“We were sceptical about trying a national scheme such as sugarvine due to our reasonably remote location, we thought Sugarvine was more of a 'city thing' and were worried that we may not get enough traffic in return for our investment - we we're wrong! We've had over 5000 views of our listing in the 12 months we've been with Sugarvine, so we're definitely getting ourselves out there, and estimate we've had more than 10 new customers a month as a result of Sugarvine!! We'll definitely be renewing!”

Europa Restaurant, Bristol

Europa Restaurant, Bristol

“Europa Italian Restaurant is a small 86 seater restaurant in the heart of Bristol. It is a family run restaurant which has been trading for the past 22 years.

A couple of years ago we were really struggling – times where tuff to say the least. Our 1st floor restaurant which holds 32 people was never used only on rare occasions. Restaurants around us had succumbed to the “discount voucher” syndrome – as a result they have now gone!

Then one day a rep appeared at my door from “Sugarvine” offering us a package that would give me a monthly feature in their newsletter plus a permanent listing on their website. We thought long and hard and decided to give it a go, none of the other more traditional forms of advertising where working for us so what did we have to lose. This was a company that specialised in restaurants, they even offered to spread the payments over a given period for us which helped.

The editorial they did looked good, very professional and the people at sugarvinedesign.com where very friendly and approachable giving us great ideas in order to help us write our editorials. After a couple of months working with the guys at Sugarvinedesign a real solid relationship grew together with trust. Let’s face it me and my husband are nearly 50 and using the internet to market our restaurant seemed very daunting.

That is where the Client Liaison team came to our rescue – we were having no end of trouble trying to sort out our current webpage provider with no success, then they took over the fight for us and after a couple of months everything was sorted. Europa was now in a position to engage Sugarvinedesign to build and host a whole new website for us. What a relief!!!! without them we would never have been free from the previous provider.

Since then Europa has never looked back we have grown month by month, we use our 1st floor restaurant at least once a week and now specialise in Hen and Stag Parties. None of this would have been possible without the help of Sugarvinedesign and their marvellous creative team; who are not only very skilled in what they do but easy to communicate with and nothing is too much trouble. They don’t just design they give you total backup anytime you need it at no extra cost. All of the team are only too happy to work with you advising and helping you to develop what they have designed for your restaurant in order to maximise the design tool’s potential.

In the past year Sugarvinedesign.com has designed my webpage, developed a webpage application for mobile users, two facebook pages, newsletter template plus management systems giving me total control as and when I need it. In short Sugarvinedesign has brought Europa into the 21st century and by-golly have we seen the results. Since Sugarvinedesign.com launched our new website not only has our bookings increased, but our exposure in the market place has exceeded my wildest dreams. The money invested with Sugarvinedesign has certainly paid dividends for Europa.

Thanks to Sugarvinedesign we are now in profit and laying down firm foundations for the future, with their help and vision.

THANK YOU SUGARVINE IT’S BEEN GREAT WORKING WITH YOU GUYS! ”

“I have been using the sugarvine newsletter system for nearly 2 years and find it a perfect tool for getting information to my customers. As the email addresses are either collected through our newsletter 'sign up' or given to us directly, I know the people are specifically interested in my restaurant and open to new offers and promotions. We regularly keep our customers informed of upcoming special meals, celebrations such as Christmas and new year and events such as cookery demonstrations and wine tastings. The response is always good. The newsletter system is very easy to navigate with a minimum of computer knowledge. ”

“Since Sugarvine set up our website three years ago we have been impressed with their reliability and the quality of their service. All Sugarvine staff have impressed us enormously with their level of diligence and thoroughness in developing and maintaining our site as well as managing our email. They are willing to listen and do the work we want done. Many other developers will persist in trying to sell us services and facilities we do not require or want.

Sugarvine are quick to respond to customer requests and have maintained an excellent level of service. They are always there when we need them with prompt service and a smile. Our relationship with Sugarvine started and has remained professional, reliable and friendly. I would have no hesitation in recommending their service.”

" Service has been excellent and I have recommended Sugarvine to other restaurants. "

" Since we got our website through sugarvine, I've seen a marked increase on bookings for December. When people ring up asking about menus I refer them straight to the website and often they ring back same day to make the reservation. It's faster than fax or the post and gives us a competitive advantage. "

" I get loads of bookings from Sugarvine, I always ask when people ring up. I particularly get big parties. Last week someone rang to book a table of 35. I have been offered to go on websites much cheaper than yours but I know yours works and tell them so! "

" Sugarvine provides most of the hits to our website. "

" In this day and age, it's criminal for a restaurant not to have a website. "
