Professional Answering Service That Restaurants Can Trust

As a restaurant owner or manager how do your calls get answered when your restaurant is closed? Are you missing out on potential bookings by not constantly being by your phone?

Here at best reception we understand how important it is to have your calls answered, not only at your busiest time of day when phone calls may get missed, but also out of your lunch and evening service times, when your restaurant may not even be open!

Whether you would like your virtual receptionist to simply take a message when you are unavailable, or use an online diary system to take bookings for your restaurant, we can help ensure that you never miss out on potential custom!

What’s more, we can also advise your caller on any queries they may have, from menu advice, takeaway orders, and opening times, right through to directions and parking information!
