High Street Restaurants and Bars; Tireless Gladiators
Restaurants, Pubs & Bars have had to fight a long hard battle just to remain in the game.
And for the Hospitality sector, what a battle this has been. Lasting longer than some wars, this has been the sector worst hit.
Against all odds, like gladiators, they have had to fight hammer and nail to survive, and with a bit of luck, thrive.
From one side of the arena, Brexit, which took a large number of their staff and made supplies more expensive and harder to source. From the other side, Covid-19, which brought 3 lock down waves that partly stripped them off their remaining weapons: their savings, their energy reserves & endurance.
It is now that the dust is settling down, that we can witness the survival of the fittest.
