CAMRA comment on the sale of 150 pubs to Admiral Taverns from Star Pubs and Bars
Commenting on the sale of 150 pubs to Admiral Taverns from Star Pubs and Bars, Ben Wilkinson CAMRA National Director said:
“Far too often, we see large, regulated pub companies offload unwanted sites to property companies or retail businesses with little interest in their long term future. So it is good to see in this case an operator with experience of the tenanted model emerging as buyer – and crucially, that the tenants of these pubs will continue to have the legal protections of the Pubs Code.
“It is heartening to see Admiral’s initial commitment to integrate these pubs into their estate and their welcoming words to their incoming licensees.”
