Number of pubs in the United Kingdom (UK) 2000-2017

Number of pubs in the United Kingdom (UK) from 2000 to 2017 (in 1,000s)

Number of pubs in the United Kingdom (UK) 2000-2017 This statistic shows the total number of pubs in the United Kingdom (UK) from 2000 to 2017. Except for a small recovery in 2010, pub numbers have been steadily decreasing. As of 2017, there were around 48,350 pubs operating in the UK.
Looking at the figures by ownership type, it appears that independent pubs have fared better in recent years than those owned by pub companies or brewers. The number of independently owned pubs rose significantly between 2009 and 2012 and the gap between the share of independent and brewer or company owned pubs has been closing.

The main contributors to the decline in pubs have been those owned by a pub chain or pub company, particularly leased or tenanted pubs, which have more than halved since 2008. Pubs tenanted or leased by brewers rose by almost a thousand in 2012, before falling in the following years. Managed pubs owned by brewers however have increased, from 2,300 in 2013 to 4,00 in 2016.

Several factors have been suggested for the reason in the decline in public houses, or pubs, in the UK. These include changes in going out behavior, the 2007 smoking ban, rising rents and beer prices, which may have impacted businesses.
