The ALMR has signed up its 100th member, with County Estate Management joining the organisation.

The signing means that over 50% of pubs and bars in the United Kingdom are run by members of the organisation.

Nick Bish, the ALMR's chief executive, said: "The addition of County Estates increases the ALMR's critical mass and gives us greater clout when talking to politicians and other key influencers.

"One hundred members is a great milestone to reach in our 10th anniversary year."
