Let’s think back to 2007… During this year we saw many pubs hugely affected by the Smoking ban, in many cases closing pubs down… This devastation was only increased the following year with the financial crash of 2008, bringing nothing but misery to many businesses but, mostly to the Pub Trade.
We may think that these factors were the toughest for the Pub trade to face, however, experts are making dire predictions about the future of the British pub industry.
In recent years we’ve seen the number of pub closures stabilise, and not be as drastic as they once were with many pubs just being able to get back on their feet…. However, factors such as (yes it’s all you hear about) Brexit, increased business rates, inflation, changes in consumer demand and sterling deprecation are setting off all kinds of panic alarms in for Pubs across the U.K.
Without going into too much detail, these factors combined are the biggest threat Pubs have faced in years, and could be a huge risk for them and bring more closures. Things are set to look grim, we however, remain positive which in many cases a lot of landlords, rightfully so, are also doing!
How can the pub industry tackle all these issues at once and continue to trade? The solution is to increase sales, and to increase sales, they need more custom.
