Cheers to your local!

We’re supporting a nationwide campaign to raise the profile of the important role pubs play in their communities. Here’s how you can get involved…

Backed by the British Beer and Pub Association (BBPA), the campaign celebrates the important role that local pubs play in our communities, culture and national identity. In the run up to the Chancellor’s annual budget, it calls on the Government to cut high beer tax to help keep British pubs open.

How can you get involved?

  • Click here to sign the petition to cut beer tax
  • Write to your local MP and ask them to put the issue on their agenda in parliament (find out how here)
  • Spread the word with friends and family
  • Check back on Your Place for a special celebration of our community pubs and what makes them so special (coming soon!)

Why is it so important?

Pubs, brewing and other related industries add £23 billion to our economy and support more than 900,000 jobs. A recent study by the BBPA also revealed that nine in 10 UK adults (89%) are pub-goers. Furthermore, 63% said pubs bring the community together, and 99% believe their local is a great place for celebrations and special occasions.

Our pubs play a really important role at the heart of their communities. They’re a place for people to eat, drink, socialise, celebrate and have fun. We’re proud of our relationship with local communities and we’re dedicated to bringing people together for many years to come.
