Hook Norton Brewery is a member of the British Beer & Pub Association (BBPA) and, as such, we offer high standards of fairness and transparency to our tenants.

This Code of Practice follows the pub industry Framework Code of Practice and is accredited by the British Institute of Inn keeping Benchmarking and Accreditation Service (BIIBAS).

As members of the BBPA, Hook Norton Brewery also subscribes to the Pub Independent Rent Review Service (PIRRS). The Code of Practice is not capable of being unilaterally altered and any amendments will be made in consultation with BIIBAS.

This Code of Practice sets out the principles that will be observed by the Company when offering pub businesses to rent and the obligations that are also required from our prospective tenants.

Both the Company and new tenants are required to sign a copy of this Code to confirm that both parties understand the terms and obligations set out. The tenancy agreement represents the main contractual agreement but this Code will have an effect and may be relied upon by both parties in the event of any dispute.

Hook Norton Brewery recommends tenants seek advice before signing this legal document.
