This episode was recorded just as it was revealed that the Welsh hospitality sector was facing up to 30,000 job losses, with half of these having already taken place. A desperate situation, exacerbated by the fact that there was still no update on indoor opening for restaurants, bars and pubs Wales. In this episode, we spoke 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 damage to the hospitality industry in Wales that has already been done.
