Code of Practice

The Pubs Code Regulations 2016 (the Pubs Code)

With effect from 21st July 2016, Admiral Taverns are regulated by the Pubs Code, which was introduced following the passing of the Small Business, Enterprise and Employment Act 2015.

The Pubs Code places statutory obligations on us as a pub company and helps ensure that you can have confidence in your dealings with Admiral. The Pubs Code is binding on both Admiral and its tied licensees in England and Wales and may be used in pursuance of a claim of non-compliance. The protection of the Pubs Code will also be available to any leaseholder who acquires a lease through an assignment.

For further transparency our Compliance Officer will prepare an Annual Compliance Report which will provide a detailed and accurate account of Admiral’s compliance with the Pubs Code. The Compliance Report will highlight any identified breaches and explain what we have done to remedy the breach. A copy of our Compliance Report will be published on the Admiral website.
