DO YOU STILL GO OUT TO EAT IN PUBS AND RESTAURANTS?

“I still go to restaurants and pubs as much as I used to, in fact probably more, as I want to take my mind off everything that is going on economically. People are more picky about where they go and pubs are considered cheaper.”

“Of course I eat at restaurants and pubs as much as I used to. In my experience people drink more and smoke more in recessions. More people are going out as they need something to do with their time with so many unemployed.”

TOM KIELY

“I go to pubs and restaurants about the same amount as I used to. I’m using a Taste card at the moment and that gives you 50 per cent off so I use that for when I go out. But I still dine out as often as I have in the past, despite the recession.”
