Drinks sales dip for second consecutive week, CGA finds

Stormy weather has dented the drinking-out market and concerns around the Omicron variant have hit consumer confidence, CGA said.

Britain’s drinks sales have fallen short of pre-pandemic levels for the second week in a row, as average sales by value in managed pubs, bars and restaurants in the week to last Saturday (4 December) were 14% down on the same week in 2019, CGA’s Drinks Recovery Tracker shows. 

Drinks sales were between 6% and 15% down on 2019’s levels on every day of last week, with the shortfall peaking on Friday and Saturday (3 and 4 December).
