Whether you’re ready for it or not, Christmas is just around the corner! At this festive time of year, there’s nothing more appealing than a cosy pub. Warm lights and friendly chatter entices customers in from the miserable weather outside. But how can you make sure that your pub is the place to be this Christmas?
NSM’s latest digital jukebox system, Thunder, is now available from TVC Leisure. Music is of course an important part of a venue’s atmosphere, as music always sets the scene as soon as you walk in. Sometimes it can tricky to play the right music to your customers at the right time.
We’ve been in Andover this week, helping a new tenant get their pub back on its feet.
£5.3 billion a year is spent on spirits in bars in the UK. With 78% of bars selling cocktails, make sure you’re not missing out on this valuable revenue stream.
This week’s installation takes us to the historical city of Salisbury, in Wiltshire. Having previously been run as more of a restaurant, this pub had recently undertaken an extensive refurbishment to focus more on wet-led sales.
Our latest job was an installation in Feltham, just outside central London. This local pub was previously tied on their gaming machines and had to use a nominated supplier. Because of this they were not making the returns they wanted from their machines and experienced bad service.
Halloween isn’t just about trick or treating. It’s also the time of year to get creative with Halloween beers and mix up a brew that embodies the spooky elements of the season!
This week’s installation takes us just up the road to the village of Lower Kingswood, in Surrey.
Pub quizzes are great for pubs. They can liven up otherwise quiet nights, give you a boost in regular revenue and turn your pub into a place where the community can come together.

Speak to any economist and they will tell you two things about bank holidays: Bank holidays have a negative impact on GDP; and don’t ask them to prove it.
Given the vast number of factors that go into economics, including weather, politics and even the general mood of the country, calculating the real life cost of a bank holiday is extremely difficult, if not impossible.
