Wet-led Pubs to Receive Cash Grant

The Christmas Support Payment for wet-led pubs will support pubs that predominantly serve alcohol rather than provide food and have been severely impacted over the festive season due to temporary local restrictions.

Eligible businesses may be entitled to a one-off cash grant of £1,000 from their local council in areas under Tier 2 or Tier 3 local restrictions.

Local councils will use their discretion to identify the right businesses to receive this funding, you should contact them if you think you may be eligible.

 

Eligibility

Your pub may be eligible if you:

  • are based in England
  • derive less than 50% of your sales from food
  • are in an area subject to Tier 2 or Tier 3 local restrictions since 2 December 2020
  • were established in the pub before 1 December 2020

 

Businesses excluded from the fund

You cannot get funding if your business:

  • has exceeded the permitted state aid threshold
  • is in administration, insolvent or has been struck off the Companies House register

You must notify your local council if your situation changes and you no longer meet the eligibility criteria.
