Following the Plan B announcement from the Prime Minister, data from S4labour shows weekly hospitality sales have dropped by 9% when compared to 2019 levels.

The like-for-like decline was felt by both London and non-London sites, with the Capital experiencing a 16% drop in sales last week on 2019 levels. Non-London sites saw a smaller 7% fall in weekly sales.

The Chief Product Officer of S4labour, Richard Hartley, commented: “Even though there is not a noticeable change in hospitality sales as a result of Plan B, the announcement will certainly not help the situation—likely affecting corporate-led venues’ sales the hardest. Speaking to customers, operators have experienced hundreds and hundreds of lost covers and cancellations. As a result, hopefully the sector sees resilient consumer behaviour as well as no further restrictions.”
