When any normal person thinks of a Bank Holiday Weekend they are usually jumping for joy for that extra day of their weekend! Here in the Hospitality trade Bank Holidays are a bit of a guessing game for us!
2 years ago we would always say we would be guaranteed to be busy all over Bank Holiday Weekend but a lot of it was drinkers, now though we never know what to expect! Take Sunday Lunch 24th August for example up until 2.30pm we had only done 17 meals which for a Sunday is completely awful then from 3-9pm we did just over 100 meals……. Crazy!
It just proves that the hospitality trade is no longer predictable and you just have to go with the flow!
