A recent study has named Chester as the second-best restaurant hotspot in the UK.
Research by CIA Landlord Insurance looked at all UK cities’ population figures and combined that with the number of restaurants to work out a score per capita. It also worked out the percentage of vegan restaurants, the average price, and the number of Michelin starred hospitality venues in each city.
Chester grabbed second place, with a score of six out of 10. Only being narrowly beaten by Wells in Somerset which achieved a score of 6.1.
A spokesperson for CIA Landlord Insurance said Chester scored highly due to it having the highest percentage of Michelin star restaurants, 2.2 per cent.
They said: “Our research found that the UK’s restaurant hotspot is not London, as many would expect, but the Somerset-based city of Wells. Wells scored perfect 10s for the number of restaurants per capita with 12 restaurants for every 1,000 people.”
The researchers also noted that Chester ranked highly for vegan options, with 44 per cent of the city’s hospitality sector catering for people with a plant-based diet.
Chester’s food culture fares well against some of Europe’s finest too, with Berlin scoring 5.5/10, Amsterdam (5.8/10), and Prague (5.9/10) all falling behind the Cheshire city.
“Chester was ranked as the second-best place in the UK, mostly due to having the highest percentage of Michelin star restaurants (2.2 per cent). Belfast, Norwich and Bath also landed in the top 10.”
According to the study, Chester, which has a population of 91,733, has 3.9 restaurants per 1,000 people and the average price per person is around £21.80.
