    May 17th pubs re-opening indoors

  • Statement from Camra Monday 10 May 2021


    10/05/2021 Customers will reap social and health benefits of a pint down the local when indoor opening begins from 17th May: CAMRA Commenting on reports that the Prime Minister will announce that indoor re-opening for pubs in England is set to go ahead from 17th May, CAMRA National Chairman Nik Antona said:

    “CAMRA are delighted that indoor opening is on track to go ahead from 17th May, so customers can enjoy the social and wellbeing benefits of being back inside the local – not just in its beer garden.

    “This will also help the thousands of pubs, particularly smaller community locals, that do not have outside space and who desperately need to start getting money through the tills again.

    “Whilst this next step is very welcome, we aren’t out of the woods yet. Distancing and table-service only restrictions will still mean many pubs can’t operate at full capacity with many continuing to struggle to make ends meet as a result.

    “The Government should continue to support the beer and pubs sector in the months and years ahead by backing CAMRA’s campaign to cut the rate of duty on beer served in pubs – with the savings passed on to publicans and consumers. This would help pubs to compete with cheap supermarket alcohol and encourage responsible drinking in the supervised setting of the community pub.”
