Connect with guests this
festive season

More than 1,100 diners told us how they’re planning to dine out for the festive season,
what they’re craving most, and what they’d like to see in the new year.

As we enter the busiest season for restaurants, we asked people how they’re dining out and looking to celebrate the holidays. They want truly memorable experiences and can’t wait to enjoy a meal out and about.

Meeting increased demand while dealing with staffing shortages, supply issues, and regulations requires efficient operations. Tapping into diner insights helps restaurants make decisions about how to have the biggest impact, plan ahead, and make sure seats are full.

In October 2021, over 1,100 diners across the UK and Ireland shared what they want and how they plan to celebrate the holidays.

Get the insights along with practical tips you can use, including—

  • How often people are enjoying restaurants
  • How they’re planning to celebrate the festive season
  • How far in advance they’re booking experiences

We hope these insights—as well as the daily updated data on our State of the Industry hub—give you the information you need to help your business thrive and make up for lost time.
