We love pubs
With 2,700 pubs across the country, our love of pubs runs deep.
Pubs have long been a great British tradition – and it’s one we’re determined to keep alive. That’s why we’re putting our money where our mouth is and investing in pubs up and down the country to help bring out their individuality and make them even better.
For many of us, the pub is a home away from home. So, high-quality, well invested pubs run by great licensees are good news for everybody.
We also tirelessly campaign on behalf of licensees to cut the excessive burden of business rates, reduce the taxation on beer and cider and promote the important role that pubs play at the heart of communities across the country.
lets celebrate pubs
We love pubs and we know how important they are to communities.
For a fourth year we hosted Brewing Good Cheer events in pubs up and down the country to share festive cheer with the locals.
And last year, TV favourites, Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford helped us to make a lunch at the Red Lion in Shepperton even more special.
Beer needs Your Help
Through the Long Live the Local campaign last year, we helped to put pressure on the Chancellor to reduce the duty on beer. After thousands of signatures and emails to MPs, taxes against the rate of inflation were frozen which meant drinkers saved an average of 2p on every pint of beer and 1p per pint of cider in 2019. This was a huge win for HEINEKEN and our industry. We’re hoping to repeat the success this year.
It’s vitally important that we continue to support this campaign to help protect our industry. This is a new petition so even if you’ve signed before, please sign again. It’s really easy – just add your name to the petition and send an email to your MP.
Our Commitment to Pubs
We’re making our largest ever annual investment in Star Pubs & Bars, investing £50m this year. This brings our total expenditure on our pubs to almost £190m over the past five years.
We tailor our investment to ensure each pub is relevant to the community where it’s based, including offering excellent food, brilliant service and a great environment.
Our investment this year will also create 1,200 jobs, which shows the significant contribution pubs make to the UK economy.
