Responsibility for the hospitality sector is split between the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and the Department for Culture, Media and Sports (DCMS). BEIS is responsible for cafés, restaurants, pubs, bars and nightclubs, while DCMS is responsible for hospitality accommodation, given the close links to tourism.

Within BEIS, we have a dedicated hospitality sector support team, and hospitality has been recognised formally as a key part of my ministerial portfolio.
