The Federation of Licensed Victuallers Associations is the UK trade association for self-employed licensees in the pub trade industry.


It was formed in 1992 when the National Licensed Victuallers Association was shut down, and the FLVA used the northern office of the NLVA. In December 2009, the Chief Executive, Tony Payne CBE, retired.[1][2]


It is based in Brighouse in West Yorkshire.


It represents self-employed licensees of public houses (pubs) in the UK, and local Licensed Victuallers Associations. A landlord of a pub is known as a Licensed Victualler, the derivation is from a victualler of goods.

The Annual General Meeting is held each year in November in Scarborough in North Yorkshire.

It offers advice on becoming a licensed victualler and working in the pub trade, outside of the larger pub chains, tied houses and franchises
