The latest figures from the Coffer Peach Business Tracker have revealed that like for like sales were up 4.4% in April compared to April 2016 across the UK’s managed pub and restaurant groups.

The tracker found an increase in April compared to last month when like for sales were down 0.5%.

Peter Martin, vice president of CGA Peach, said: “Although trading over the Easter weekend was not as good this year compared to the four-day holiday in 2016, down 3.8% on a like-for-like basis, the boost that the break provides to the sector can still be seen in April’s trading growth. Taken together the two months’ numbers show there is still underlying growth in the sector, and especially among pub groups.”

Managed pub operators saw a 6.1% increase in collective like-for-like sales in April, compared to a 1.5% increase for restaurant chains. Total sales in pubs were up 9% and 4.8% in restaurants.
