    The best place to start for business rates Ect would probably be the local council Once you know the address you want. here is a link to local Gov. https://www.gov.uk/introduction-to-b...licensed-trade You should find some very useful information on this site just click on links within the site to follow though for more info in different categories. Was in the trade as bar manager but pre 1979 things have changed big time since then.

    But it just no good
    everthing is summarised on a percentage score with no real actual costing on things like water rates, council tax, and how much for a keg of bear

    When you use the google search term 'cost of running a pub' all you get is the about link; copied and pasted 1000 to the power of 1000 times

    Business and water rates are derived from the rateable value, you can look here to get an idea of what to expect.

    http://www.2010.voa.gov.uk/rli/en/basic/find

    see here for the multiplier

    https://www.gov.uk/calculate-your-business-rates

    Water board web sites will give you an idea of unmetered tariffs.

    Any beer wholesalers website will give you an idea of how much a keg of beer is

    OK so reading that link you provided; gave me this link
    http://app.voa.gov.uk/business_rates...uses_R2010.pdf
    valuation of public houses
    It would appear that the rates are about 10% of your turnover

    But I have also heard that there is another charge
    Based upon the square area of your premises

    The above link gives you a list of all the overheads to running a pub
    There is no rent of the premises in there

    I think at this point ,you need to enter into personal negotiations.
