CGA have shared with us their March Market Recovery Monitor for the GB Pub, bar and restaurant markets.
The main take-outs are:
- Around 41,100 sites (or 38.2% of the total) have a garden, terrace or other outdoor area that they can trade from—which includes, after clarification from the government, car park space. This means roughly two in five licensed premises will have some sort of footprint in which to operate.
- Pubs will be reaping much more benefit from outdoor opening than restaurants. Our data suggests four in five (80.5%) community pubs in England, and even more food pubs (86.4%) have outside space to use—but just 11.9% of casual dining restaurants and 7.2% of other restaurants have that luxury
- Outdoor reopening will suit some regions more than others. In the largely rural South West, more than half (51.1%) of sites can potentially trade outside, but the proportion is below a third in London (33.1%), where space is at a higher premium.
- In Wales, where hospitality is due to reopen outside from 22 April, 42.1% of sites have outdoor areas. But in Scotland, less than a quarter (22.9%) will have any space to use when the sector is able to open outdoors from 26 April.
