Almost 1,000 hospitality venues have closed since July, report finds

The latest figures are according to the new market recovery monitor from CGA and Alix Partners, with independent venues and nightclubs hit hardest

Britain’s number of licensed premises fell by 980 between July, when the market fully reopened, and September 2021, according to the new market recovery monitor from CGA and Alix Partners.

The monitor indicates that small businesses have borne the brunt of closures, with independently run pubs, restaurants, bars and other licensed premises accounting for nearly three quarters of all closures between July and September, reducing the indie sector in size by 1%.
