The popularity of the pub for social events and parties makes it essential to do an early booking. Consider that many other people may be looking to book the same pub and the same spot as you. Further procrastination and you may find yourself overtaken. This might be difficult to take and may even dampen the mood for your function.
To forestall the disappointments that come with the dreaded ‘we are fully booked’ response, this blog seeks to provide reasons why the early booking call should not be delayed.
Possibility of Squeezing a Great Offer
When made early, bookings come with the possibility of extracting a once in a lifetime offer from the pub management. The thinking is that a bird in hand is worth nine in the bush. It would be foolhardy for a pub manager to turn down a ready deal knowing too well that he might not get any other.
Additionally, booking gives the management a leeway to customize their services to suit your guests’ needs. For instance, the menu may be deficient in some areas but with booking, the right adjustments can be made to your satisfaction.
Opportunity to Conduct Test Runs
Early booking enables one to sample some services on the menu before the d-day. In doing so, you can explore and suggest areas of improvement to ensure that your mates do not banish you for being so lousy in throwing down a great party. There is also absolutely no harm in inviting your trusted friend to review the pub just to be sure that the spot is pitch-perfect.
Luxury of Partial Payment
With bookings, you do not need to break the bank paying for the entire function during reservation. With proper arrangements and agreement, the pub management may allow you to make a fraction of the payment with the remainder of the amount payable on the function day.
