Govt legislation 'great news' for pub landlords

The Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) has welcomed the Government's decision to introduce a pub adjudicator to protect the nation's pubs from large beer companies, or 'pubcos'.

With 28 pubs closing a week it is vital that publicans, who are on the frontline of keeping our valued community pubs open, are given protection from heavy handed business practices from the big pubcos.

Today's announcement is great news for publicans and pub goers alike.

Over the last decade many thousands of pubs have lost as big pub companies have squeezed them out of existence with sky-high rents and beer prices.
