The UK's biggest pub landlord has warned its publicans to be braced for a tough year ahead as costs increase and consumers face further economic uncertainty.

Enterprise Inns, which has a portfolio of 6,289 leasehold and tenant pubs, has increased the prices it charges to tenants by 4.3% as it passes on higher bills from brewers.
