The poll also revealed that 25% said it could be the difference between staying open and closing down.
Jacyn Heavens, CEO of Epos Now, said: “It’s a positive that Philip Hammond has taken practical steps to relieve the burden on pubs in this country. The industry has been going through difficult times in recent years and it needs support to help it grow and prosper today and in the future. More needs to be done however to safeguard the long-term future of the sector.”
