Economies of Ale - Changes to the UK Pub Industry

Geoff Riley

27th November 2018

More than 11,000 pubs have closed in the UK in the last decade – a fall of almost a quarter. Many smaller pubs have closed as the industry has consolidated towards the larger-scale chains. The ONS has published a detailed statistical report on the UK pub sector - well worth a read from a business economics perspective. Although the number of pubs is down, employment in the industry has grown.
