  The news today announcing the 10pm curfew for pubs and bars, the Governments latest “finger-in-the-air” scheme to control the spread of Covid-19, initially came as another demoralising hammer-blow to us, losing us what on paper are nine of our often most profitable hours of trade.

Was Eat Out To Help Out a Good Thing?

So, it is a few weeks now since the Eat Out to Help Out (EOTHO) scheme officially ended, which has been time to reflect on it and how it has affected us.
