Bath City

Two locations in Somerset among areas with most outdoor pubs and restaurants Bath City News

Two Somerset towns are among the UK’s top 10 places for outdoor pubs and restaurants, research shows.

Last week (April 12), as locals headed out to eat and drink for the first time since January, some places were better served than others.

But the people of Somerset did not go short, with two places praised for their range of bars and restaurants. The ratio was calculated by calculating the number of pubs and restaurants per 100,000 inhabitants.

Wells, England’s smallest city, ranked third nationally with a density of 456 cinemas per 100,000 inhabitants, while Bath came in sixth.

The World Heritage City had 147 establishments per 100,000 people, about a third of Wells’ number.

St Asaph, Wales won the competition with a whopping 1,610 sites per 100,000 people, while Truro was down to number 10 with a ratio of 117 per 100,000.

Other well-served places on the list included St David’s, Chichester, Saltford, Lichfield, Lincoln and Bangor.

But don’t be too quick to judge cities that aren’t on the list.

According to the Inn Collection Group study, only 38% of venues across the UK have outdoor seating.

They collected research data from TripAdvisor and found that some cities were more advantageous than others when it came to the availability of outdoor pubs and restaurants.

After finding out how many bars, pubs and restaurants there were in each UK town, the number of each establishment with ‘outside seating’ was filtered out.

Using this, we calculated the number of outdoor seating per 100,000 people.
