£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.

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.
In 2012 the Centre for Economics and Business Research (CEBR), estimated that in a normal year each bank holiday made annual GDP about 0.16% lower, which in 2012 was £2.3 billion each.
We get new customers all the time. Sometimes they’ve had a bad experience with a former supplier, sometimes they’re recently free-of-tie and can explore new options for the first time ever.
Our latest installation took us back to the centre of London to supply a pub with digital gaming machines.
