More than half of the UK adult population went out to eat or drink following the easing of lockdown restrictions in July, new data has shown.

According to data from Lumina Intelligence, the proportion of UK consumers who had an eating out occasion increased to a peak of 52.2% over the 12 weeks to the 11 July, with frequency of visit and average spend also increasing.

Lumina’s Eating & Drinking Out Panel (EDOP) data indicates that total average spend rose by 3.9% in the latest 12 weeks, as higher spend channels including restaurants and pubs and bars grew share. Combined, restaurants, pubs and bars grew share by 10.5 percentage points to account for 24% of total channel share.

By contrast, delivery declined in share by 9.8 percentage points and click & collect declined by 5.7 percentage points as more consumers ate and drank out of home. Increased consumer confidence and sporting events including the Euros football tournament also helped bolster out of home eating and drinking occasions.

Fewer delivery occasions saw quick service restaurants lose a significant proportion of share of occasions. Lunch occasions, however, grew in importance and accounted for over 1 in 4 eating out occasions, as consumers are no longer required to eat at home or outdoors.
