Pub, bar and restaurant re-opening sales compared to pre-COVID levels in England 2020

On the weekend of July 4-5, 2020, bars and pubs were allowed to re-open to guests in England for the first time since the UK government's imposed lockdown in March 2020. The 42 percent of pubs, bars and pub restaurants that re-opened reported that like-for-like sales were down 44 percent compared to pre-COVID levels.

Like-for-like sales had already begun to fall at the beginning of March when the public were warned to avoid pubs, restaurants and other venues in an attempt to prevent the spread of the new coronavirus. Shortly after, the country went into a full lockdown, with premises only able to open for takeaway and delivery.
