With apps making it easier for people to order online, Brits seem to be taking the more convenient route to meet their hunger needs.

Unsurprisingly, some of the most expensive places get takeout are in the capital, with prices averaging out at £9.65 per meal. Whilst the City of London is the costliest place to get food, it is closely rivalled by Cambridge (£9.00) and Aberdeen (£8.77).

Wolverhampton offers the cheapest takeaways across the board, with the average meal costing just shy of £6. They also rank the best in terms of the best value for curry and the second-best value for a pepperoni pizza.

In comparison, the average price of a takeaway in the City of London was a whopping £9.65.

Chicken tikka and pilau rice cost just £6.67 in Wolverhampton, which is almost £4 cheaper than the national average. It is also well below the most expensive curry price in the nation, which can be found in Cambridge for an extortionate £13.42.

Brits recently voted Chinese as their preferred takeaway and fans should consider a trip to Sheffield or Norwich to bag the cheapest Chicken Chow Mein, with average prices sitting at around £5.30.

Aside from Cambridge, where a Chicken Chow Mein costs £8.23, Birmingham and Brighton are the second most expensive places, with residents of both having to splash out up to £7.75 per Chinese meal, while the national average is £6.43.

Hull is the second cheapest place overall to grab a takeaway, with each meal costing an average of £6.17. It is also home to the nations cheapest Fish & Chips, where a portion costs just £5.12.

This means that people in the capital city are paying over double for the same fishy dish in London (£12.37), with Bristolians coughing up the second most (£10.08).

Cambridge is the second most expensive place in the UK to get a takeaway, with the average cost of a meal to go coming in at £9.

One in eight Brits would pick pizza as their go-to takeaway, but with the cross-country average cost of a 12″ Pepperoni coming in at £9.15, it is one of the most expensive across the board.

Fans of Italian food should head to Leeds and Wolverhampton to grab a cheap slice, with 12” pepperonis costing less than £7 each on average. Whilst Londoners will be spending lots of dough at their local pizzeria, with each 12” pepperoni costing £13.83 on average.

Takeaways in Peterborough offer the cheapest burger and chips at an average cost of just £3.73. This seems like a tiny spend in comparison to the average spend on a burger and chips in Aberdeen, costing just over £10.

Norwich residents will have to splash out £9.90, which is the second most expensive price for burger and chips. They also top the charts for the costliest bucket of 3 pieces of fried chicken and chips, coming in at £8.37.

However, fans of chicken and chips should visit Edinburgh, as it had the cheapest deal for 3 pieces of chicken, accompanied by chips for just £4.75.

London is well known for having some of the best chicken shops about and it is one of the few food options that bucks the trend of the capital being one of the most expensive.

People in the City of London can pick up their chicken and chips for around £6.06, which is just 21p higher than the national average cost of this meal choice.

However, kebab fans in the capital will be able to get twice the meat for their money when picking up their takeaway up north. A regular doner kebab costs around £8.72 in the City of London, with the same meal costing just £4.20 in Carlisle.
