Hospitality sector

A hospitality business can be defined as a business whose main function is to provide a venue for the consumption and sale of food and drink.  This will include:

  • Businesses offering in-person food and drink services to the general public.
  • Businesses that provide food and/or drink to be consumed on the premises, including outdoors.

For the purposes of this scheme, a hospitality business excludes food kiosks and businesses whose main service (generating 50% or more of income) is a takeaway. 

Note: Businesses that normally provide in-person services but have adapted to offer takeaway only services, during periods of restrictions, will remain eligible for a grant.

Examples of businesses that fall within the definition of hospitality, include:

  • cafes
  • food courts
  • public houses / pub restaurants
  • restaurants
  • roadside restaurants
  • wine bars
