Bouncebackability being shown here in hospitality

More news, no ads


It has been an incredibly difficult time for the hospitality industry over the past two years. The periods of lockdown and the rules around social distancing really put many of the pubs and restaurants in the county under incredible pressure and many have collapsed as a result.

The problem was exacerbated by a lack of seasonal staff to work during the holiday periods – a double whammy caused by Covid and Brexit-induced changes to working permits. Just about every eating establishment was displaying signs advertising vacancies, with roles ranging from waiters to head chefs. The problem was endemic and the quality of food and customer service undoubtedly suffered.

Which is why it is so heartening to see some establishments bouncing back now.
