Support our local pubs against budget increases

You will have read in the press that Boris Johnson and his team have announced the strong possibility of bringing forward the Budget to September. If Mr Johnson becomes Prime Minister and goes ahead with this, it is likely the Budget could be as early as either Wednesday 4th or 11th September, between the return from Summer Recess (3rd September) and ahead of Conference Recess (12th September).

A campaign is now underway to support our pubs and petition against a rise in beer duty, as planned for 2019.  At present, 1 in every 3 pounds spent in a pub goes to the taxman – if the duty is increased this will no doubt lead to further pubs closing. We would like to ask you to support us by signing the petition against further duty increases.

Have you a minute?

What Our Licensees Say

15 years with Batemans

An excellent Brewery to work with. We had help at every stage of the process and continue to have trustful business partnership today. We have succeeded with thanks to the genuine passion & care from the Batemans team.

They are a friendly bunch

I would like to say on behalf of myself and my staff, that we have always held Batemans in high regard for the support and help that I have always received. They are a friendly bunch, not a load of "so & so's". We have a good relationship - long may it continue.
