Eating out became a favourite occupation of Victorian society, it had always been possible to purchase hot food for example hawkers sold jacket potatoes and butchers shops sold fried pork and onion however these were the forerunners of fast food outlets rather than restaurants. There were cookshops in cities where the working classes took meat to be cooked for them but they were not respectable social venues, as we understand restaurants today. Dinning rooms in Europe inspired restaurants like the one featured on this advert, and many were opened in 19th century cities.
