Industry: Food & Beverage
5pm.co.uk, a website dedicated to restaurant deals and
reservations, has made a fantastic start to the year after filling a
record number of seats in the restaurant sector.
During 5pm's January sale, which saw the company offer deals for two or three
courses in some of the country's top-rated restaurants for £12 a head, the company
saw an increase of almost 30% on the bookings made in a similar deal offered in
2009. The promotion saw 35,000 bookings at more than 80 Glasgow and Edinburgh
restaurants alone and the
success of the deal has seen it extended until the end of February.
Restaurant offers on the website are
available for eating establishments all over the United Kingdom.
Charles Shaw, the chairman of 5pm.co.uk, said: "The 5pm.co.uk offering is ideal in
this economic climate, as it allows 5pm users the luxury of still being able to eat
out at a fraction of the price. Consumers are ever more careful with their money and
are constantly looking for deals that won’t break the bank and 5pm is delighted to
be able to offer this."
The 5pm website is free to join and members are given access to all the latest deals
as well as a resource that allows them to book tables from a number of different
restaurants. Users are allowed to rate the places they've eaten and leave restaurant reviews, giving other members a fuller picture
of the place they're going to eat.
To book, users simply need to search for a restaurant - by name, location or type of
cuisine - and a few clicks later they could have a reservation in their name at any
one of the participating restaurants.
The most popular restaurant bookings in Edinburgh during the sale
were for Blonde, Café Andaluz, Calistoga Central and Channings while Glaswegians
opted for Two Fat Ladies at The Buttery, Soho, Stravaigin 2, Rogano and the Bothy.
5pm.co.uk offers dining deals at a vast range of restaurants and as well as
restaurant reservations, plus deals on events such as cookery courses and cocktail
classes plus tickets to some of the most exciting events in Scotland.
A full range of participating restaurants and terms and conditions can be found by
logging onto 5pm.co.uk.
