The migration from the old site to the new site went well ... in fact, better and quicker than expected. We increased the load to cope with increased traffic volume predictions and loading times but the user experiences were not where we would want them, or as responsive as we expected. Providing you with a new site is all about improving your experience of The Staff Canteen and, although the functionality was all there and working really well, it just wasn't quite quick enough to give you the user experience we know that it's capable of. So, rather than start off on the wrong foot, we thought it would be best to drop back to the old site - just for a little while - so that we can iron out those performance issues now rather than disappointing you, the user. This was not a decision that we took lightly, but a decision that put you - our members, sponsors and advertisers - to the front of our thinking. We're really excited to bring you the new site, new features and improved user experience, but please bear with us just a little longer. The technical monkeys are working on it night and day. Thanks for your understanding.

In these challenging times…

…the hospitality landscape has dramatically changed in the last two months, and with that our advertising revenues have all but expired, significantly impacting our business. Despite having to furlough a large portion of our staff, we are still delivering the valuable content and honest information, which hundreds of thousands of you come to The Staff Canteen for. We believe we have a critical role to play in informing and supporting our audience. We need your support right now, more than ever, to keep The Staff Canteen active. Without your financial contributions this would not be possible.

Over the last 12 years, The Staff Canteen has built what has become the go-to platform for chefs and hospitality professionals. As members and visitors, your daily support has made The Staff Canteen what it is today. Our features and videos from the world’s biggest name chefs, are something we are proud of. We have over 500,000 followers across Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube and other social channels, each connecting with chefs across the world. Our editorial and social media team are creating and delivering engaging content every day, to support you and the whole sector.

Your financial support means we remain independent and open to all. We were launched by a chef and remain the voice of chefs and other hospitality professionals.

We need your support to keep delivering the products and content that you love, giving you the platform to share opinions and inspiration. Every contribution whether big or small, means so much.
