The Experts in Restaurant Websites

Having created websites for restaurants across the UK ranging from fine-dining Michelin starred destinations to rural gastropubs and even one of the UK’s most popular fish and chip shops, Kit and Caboodle Media are experts in designing and building restaurant websites.

Our dynamic team boasts a vast amount of expertise in the hospitality industry - having developed multiple restaurant websites, a market-leading online gift voucher sales & management system, as well as one of the UK’s leading online entertainment guides for the past 18+ years. We believe that business owners should treat their restaurant website like their most important front-of-house staff member; does your website give the right impression of your restaurant and offer the same level of service? You’d want to make sure your customers are looked after when they’re in your restaurant, that they’ll leave happy and share their experience with their friends, so what about when they visit your restaurant website?
Does your website give the right impression of your restaurant and offer the same level of service?

More than ever (potential) customers are heading to their mobile phone, tablet or computer to research suitable restaurants nearby, check out menus and browse image galleries before going on to (hopefully, if the website has done its job) make a reservation at your restaurant. In-fact more and more customers are researching restaurant websites via their mobile phone (recent research by Google cited 72% of online searches for restaurants in 2019 are on mobile devices), making a mobile-friendly website HUGELY important for all restaurant business owners.

If you’re in need of a website that works perfectly across all platforms and devices, desktop and mobile alike, just like the ‘fluid’ websites we design here at Kit and Caboodle, why not get a quote from us?

There are a number of contributing factors that make a great restaurant website - and one simple way that restaurants can really sell themselves to potential customers via their restaurant website is through high quality photography and design. Great photos effectively demonstrate how your restaurant looks and how appetising the food is. A simple, easy to use website design will effectively showcase your restaurant and overall brand identity and also allow customers to easily navigate to any area of the website that maybe of interest (location and directions, reviews, menus, dietary information etc).
Every additional second a page takes to load results in a 7% reduction in conversions to bookings

Your restaurant website can’t be all style over substance though - it’s important that your restaurant website allows customers to find the necessary information as quickly and easily as possible and that the site loads quickly. Did you know that Google rankings are affected by your website speed? A slow website can result in a 30% increase in bounce-rates (customers leaving your website before the content has loaded) and a recent study by KISSMetrics found every additional second a page takes to load resulted in a 7% reduction in conversions to bookings.
