Prices in restaurant­s and pubs already rising


Three quarters of pubs and restaurant­s have already increased their prices because of the energy crisis and falling demand, new research has found.

An industry survey of 150 companies operating 7,500 venues has found that one in five expects to go bust unless the Government steps in to cap energy bills today, while three in five say they are already not profitable.

Pubs and restaurant­s now say that energy makes up a fifth of their expenditur­e.
