As more lockdown restrictions are lifted, new questions in this week’s ONS survey asked people about how they feel about eating out in restaurants, going to the cinema, holiday travel and whether they had formed a support ‘bubble’ with another household.
The weekly survey, relating to the period 2 -5 July, continued to cover regular topics such as personal well-being and work issues. Findings include:
- As some restaurants and cinemas opened in England, 21% of adults across GB said they would be comfortable or very comfortable eating indoors at a restaurant, while 60% said they would be uncomfortable or very uncomfortable.
- For eating outdoors at a restaurant, the split was 37% likely to feel comfortable with this and 39% saying they would be uncomfortable or very uncomfortable.
- Women were more likely than men to feel uncomfortable eating indoors at a restaurant – 63% compared with 57%. Of those aged 70+, 66% said they would be uncomfortable or very uncomfortable eating indoors at a restaurant.
