Market Recovery Monitor

December 2nd, 2020

At least 50,000 licensed premises in England will not be able to trade even after the end of the national lockdown this week, the latest Market Recovery Monitor from CGA and AlixPartners reveals.

Research for the Monitor indicates that just 2,227 licensed premises—2% of the total—are located in Tier 1 areas of England, where restrictions are lightest. A total of 36,648 (39%) are in Tier 3 areas, where hospitality venues must close completely except for takeaways and deliveries. The rest—55,502, or 59%—are in the middle ground of Tier 2 and subject to strict limits including a ban on selling alcoholic drinks unless they are served alongside substantial meals.
