Hospitality sales faltered last month with like-for-like turnover down by 6.9% versus the same period in 2021. The biggest contributor to this figure was food sales, which saw a drop of 12.7% this year.

London saw an increase of 8.9%, albeit, largely owing to a modest base point in 2021, when much of the Capital was still experiencing low footfall as a result of at-home working.

Richard Hartley, Chief Innovation Officer at S4labour, commented: “These are a sobering set of figures. This is the first significant indicator of a change in out-of-home eating and drinking habits and is a significant concern for our industry.”
