← Landlords protest after pub swearing ban gets them sacked

Szymanowski's Avatar Jump to comment 18 by Szymanowski

'Landlord' in this context means 'pub manager'. Pubs are often owned by breweries, which have control of which beers are sold. Brewery-independent pubs are called "free houses".

In other contexts in the UK 'landlord' has the normal definition of a property owner who leases property.
