The team at NetVoucherCodes.co.uk have crunched the numbers to reveal the average cost of seven takeaway favourites across the United Kingdom including pizza, fish and chips, and fried chicken.
Below you will see the table of how much a portion of fish & chips is across the UK, albeit with regional variances in portion size. Hull came out the cheapest for fish and chips with London not surprisingly the most expensive.
The team used delivery apps to look at the prices of best rated takeaways for each cuisine in 40 cities across England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.
The data reveals that across all food types, the most expensive places to order takeout are London (av. £9.65 per meal), Cambridge (av. £9 per meal) and Aberdeen (av. £8.77 per meal).
At the other end of the scale, Wolverhampton offers the best value takeaways across the board, with the average meal costing just shy of £6 (£5.94). Hull comes close second (av. £6.17 per meal) and Preston third (av. £6.25 per meal).
Leeds is the cheapest place in the UK to order a 12 inch pepperoni pizza (av. £6.67). Preston and Wolverhampton also offer great value, with hungry locals being able to order the same meal for less than £7.
Fans of a Chinese should consider a trip to Sheffield or Norwich to bag the cheapest Chicken Chow Mein, with average prices sitting at around £5.30.
Aside from Cambridge, where a Chicken Chow Mein costs a whopping £8.23, Birmingham and Brighton are the second most expensive places, with residents having to splash out up to £7.75 per dish. To compare, the national average is £6.43.
Hull is the second cheapest place overall to grab a takeaway, with each meal costing an average of £6.17. It is also home to the nation’s cheapest fish and chips, where a portion costs just £5.12.
This means that people in London are paying over double for the same fishy dish (£12.37), with Bristolians coughing up the second most (£10.08).
A spokesperson for NetVoucherCodes.co.uk: “Over the last year, with so many of our favourite restaurants and leisure facilities closed, Brits have been relying on their local takeaway and delivery services to satisfy their fast food cravings more than ever.
“So we thought it’d be interesting to look at which regions are getting the most bang for their buck.
“To do this, we used popular delivery apps to look at the best rated takeaways in 40 regions around the UK. We then calculated an average for each cuisine type and location to reveal which fast food fans are shelling out the most, and which are getting the best deals.”
