The local pub plays an important part in community life, with many now also providing vital services like local shops, post offices, putting on cultural activities and running community events, whilst providing communities with a safe, supervised drinking environment helping local authorities tackle alcohol misuse.

Local pubs also play a big part in the economy, with the Pub and Beer sector employing over 900,000 people nationwide and contributing billions to the UK economy.

Food Pubs bring people together, a place for friends and families to meet, and communities to build. As a result, almost 1 billion pub meals are sold in the UK each year.

Publicans can buy all of the catering food supplies they need from Booker. Currently, a case of 48 Chef's Larder Texan Burgers is under £20 and bags of Chef's Larder Chips costing just £1.39 when you buy a case of 6, which means that publicans can really take advantage by offering simple, great value meals.

Drink Pubs also give incredible support to UK beer and alcohol manufacturers, with 82% of beer sold in pubs being made in the UK. At Booker Wholesale, there are some great deals running, such as 11 gallon kegs of Carlsberg at only £84.99.

Publicans can also now save £5.50 on 12x568ml cases of Magners Original/Pear cider and £4 on 70cl bottles of The Glenlivet Malt Whiskey. And not forgetting the allocated driver, when you buy 2 cases of 24x275ml Orange & Passionfruit J20 get a 12x275ml case of Apple & Raspberry J20 FREE.
