for Pub & Hotel Outlets

We know that 2020 has been a difficult year for the hospitality sector thanks to COVID19.  While during the summer, hospitality outlets were able to take advantage of the government’s incentives towards staycationing and eating out this is no longer an option as people begin to stay put for the colder winter months.
