Pubs in central London are facing a hike in business rates of more than a third under the new rating list coming into force next year.

Across the capital, bills for pubs will increase by an average of 25.6% over the next five years, compared to just 9.2% for the rest of the country, according to analysis by business rent and rates specialist CVS.

In that period, pubs in Westminster will see their rates rise by an average of 43.2%, closely followed by Camden (39.8%), Southwark (36.4%) and Kensington & Chelsea (35.6%).

Pubs in outer London areas will see lower increases in their rates, with Bexley, Hounslow, Croydon, Havering and Bromley all set for bills increases of less than 10%.

The only area to see a fall in business rates on average will be Barking & Dagenham (-4.4%).

CVS also highlights particular pubs that will be hard hit, including the O’Neill’s branch on Wardour Street, Soho, which will have to find an extra £102,000 next year- a 31.5% increase, according to CVS’s research.

The Anchor, located on the South Bank near London Bridge and Borough Market, will pay an average of £143,000 extra each year until 2022, taking its annual business rates to an average of £269,000 a year.

Wetherspoons at Camden Lock and Pitcher & Piano at Pollen Street, Oxford Circus, will pay an average of £137,000 and £131,000 extra each year respectively.

Other top risers include The Parcel Yard in King’s Cross station, The Shakespeare Tavern near Victoria station, and The Horniman near London Bridge.
