5pm.co.uk reveals huge growth in restaurant bookings during January sale
[UKPRwire, Tue Feb 16 2010] 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.
