All Bar One owner warns on cost headache as hospitality sector fights to recover after lockdowns

Hospitality firms face a “major challenge” from higher energy and staff costs as they seek to rebuild following the pandemic, bar and pub operator Mitchells & Butlers has warned.

The company behind brands such as Harvester and All Bar One reported a second year in a row of annual losses though said in recent weeks sales had recovered to pre-pandemic levels.

It said demand seen since venues reopened should help it return to profitability but that higher costs – partly blamed on Brexit – would “inevitably” take their toll on financial performance.
