      Speak Easy

      Dining out should be one of life’s great pleasures. A romantic meal or family birthday, a quick coffee with an old friend… spending quality time with people we care about is as important as the food and drink we’re served.

      That’s why over 90% of you say you would not return to a venue where the sheer level of noise sucks all the joy out of the experience.

      In summer 2016, we launched our Speak Easy campaign. We highlighted your views in our Speak Easy report and guide – and made recommendations to the hospitality industry.

      It's hitting a nerve with millions in the UK and receiving continuing coverage in the media.

      Now you can also get involved by raising awareness in your local restaurants, cafes and pubs using your free Speak Easy campaign pack.

      Speak Easy report

      A comprehensive report calling on restaurants, cafés and pubs to reduce background noise.

      Our Speak Easy campaign encourages restaurants, cafés and pubs to consider ways their customers can enjoy a good conversation without struggling over background noise.

      Join us in asking for background noise to be taken off the menu. There’s a variety of ways you can make your feedback to restaurants heard.

      We’re working with the hospitality industry, and its customers, to call for a more welcoming environment in restaurants, cafes and pubs.
