Resetting on-trade health


WELLBEING was the order of the day at a Glasgow pub this month, when it hosted the first in a series of workshops aimed at improving mental and physical health.

The Gate’s Phil Robins launched Reset on November 4, with a free programme that included cooking classes. Open to all, Reset aims to create “an environment where trade and the public can have a great time”.

In addition to the workshops, the venue will run Mondays as a ‘dry bar’, offering a new menu every week featuring non-alcoholic beers, Scottish soft drinks and cocktails made with non-alcoholic spirit Seedlip.

“This is not an anti-booze campaign, what we are trying to highlight is that you can still have a great time without alcohol,” said Robins.

“The Gate will also be opened during the day for trade to utilise as a meeting space. The menu at Reset changes every week with Seedlip cocktails, raw sodas and a large selection of non-alcoholic beers.

“On the first Monday of every month, we will also be hosting a more in-depth session through-out the day into wellbeing in our industry. We want to make those working within the industry more aware of small changes which can be made to increase energy levels and productivity, reduce injury and sickness and provide building blocks for better sleep and diet.”
