Revolution Bars boss urges Boris to speed up exit from lockdown as he toasts Monday’s ‘carnival’ atmosphere
Relief: Revolution Bars boss Rob Pitcher
The boss of Revolution Bars has urged a swifter exit from lockdown after hospitality’s reopening.
Rob Pitcher, 46, hailed Monday’s success as customers braved the cold to enjoy their first pint back after lockdown. Revolution posted a 73 per cent fall in sales in the six months to December 26, and a £14.7million loss.
Pitcher said: ‘The mood was almost carnival-like. Guests were just delighted to be back out.
‘We are ahead of vaccination progress on every measure the roadmap was built on, so it seems extraordinary that we wouldn’t move the dates forward.’
Indoor hospitality is set to open from May 17, with all restrictions expected to be removed on June 21.
