Is your dining experience ready for 2017?
We work with hotels and restaurants across the country and spend a lot of time assessing their dining experience and creating new food and drink experience that will engage their current and future customers.
For hotels providing a bar, café, lounge or restaurant presents challenges above and beyond the usual operations of the hotel. However, even though it seems a challenge the rewards of running a food or drinks service can be great and provide a boost to sales.
Our Menu Tips:
• We love a classic. Dishes that everyone can relate to and enjoy are popular in rural hotels outside of city hubs. One of our favourites is the traditional Sunday Carvery. This is something the whole family will love and will draw in locals as well guests to hotels. Now the winter weather is here take advantage of the ‘comfort food’ people are craving.
• A themed night. The classic curry night or steak night is another idea we like. Themed menus can appeal to people who want something different from the usual menu and allow hotels to play around with food that has better margins. Showing people that a hotel is aware that people like variety will win over some new custom. If the themed menus are styled well it can be a great way to create regulars for your themed nights. But beware no one likes a half-hearted attempt at a themed night make sure it is different from your usual menu.
• Make your print menu looks exciting. Add a splash of colour and update them regularly because no one is impressed by a tired menu with crinkled edges.
• Play up to your chef’s strengths. Menu’s that make the most of the chef’s talents make for better quality dishes.
• Make sure your social media icons are on your menu so people can leave you reviews on the food and the dining experience. If people like your menu, then it will be a great source of publicity and free marketing.
