1 min read

The FINANCIAL — The Hertfordshire-based Oakman Inns and Restaurants enjoyed a good Christmas, with like-for-like sales up 30.45% for the four weeks ending January 2012, according to Caterer and Hotelkeeper.


Oakman, which is run by former Whitbread executive Peter Borg-Neal and has six sites – including its subsidiary, the British Larder – also had its best-ever trade for New Year's, Eve with takings of £68,500 across the six sites.

The newly-opened Blue Boar, Witney, opened five days into the trading period but still took just over £140,000 net of VAT in its first 23 days' trading.

Meanwhile, the Kings Arms, Berkhamsted, set a new company record by taking £63,400 net of VAT in a single week.
