Sirloins, Fish, Tomatoes, Cream, Bread... Everything is shooting up!Not a day goes by without a new increase in the price of our supplies.
Judging from the continuing rise in the price of diesel I have a feeling that this worrying state of affairs may well last long enough to hurt many people.
Business dictates that we should follow suit and pass on the increases. I usually leave it till we are struggling to reach our margins before augmenting our prices, and even then, very slightly as to not end up with disaffected regulars.
Over the twenty three years we have been in the restaurant business, there have been numerous times when we have had to grit our teeth and hope to ride the storm. I just hope that this time our confidence is not strained.
