Yesterday I met Kevin, the publican of The Fox and Hounds Beer House, Caversham. We discussed how his landlord is chasing the Fox and Hounds for large amounts of rent, despite the pub not being able to trade normally since the 20th of March due to Coronavirus restrictions.
I find this behaviour outrageous. The Fox and Hounds is a successful local business and a community hub for Caversham. I will raise this case and others like it with the Government.
I’m working to protect local businesses against bad behaviour by landlords: if your business is in a similar situation to Kevin’s, please contact my office at firstname.lastname@example.org #nopubnorent #campaignforpubs
