Design/methodology/approach – Profiles the changing nature of the public house sector using published reports and current literature. Comments on the emerging trends and the impacts that they are having on the UK public house sector. Findings – Reveals that many of the old-style licensees have not been able to adapt to new trading circumstances and are preparing to leave the industry. Practical implications – Indicates that pub-owning companies need to recruit a different type of lessee or tenant in the future, characterized by a dynamic sales presence, able to continually generate incremental improvements in pub income. Originality/value – Reviews the changing characteristics of the UK public house sector.
