In terms of the park run things, what actually is "missing" compared to say 20 years ago.
Whats now Woodcutters used to be a stage, then a BBQ and now is a permanent restaurant so I suppose that was a conversion from fast food to plated meals, but it was nothing 20 years ago and a stage before that.
But McDonalds 3 locations are still Burger Kitchen. KFC is now Just Chicken and Pizza Hut serves pizza (but a buffet not takeout style).
The cafe on Cred St has become a shop. But we have a new cafe Little Explorers Lunch box in CBeebies (I don't think the farm had any catering.
Some outlets have been closed in the last few years but come and go, such as the outlets in Dark Forest (now run by Eastern Express I think) and some of the Mutiny Bay places come and go.
Also in the last 20 years the Ripsaw arcade became a cafe and then shut again and Nemesis Nosh changed from a bus, to a static outlet in the old Nemesis shop, to a fish and chip shop which burnt down and got changed to a cafe.
So I guess the Nemesis Nosh is a loss but we gained Rollercoaster Restaurant.
But the only place that seems to be a long-term closure is Towers Bar & Grill.
Overall I think it is speed of service that is the issue, coupled with the conversion of the Katanga Pizza/KFC from fast food to a buffet.
There are more places to get plated meals now (Pizza buffet, Woodcutters, Rollercoaster) but one or two fewer takeaway options.
Where is all the missing capacity?
The main thing I would add now is a replacement fish and chips place.
