From Morning Report, 6:46 am on 8 December 2023

Restaurants are reporting worse than normal Christmas booking numbers for this time of year.

A recent survey of 194 businesses conducted by the Restaurant Association shows 65 percent of respondents are not tracking along as normal.

General Manager Nicola Waldren says Christmas is always challenging for customers to afford dining out, but this year is different.

Waldren spoke to Corin Dann.
