How to activate bookable preset menus on TheFork for SevenRooms restaurants
If your restaurant is using SevenRooms, you can also make your venue bookable on TheFork, Australia’s leading restaurant discovery platform.
To activate TheFork channel, you’ll need to add TheFork to the audience section in each access rule. All information automatically passes from SevenRooms to our website, including booking policies, area selection, credit card/prepayment information, etc. You can also have set menus and special events or oﬀers available to TheFork diners.
If you’d like to have set menus and oﬀers available to TheFork diners, you can create these in your SevenRooms system.
Go to the Marketing tab and select the Oﬀers section.
To create an oﬀer, click on the Create New button in the top right corner then follow the 5 steps below.
What is the name of your Oﬀer? Add the name of your oﬀer in the box.
What type of Oﬀer do you want to create? Select TheFork Restaurant Bookable Preset Menu

NB: The Price and Default party size fields must only have a number; any other characters will result in an error when publishing.

Here you’ll see a summary of the menu you have set up, to make any changes prior to publishing, click the Back button.
Once you are happy with the menu, click on Publish button in the bottom right corner.

2. Select the tab 4. Public Description and click on the --select-- field underneath Link to Oﬀer.
3. Choose the TheFork Restaurant Bookable Preset Menu from the drop down you created in Oﬀers.
