A STUDY has found that Bournemouth offers the fifth most affordable roast dinner in the country.

Analysis by VoucherCodes.co.uk has revealed that the cost of the popular Sunday meal can vary by as much as 125% across the UK, even at pubs from the same chain.

The study compared prices at chain restaurants Greene King, Harvester and J.D. Wetherspoons. It found that the average cost for a roast dinner in the UK is £9.60, but in Bournemouth this falls to just £8.84. The most expensive roast can be found in London, where the average cost is £11.53.

Anita Naik, lifestyle editor at VoucherCodes.co.uk, said: "December can be a costly month, so it's worth exploring your options in your local area before you head out to eat to make sure you're getting a good deal. The fact prices can vary so much within towns, let alone across the country, shows it really does pay to do a bit of research beforehand."
