British pub group Greene King (Frankfurt: A0F66P - news) reported a drop in sales and warned weak consumer confidence and rising costs were set to continue, sending its shares down as much as 15 percent on Friday.

British pubs, bars and restaurants operator Mitchells & Butlers Plc (LSE: MAB.L - news) reported a 9.6 percent drop in first-half pretax profits on Wednesday, saying that consumer confidence has remained "fragile" throughout this year and last, sending its share price lower.
