Optimism of business owners for their own business in the eating and drinking out sector in the United Kingdom reached a peak of 83 percent in February 2020, its highest level since the time of the EU referendum four years earlier. However, the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic contributed to another large drop in industry leaders' optimism for both the general market and own businesses, with values as low as 5 and 15 percent respectively in April 2020.
