Deck the halls
The small details matter and they’ll make sure your establishment stands out above the rest! Achieve that festive feel in your restaurant or bar by changing up your table settings with Christmas table covers, napkins and crackers - perfect for setting your celebrations off with a bang! Simple lighting changes such as candles and fairy lights can also add a cosy ambience to your establishment, and why not spread the Yuletide cheer with some festive tunes!?
Experimenting with your Christmas menu is essential in hospitality today, although guests will expect the traditional Christmas dinner, they may also want a unique twist when eating out. Adding a personal touch to the ingredients and dishes you serve allows your menu to stand out and make for an unforgettable dining experience. Including a variety of vegetarian and gluten free options can truly make your menu a winning one.
Tempt your customers with seasonal cocktails and drinks. This is a great way to maximise on sales with very little impact and cost. Why not offer mulled wine and cider in our mulled wine kettle? Not only do these kettles look great, but they’ll bring a festive aroma to your bar! Make sure you have a mix of both alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks available, as studies show that non-drinkers are on the rise in London.
Social media is a great way of promoting your restaurant or bar over the festive season to get guests in the Christmas spirit. Entice customers with snaps from your establishment of people sharing the Christmas cheer, decorations and mouth-watering menu teasers.
