Brits are set to spend £80m in pubs, restaurants and bars this Easter weekend.
The bank holiday weekend will contribute to a £91m in extra spending across the industry in 2018, according to spending analysis from Liberis.
On average, Liberis predicts high street retailers’ card transactions within the food and drink industry will increase by 11% compared to a normal weekend.
Restaurant, pub and bar owners are expected to win big this Easter with a 4.5% increase in spend over the Bank Holiday compared to a normal trading week.
Commenting on the findings, Rob Straathof, CEO, said: “With the Easter Bank Holiday weekend right around the corner, business is clearly booming for UK pubs, bars and restaurants.
“Brits looking to enjoy the Bank Holiday are looking forward to splashing out on long lunches and spending time with friends and family in the country’s best bars, pubs and restaurants – fingers crossed the weather stays bright for it too!”
