Expert quotes:

Information from the experts: Palm, Chester

With numerous lockdowns, have you seen a boom of people eating out? Has it continued into 2022?

After each lockdown the rise in people eating out increased enormously however since the beginning of this year we have seen a dramatic decrease from year on year and pre-pandemic of people eating out.

Do people have more worries when it comes to eating out?

100%! People have more thought about how and where they are spending their money and making sure they are getting value for their spend.

Are you seeing more mid-week bookings? Weekends?

Weekends continue to be busy for us however outside of any school holidays the mid-weeks are not as busy.

Do you have more pre-bookings (rather than walk-ins) compared to pre pandemic?

We definitely are taking more bookings in advance than pre-pandemic; I think people are planning more now and again are keen to book places they feel their spend is appreciated.
