    Episode 9 - Welsh Hospitality in Crisis

    This week, it was revealed that the Welsh hospitality sector is facing up to 30,000 job losses, with half of these having already taken place. It's a desperate situation, exacerbated by the fact that there is still no update on indoor opening for restaurants, bars and pubs Wales. In this episode, we speak to restauranteur, food writer and broadcaster Simon Wright about the impact of the Coronavirus crisis, the formation of the Welsh Independent Restaurant Collective, and the catastrophic collapse that is already happening, right now.
