The British Beer & Pub Association (BBPA) has published the latest edition of its operating cost guide for tenants and lessees.

The BBPA’s guide features data intended to inform those wishing to take on a tenanted or leased pub the costs involved in its running. It also gives existing tenants and lessees the opportunity to benchmark their businesses against industry norms.

It contains average pub running costs based on a range of pub models based on turnover and business type – for example, providing models for both wet and food-led pubs – and accounts for the significant variations in cost base.

The guide also includes the minimum and maximum operating costs, and provides a range of scenarios across different types of business.

Updates in this year’s edition include pay-TV and live music costs for all pub models as well as the introduction of a town and country pub model – bringing the total number of pub models featured in the guide to nine.

BBPA chief executive Brigid Simmonds said: “Whether you already run a pub or are thinking of taking one on, this new report is a must-read.

"It includes essential information on the current costs involved in running a great British pub and can be downloaded – free of charge – from our website.”

The BBPA’s cost guide can be found here.
