Valentine's Hints & Tips

How to marketing your pub for valentines day
Go the extra mile for your customers this Valentine's Day

Following on from Christmas, Valentine's Day is the most romantic day (& one of the most profitable days) of the year - this presents a perfect opportunity for licensees to drive loved up couples (or first daters) into your pub. Valentine's Day is a great opportunity for savvy operators to go over the top for customers who are willing to spread extra in the name of romance [1]. Valentine's Day is a great time to entice new customers to your pub… wine them, dine them, give them a great first-impression & let them fall in love with your pub as a long term customer. 


All you need is food

For a Valentine's Day menu, it's often best to kick off with classic starters that people recognise, but dressed up to show the quality of ingredients is fitting for the occasion [2]. A Valentine's Day menu doesn't need to be difficult to create. Make the focus on decadent foods and those perceived as 'naughty', like melt in the middle chocolate fondant or aphrodisiacs [7]. Sharing dishes make a great addition to a Valentine's Day menu, as they provide the intimacy couples will be looking for and a source of entertainment during the meal [6].

Or, if you want to pull out all the stops, maybe book a soft & atmospheric band to play in the background [16].
