Not Much Light at the End of the Tunnel for Pubs & Bars
Eldridge Pope which runs the Toad brand of bars which has a branch in East Street has announced profits have declined by almost half over the past year.
Like for like turnover for the company's 33 high street bars declined by 16% in the second half. Consequently Eldridge has put 5 bars up for sale and introduced new managers in many others. The hard times on the high street for this sector are a long way from over.
