Consumers' support for bars & restaurants during coronavirus pandemic in the UK 2020

Consumers in the United Kingdom have shown strong support to their local pubs, bars, restaurants and cafes during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The most common way to show support among consumers was to order takeaway food and drinks from their favorite places, which was done by 36 percent of survey respondents in April 2020. A large share of respondents chose to purchase vouchers or bar tabs, and donate. A small proportion of respondents had also taken advantage of outlets that had turned their operations to convenience stores, where customers could shop for food and drink items to use at home.
