Restaurant group D&D London enjoyed record trading in December 2016, with like-for-like UK sales up 7%.
The company said that overall revenues for the period were up 20% on the prior year and hailed strong performances from German Gymnasium (pictured), 100 Wardour Street, Bluebird and Sartoria, which saw like-for-like sales rise 30% on the prior year.
Meanwhile, South Place hotel was up 12%, Quaglino’s also up 12% and in Leeds Crafthouse and Angelica saw a sales increase of 8%.
Like-for-likes climbed 14% for New Year’s Eve across the group.
Des Gunewardena, chairman and CEO of D&D London, said: “We were very happy with December trading after what has been a topsy-turvy year. We were especially pleased to see our new and recently relaunched restaurants doing so well. Despite an excellent end to 2016 we have no illusions about how challenging 2017 is likely to be, with continuing worries about Brexit and cost inflation on all fronts. However our restaurants are performing well. And the coming year is planned to be one of our busiest ever in terms of new openings.”
