    Mitchells & Butlers sees no immediate signs of cost pressures abating

    "Margins are being adversely impacted by increased costs, most notably from wage inflation, property costs, energy and food and drink costs," Chief Executive Phil Urban said, adding that cost pressures were "not going away any time soon". The company, which operates brands such as Harvester, Toby Carvery and All Bar One, said like-for-like sales for the 28 weeks ended April 14 climbed 1.6 percent but were flat year on year. Rival pub operator Marston's Plc (MARS.L) on Wednesday also said it was impacted by adverse weather conditions but added that this was offset by strong trading in its brewing and taverns and leased pubs.

    UK's Wetherspoon turns cautious as wage hikes beckon, sales outlook dims

    No-frills pubs group J D Wetherspoon (LSE: JDW.L - news) said on Friday it expected staffing costs to rise in coming months, when a higher British minimum wage kicks in and, in a nod to fragile consumer demand, said growth in sales was likely to slow. UK pubs and restaurants have been hit by higher import costs as the pound has weakened following the 2016 Brexit vote, and rising inflation along with stagnant wages means many consumers have cut back on non-essential spending. Wetherspoon's prices undercut many of its peers and it has leveraged technology with a mobile application that allows customers to order drinks from their table rather than having to go to the bar.

    Snow and ice keep punters from pubs over Christmas period, says UK's Marston's

    The results from Marston's contrast with those from Mitchells & Butlers Plc (MAB.L) which kicked off the Christmas period trading results from pub operators earlier this month by posting a 3.9 percent rise in comparable sales. "Probably one of the reasons for that (weather impact on sales) is because Marston's has a bigger portion of their estates in the North (of England) and the weather impact was much worse there," Karl Burns, analyst at Investec, told Reuters. "The likelihood is that sales are going to slow year-on-year," Burns added after trimming his full-year estimates by about 2-3 percent.
