Why buy?

The restrictions on pubs due to the Covid-19 pandemic have had severe financial implications for publicans across the country. Coupled with cost pressures from the national living wage it is easy to understand why some long term operators are exploring the benefits of a sale.

Taking a medium term outlook however there has possibly never been a better time to buy. Owning a pub is the ultimate lifestyle business and for owners with an engaged local community the rewards can be substantial. While the overall number of pubs has reduced significantly over recent decades it is worth noting that the number of larger pubs has increased with the serving of food now the norm.

Commercial property rents have reduced across the retail and leisure sectors recently. Further reductions in pub rents are likely moving forward which will assist in making the ongoing cost base more sustainable.

Moreover, there can be no doubt that when Covid-19 is under control, the entire hospitality sector will benefit from a sharp upturn in demand as people seek to resume normal life.
