The present Theresa May government is actually getting a really easy ride from the media; consumer confidence and spending power is quite clearly at a very poor place, yet there's no criticism of the government for the fact that after 7 years of Tory rule with austerity and making the rich richer, the average person is squeezed flat with no sign of improvement. All the casual dining companies are victims of that.

I think its the brexit effect. The consumer has no money and/or is afraid to spend. Quite the opposite in european countries.

We knew these results were not going to be good and they've certainly lived up to managements guidance in the last trading update. I estimate that LFL sales are down by about 8-9% over the trailing 12 month period. We know the sector is difficult, but this decline is far in excess of what the sector has reported as a whole. The £9.5m site impairment based on £34m worth of property plant and equipment reported in the last interim is spectacular for all the wrong reasons. When you consider these write-off's and the weak balance sheet, it's not surprising that site openings have been stopped for the rest of 2017 and 2018. As an unfortunate holder, I do see a few reasons to be optimistic. The growth story is well and truly dead (I never really cared for it in the first place). I think that this will actually help in the recovery of TAST as management are going to be fully concentrated in turning around their existing base and generating cash rather than looking at developing new sites. Secondly, as awful as these numbers were, the company is still cash generative (before new build capex). If some of the worse locations can be shuttered and we even get marginal improvement in the existing locations, I don't think a return to an 8% margin is out of the realms of possibility in the next 2 years.

I wonder what the bank loan covenants are. No new openings in 2018. That is not why the bank gave them a £12m facility.

Hi yes, still have about 10% of my portfolio in property companies. Think the restaurant sector is one to avoid for now. Most of the chains seem to be struggling with lower consumer confidence and higher costs. Not a pleasant combination!

Giving away a pizza or pasta costs very little. If the promotion results in bums on seats and everyone buys a drink and a coffee it will result in increased gross profit admittedly at a lower %.one earns nothing on an empty table. it is less costly to the company than giving a % off the total bill. It will appear to be a good deal to the public and less expensive to the company than buy a main course and get a second one free (the cheaper of the 2 ) There is a lot of competition out there and promotional activity is a necessity.

It was reasonably busy but was almost empty when we left at 9.15. Even with the discount with a couple of beers raspberry lemonade for the missus and starters it was still £43 for the two of us. Prezzos across the road looked to be a bit busier and certainly had more customers as we walked past on the way to the car. I always enjoy the experience and do actually want them to succeed. As I have said before any sign of a turnaround and this time I will be in.

I've been to Wildwood Crawley and Kingston 3 times Kingston is always pretty busy but they do have plenty of capacity. I had Starter, Main and a Drink for a £10 (Again Mon-Thu) very good food and service on every occasion. Personally I think the mix is good on the menu. There is something for everyone! Faced with a choice in our family of six of always upsetting one or two members of our family because they wanted x,y or z (one wants to go to Wagamamas the other to Pizza Express and the other to Frankie and Bennies.. Wildwood solves this dilemma....

This will be low 20s before the end of the year. There is absolutely zero reason to hold them. Interims are likely to show a loss in excess of £3m £8m for the full year. Compare the like for likes and see just how rapidly this has gone into reverse.

Yes, difficult sector. Tried a Wildwood in Worcester a few weeks back. Pretty good. Agree with the posts above though in that it's not distinctive enough as a roll out concept. Bit of everything. Doesn't look a winner to me.

Must be throwing away half the food, if the Ilkley Wildwood any guide, rarely do I see any volume there, always appears empty even on a weekend!

Just looking at the menu on their website, wildwoodrestaurants.co.uk Looks like they are doing too many things, and I wonder if they can run into problems with food wastage. Five sections under Mains: grill (burgers/ribs/chicken/fish/steak): 11 choices; pasta: 10 choices; pizza: 10 choices; risotto: 4 choices; salads: 5 choices; and 5 rather unimaginative-sounding side dishes. Plus 12 things listed under starters, 10 desserts, 6 Specials and a Kids menu. It's possibly just too many things, I suspect it introduces a higher level of operational gearing, because you need to be seating a LOT of people to make a menu that complex work, plus you need more kitchen space and have a higher kitchen fit-out cost. Doesn't matter in the good times, but as they say, anyone can make money in a rising market; it's what you do on the 'down' cycle that matters.

Remember they only just revised down the figures in March and now it's got worse again. http://www.proactiveinvestors.co.uk/companies/market_reports/182188/bad-taste-as-tasty-shares-drop-after-restaurant-operator-warns-on-first-half-trading-182188.html
