‘We have been a member of the Restaurant Association for several years for our three establishments which have 50+ staff. We have used the Association countless times for advice and assistance in dealing with staff issues – also around the ever-changing nuances within hospitality legislation. Needless to say, the RA were so supportive and reassuring throughout Lockdown and since – advocating on our behalf during a time when our industry has been so adversely affected.  I wholeheartedly recommend the RA.’
