Pubs Code Regulations 2016

The Pubs Code Regulations 2016 came into effect on Thursday 21st July 2016. Marston’s PLC is the landlord of more than 500 tied pubs and is a “pub-owning business” for the purposes of the legislation and is therefore subject to the provisions of the regulations.

The Pubs Code Regulations impose upon us an obligation to provide prospective pub operators with certain information during the recruitment process, which will enable them to make an informed decision about the business and the agreement they are considering entering into. The Pubs Code regulates the business relationship between Marston’s and our pub operators. This will provide prospective pub operators with a clear view of what they can expect when working in partnership with Marston’s.
