Save Our Pubs

 Pubs are under threat of extinction


The lockdowns and restrictions needed to stop the spread of COVID-19 have had a devastating impact on pubs, clubs, brewers and cider makers across the UK. These businesses have faced additional restrictions throughout the pandemic, and without additional financial support from the UK and devolved Governments we could lose thousands of our locals.

Save our Pubs

CAMRA campaigns to save the Great British Pub from extinction.

We’ve used the ‘Pulling Together’ campaign to try and ensure the survival of pubs through the COVID-19 crisis, but we also want to see long-term change so pubs can thrive in the future.

The value of pubs cannot be overstated. The pub and beer industry supports nearly 900,000 jobs in the UK and contributes £23.6bn to the UK economy annually.

CAMRA commissioned research from Oxford University which found that people who have a local pub are happier, have more friends and feel more engaged with their local communities. Many pubs help provide space for the local people to meet, tackle loneliness, and strengthen the local community.
