Fair Deal for Your Local

Fair Deal for Your Local campaign group held a rally in Westminster today. Fair Deal for Your Local campaigns against the unfair relationship that pubcos - companies that own their pubs & tie landlords into uncompetitive rents & purchasing arrangements - have with their landlords. This is supporters of Fair Deal for Your Local at Westminster outside the Houses of Parliament today -


The Red Lion pub, that The Pub In The Village is championing, is currently owned by Punch Taverns. Punch Taverns is a pubco.

  • Has Punch Taverns done right by the pub whilst it has owned it?
  • Has Punch Taverns done right by the landlord whilst it has owned the pub?
  • Has Punch Taverns done right by Sidbury village whilst it has owned the pub?
  • Has Punch Taverns done right by those who use the pub whilst it has owned it?
If you answered NO to any of the above questions then you should be interested in supporting the Fair Deal for Your Local camapign. Go to the campaign's website at - http://www.fairdealforyourlocal.com/.

#FAIRDEAL4YOURLOCAL  We are all campaigning for the same thing - pubs that can be allowed to be viable without being made uncompetitive by pubcos. The Pub In The Village is confident that the Red Lion can be a viable & successful business away from being owned by a pubco.
