The latest data from S4labour reveals an increase in like-for-like hospitality sales in May, with an overall rise of 6.6% compared to the same month last year. 

In London, sales were up 9.7% year-on-year and non-London recorded a 5.9% rise compared to May 2023.  

Wet-led venues experienced a modest increase of 3%, whilst dry-led sites saw a significant boost with an 8.4% increase in sales compared to last year. 

Richard Hartley, Chief Growth Officer at S4labour, commented: “The industry’s performance in May has been encouraging, particularly when we consider the extra bank holiday last year for the King’s coronation. With both London and non-London venues showing robust growth, and the significant rise in sales in dry-led sites, we can see a growing trend towards dining out, possibly fuelled by warmer weather.”
