Don’t call time on your pub business yet

It’s concerning to see the number of pub closures in England and Wales has surged in the first half of 2023. According to a recent article in The Guardian, 383 pubs shut their doors in just six months, nearly matching the total for the whole of 2022. The looming threat? Amongst other factors, planned rises in business rates that could further burden the already beleaguered sector.
