Introducing The Reservation Matchmaker “Ambl,” remarkably connecting Customers & Venues!

The ever-evolving dining behaviour is shifting when it comes to reserving a table, with spontaneity at the forefront, a revolutionary new app has generated the ‘Uber of restaurants’. 

After cinching £2.3m funding back in May 2022, Ambl, the revolutionary new app connects customers with the best venues and gives hospitality venues a tool to fill empty spaces in the tap of a button, has launched in London.  

Founded by Essex entrepreneurs and best friends, Aaron Solomon and Jed Hackling, the two progressively found it harder to book last-minute reservations. The light bulb moment struck when Aaron was set the task of booking a table for a large group. Despite searching booking apps, websites and making calls, no suitable options were found. That’s when he had a breakthrough idea: why not broadcast his need to nearby restaurants and allow them to see that a large group needed a table? From that moment on, Ambl was born. 

The hard work began when knocking on restaurant doors led to support from over 150 venues. Consistently learning on the job, Aaron and Jed raised £2.3m, and Ambl was launched.  

Not only providing the perfect spot for any occasion, whether it’s a last-minute booking, a corporate event, or a night out with friends, the app’s real-time availability feature makes it easy for venues to fill last-minute cancellations and no-shows, providing a seamless experience for both customers and businesses. 

Shocking statistics found that no-shows cause a fifth of restaurant owners to ‘consider closing for good’*.  Founder Aaron comments “Ambl venues don’t require a deposit, allowing customers to go where they want, when they want. With this in mind, we’ve set a three-strike policy, meaning if customers no-show or cancel three times they will no longer have access to the app, double booking also isn’t available.”  

“We want to encourage a better behaviour from our customers and provide our venues with confidence that an Ambl booking will turn up and fill business which could potentially be lost from no-shows”.  

Spontaneous bookings can be made at huge venue names across London including Guacho, Marcus Belgravia, Barrica, Lucy Wong, Gura Gura, Sican, Four Thieves and so many more. Download the app for free via the App Store here and Google Play here.
