It’s difficult to find time to eat lunch, let alone read a book, but Sitwell’s Bespoke is a great read and worth your time. She captures how today’s diners have a thirst for a bespoke approach to hospitality and that if not received, you will lose a potential regular guest forever. There is no ‘magic formula’ for success but in these pages Sitwell provides an armoury of tools to create distinctive and differentiated service.

It might cost a little more, but happy guests spend more and return!
