independent publicans are able to purchase for less than £70?
Is it right that tied licensees are unable to make a reasonable living due to high rents on top of inflated beer prices?
Is it right that the unbalanced relationship between big property companies known as "pubcos" and their licensees is driving up prices in pubs, restricting investment in pubs and ultimately forcing pubs to close?
After nearly a decade of campaigning and failed self-regulation the Government is finally consulting on the unfair unbalanced relationship between pubcos and their licensees. Now is the time to speak up and get a Fair Deal for Your Local.
