Earlier this yr, Express.co.uk visited the city of Porthleven the place some companies revealed they have been in survival mode due to a downturn in tourism that has seen some vacation houses sit empty.

Speaking to the Express, head chef at Kota Ross Sloan stated: “We’re ticking over – but we are having to streamline things and have less staff on. And if we’re busy, we just have to deal with it.

“The thing is, we’re very cheap for the quality of our food. Where else can you get a taster menu as good as ours for 75 quid? Other places are charging the same prices, but they’re not offering the same quality. And a lot of businesses – those that rely on tourists – are now in survival mode.”

As to why tourism has dropped off, Mr Sloan stated: “Landlords and second home owners are being greedy. They’ve put the prices up so much that if people come on holiday they can’t afford to eat out.

“But, you know what, if those landlords have mortgages, their costs have gone up too. And restaurants have had to put their prices up – because their costs have gone up.

“Everyone’s costs have gone up. Rates have up. Electricity has gone up. Everything has gone up. People can go abroad for far less than a holiday here. People want to get away from this country – and this government.”
