Traditional UK pubs have seen a decline in numbers since 1980 with numbers dropping from near 70,000 to under 50,000.

Traditional UK pubs have been closing at a rate of 28 pubs per week however, the amount of micro pubs have been increasing yearly with around 80 opening throughout the UK in the past two years. Micro pubs have much lower expenses as they usually do not offer food or entertainment whereas traditional pubs have costly overheads and tend to have lots of other competition.

While also being much cheaper to manage, micro pubs also offer customers a different taste in ale as they often support local brewers which they may not get to try from a standard pub or via a supermarket.
