In towns and cities across the UK there has been a quiet food revolution - UK consumers are eating out more than ever before.

From fiercely-local independents specialising in regional produce, to chic high street brands with exciting global flavours and cool decor, the UK palate is evolving and thanks to TV shows like ‘The Million Pound Restaurant’ dining out has become a national pastime. Property developers and entrepreneurs alike are flocking to Openings so they too can be part of the UK’s restaurant revolution.
