Solo dining increases 160% over four years

The number of people who dine alone in the UK has increased by more than 160% from 2014 to 2018, according to OpenTable.

While the thought of eating out alone can be a daunting prospect for some, the rising figures suggest that the stigma surrounding solo dining has seemingly changed.

OpenTable has revealed that the trend for booking a meal alone is also replicated in the UK’s capital, with London’s solo reservations increasing by 150% between 2014 and 2018.

As more and more restaurants are catering for the solo diner, with the option for counter seating and bar dining, it seems eating out alone has never been more enjoyable.
