Martin said: “We’re all in it together and we want to recognise how every single member of the hospitality sector, whether they are employed by us or not, works tremendously hard.”
Little bit easier
He continued: “50% off on all food and drinks is what our staff receive and we’re thrilled to be able to match it on those strike days and make things that little bit easier for anyone working tirelessly to make London one of the most entertaining and hospitable cities in the world.”
Examples of savings include cheeseburger and fries at Greenwood, London Victoria: (£17) now £8.50; sharing nachos at Goldwood: (£15) now £7; Scottish monkfish with chorizo, green beans and sweetcorn purée at The Botanist, Sloane Square: (£26) now £13; and a pint of Moretti at Broadleaf: (£6.90) now £3.45.

To claim the discount, sector employees need to show their payslip to a member of the team at the ETM sites on strike days.
ETM is a collection of premium pubs, bars and restaurants across the capital.
In June 2021, ETM raised £4.3m to add firepower to its Maven Leisure group and announced it expected to open at least seven premium bars in London.
