              Room Service Group Plc ('Company' or 'the Company')

             Interim Results for the six months ended 30 June 2003



Chairman's Statement

I am pleased to present the results of the company for the six months ended 30th
June, 2003.

Following the members voluntary liquidation of the Company's operating
businesses, it has effectively not traded in the first half of the financial
year.  No turnover was generated and the loss on ordinary activities before and
after taxation of £35,000 equates to the administrative expenses for the period
under review.

The preliminary results for the year ended 31st December, 2002 have also been
released today and contain further details of the proposed restructuring of the
Company.
