The restaurants and hotel category analysed by the ONS includes a £17.30 spend on restaurant and café meals, a £7.50 spend on alcoholic drinks consumed out of home, and a £4.70 spend on takeaway meals for the year ending March 2016.
However, the figures vary throughout the UK when looking at three years of combined data. In London, the average weekly amount was £21.50, compared to £14.20 in Wales.
