Save Pubs from Extinction


Cheers to Choice


As pub-goers we want our locals to stock a wide range of beers, ciders and perries from local, independent producers when they reopen.

Pub landlords who are tied tenants are restricted in what they can sell and are often banned from putting on the products they know their customers want to drink.

That’s why CAMRA is launching the “Cheers to Choice” campaign and asking pub companies to help the whole sector recover by allowing tied pubs to stock local brews.

Please sign our petition to pub company bosses to ask them to allow and encourage their tenants to stock what we want to drink. Help make it happen sign the petition here

Save Pubs, Cancel Rents

The pub industry is fighting for it’s survival against Covid-19. CAMRA is calling on pub companies large and small to cancel rent for their tenants during the Covid-19 crisis.

In the pub industry, rent is charged to tenants based on the turnover of their pub. Pubs have been ordered to close during the Covid-19 lockdown, but many pub companies are still charging their tenants rent or delaying collecting it rather than cancelling it. If a pub doesn’t have any turnover, it shouldn’t be paying any rent.

Lots of pub companies and brewers have cancelled rent for their tenants, however many of the larger ones haven't. The companies are Ei Group, Greene King, Star Pubs and Bars, Marston’s and Punch.

You can ask the pub companies to cancel rents here
