All about you

You don’t care about prices – you care about quality, reputation & prestige! That’s not to say you wouldn’t sit down in a pub with a nice pint, it just means that the pub & pint need to the best that London can offer. You have a terribly busy lifestyle packed with entertaining clients & back-to-back business meetings, who has time to cook? Not you! That’s why you tend to eat our regularly & since you can expense most of it, why not try the expensive red or the best filet mignon the restaurant can offer? You deserve it after all!

All the consumer groups

Big spenders on food and drink whether on business or with the family. They think nothing of dining out, and trips always include a meal somewhere.

Business Class Seekers Close

Social media users to whom going out means drinking in the most popular places. However they tend to save it for the weekend with a more health-focused mindset during the week.

Mainstream Minded Close

Likely retired with time on their hands, they regularly seek out coffee shops during shopping or other trips, choosing familiar places as they can be wary of trying something new.

Comfortable Sceptics Close

Unfussy, but wary of trying somewhere new, they always look carefully at the price. However they will be strong advocates for places they do enjoy.

Cost Conscious Champions Close

They’ve got their favourite places, rarely push the boat out, and prefer to stay close to home.

Steadfast Sippers Close

Busy, but always make time for eating and drinking out. They’re first to visit the latest trendy place and tell you about it on social media

Trending Tastemakers Close

They’ve normally got the kids with them, so look out for a quality, quick bite while they’re out and about.​

Family Pit Stoppers Close

Empty-nesters, discerning and health-conscious, they frequently enjoy meals out with family and friends, invariably with a glass of wine.

Carefree Dolce Vita Close

Fairly comfortably off, they follow trends and regularly eat and drink out, often in pub restaurants with a glass of wine

Confident Conformists Close

Like to wine and dine out with friends in upmarket casual dining restaurants when the opportunity arises. Great service and good quality food and drink are incredibly important, which is why they generally opt to eat out in places that are tried and trusted or places that come highly recommended.
