Welcome to Pub is the Hub

The pub is often the centre or hub of community life and can also provide essential services beyond the usual drinks, food or entertainment.

We are an organisation of specialist voluntary advisors for rural pubs and licensees who are thinking of broadening their range of services.

 

We encourage good licensees communities, pub owners, breweries, local authorities and the private sector to work together to match community priority needs with additional services which can be provided by the local pub and a good licensee .
