Venue Insight December Issue

Another year done, and another Christmas is upon us! Hospitality is certainly in better shape than it has been in the last 3 years and the industry has once again shown that with the cost of living crisis and recent rail strikes that it is perhaps the most resilient sector in the UK economy. It’s so important for the growth of the UK and the wellbeing of our population because it’s at the very core of people’s spirit. Hospitality must be protected at all costs.

It’s important for restaurants to understand their risk exposure. Food quality, gratuities and licenses are all specific to restaurants yet won’t be covered by standard business insurance policies. Restaurant Insure by NDML Insurance, offer a menu of unique insurance policies to choose from. Their menu of covers includes core policies, such as public liability and employers’ liability, as well as additional policies covering specific hazards that uniquely affect restaurants.

Remember when the excitement of Christmas used to be all about surprises? This festive season you can still surprise your adult diners by offering something other than the obvious mulled wine. Some daringly different cocktails created by Rooster Rojo Tequila’s mixologists will not only surprise guests but will enable you to serve cocktails right through the day – and late into the night.

It can sometimes be difficult to provide customers with the most enjoyable and uplifting experience – especially in January and across the winter months, but there are ways to make businesses as welcoming and engaging as they can be. This could be anything from lighting an open fire to keep customers cosy on cold, winter nights, serving healthy treats to add some spice to new year diets or playing music to create a more welcoming and familiar space. According to research by PPLPRS, the majority of people said that they prefer pubs that play music, with 66% of people agreeing that music adds to the atmosphere. Playing music could help to lift the mood, boost the environment and help to create a friendly and appealing space. It could help to give businesses a more upbeat feel, make people feel more positive and help to create the sort of comfortable and familiar atmosphere that people are looking for.

I’d just like to take this opportunity to say a huge thanks to all of our readers, contributors and advertisers for the continued support during a continued difficult time for the industry. We wish you a merry Christmas, and a happy, healthy and prosperous 2023.
