Supplementary notes

* Figures include Premier Inn/Whitbread restaurant brands (e.g. Beefeater, Brewers Fayre, Bar and Block Steakhouse and Table Table). Note most of Whitbread's restaurant brands operate alongside Premier Inn hotels, therefore this segment of the business is reported together.
Includes all employed on a full-time equivalent basis.
** Figures for 2016/17 and 2017/18 were restated in the 2018 report, presenting higher figures (2016/17 previously reported as 14,768). The reason for this is not provided. Earlier figures are taken from previous reports - caution is advised when comparing pre and post 2016/17 data.
