French restaurants are half as popular among the British as they were 10 years ago, with just 4 per cent of diners visiting them as their first choice.
The study, Eating Out - Ten Year Trends, shows one in five consumers prefers a meal in a traditional English restaurant compared with 17 per cent who would rather go to an Indian and 16 per cent who would choose a Chinese.
The number of adults who visit a restaurant for dinner at least once a week has risen from 7 per cent a decade ago to 16 per cent. Men are almost twice as likely to eat out at least every one to two weeks. The most frequent out-of-home diners are younger adults.
The survey of 1,546 adults was done by Mintel, the UK consumer market analyst.Reuse content
