Pubs are gaining ground on restaurants in terms of their share of the eating-out market and satisfaction scores.

The latest research from Allegra Foodservice shows pubs are attracting more custom across all meal times.

Figures for September and October 20104 show pubs attracting 29.2% of the eating market for dinner – up on 25.4% in the same period last year. For lunch, pubs have 16.3% of the market up from 15.7% in 2013. For breakfast the figure stands at 7.4%, up 1.2 percentage points year-on-year.

Simon Stenning, Allegra’s strategy director, said pubs were also reporting positive scores on satisfaction levels.

“Pubs can deliver value really well. Consumer expectations are lower and their satisfaction rankings are higher when it comes to pubs.

“Pubs really are delivering what consumers want and over-delivering on their expectations.”
