Advice on making a survey


Novice Member
I've seen a few students post surveys they've made for course work/dissertations so I thought I'd ask you guys for some advice on making my own survey.

I work in a pub and I'm currently being trained up to take on more responsibility. As such, I feel I need to be able to contribute more to the way the business is run. To do this I'd like some feedback from pub goers and people who work/have worked in the industry at any level.

So far, my survey will look something like this:





Select one of the following that best describes you:

Pub customer
Pub customer with former pub experience
Member of bar staff
Manager of a pub/Landlord of a pub
None of the above

If you selected none of the above could you elaborate on why you're not particularly interested in pubs:

How often do you visit a pub:

Once a month
Once a week
Several times a week

I usually visit the pub...:

After work
On Friday night
On Saturday night
When there's a major sporting event scheduled to be shown
Whenever I feel like it
I don't visit pubs

When I enter a pub I...:

Look for somewhere to sit
Head straight to the bar then look for somewhere to sit
Head straight to the bar and stay there
I don't visit pubs

Select the following that best applies to you:

I enjoy the experience of going to the bar and interacting with the staff
I'd prefer to be served at my table
I don't care/don't attend pubs

When dealing with bar staff I prefer them to be:

Friendly and chatty
Quick and efficient
Knowledgeable about the products they're selling
I don't visit pubs

What would you like to see more of/less of in pubs:

That's all I've thought of so far. What do you think?

Are there any other questions you would like to see on a survey of this nature?

THe I usually visit the pub question could do with some answers such as meeting friends/special occasions/celebrations

One other thing - where are you intending to publish this questionaire, as it seems strange to have a pub questionaire (if it is going to be given out at the pub) that asks why you don't visit pubs etc
