Pub salad sales are suffering with average prices higher than that of pies and burgers, according to CGA Strategy.

The Trading Index and Food Price Monitor programmes research found that consumption of salads remains lower than burgers, roasts and scampi. Burgers outsell salads at a rate of 4.5 to one in pubs with an average of 26 salads sold per week at an average price of £7.63.

There is a difference in salad consumption regionally with northerners more likely to shirk salads than southerners.

"Although we are seeing more and more quality-seeking diners in pubs, the current price positioning of salads could be having a negative impact on sales, as customers still seek value from their visits" said CGA Strategy’s Tom Lynch.

"With the price of salads so significantly higher than the majority of other main meal items, it does seem like you have to spend pounds to shed pounds in our pubs."
