Consultation description

This consultation seeks views on measures to improve the practical operation of the Pubs Code which regulates the relationship between pub-owning businesses with 500 or more tied pubs and their tied pub tenants.

The proposals reflect areas for improvement identified in the report the government published in November 2020 on the first statutory review of the Pubs Code and the Pubs Code Adjudicator.

We’d like views from anyone with an interest in the operation of the Pubs Code, including:

  • the pub-owning businesses covered by the Pubs Code
  • tied (and previously tied) tenants and those that represent their interest
  • businesses who may be landlords of tied tenants with preserved Pubs Code rights upon the sale of their pub
  • trade bodies
  • legal organisations familiar with administrating the provisions of the Pubs Code
  • the Pubs Code Adjudicator
