New research has revealed that on average, Sheffield folk spend a paltry £29.99 on a dinner and drinks for two – lagging way behind places such as Cardiff and Glasgow where lovebirds dig far deeper into their pockets.

The UK wide study found those in Cardiff were the most generous, splashing out £79 for two, way ahead of second-placed Glasgow on £59.

The study by broadband provider Plusnet also found that men paid the most, forking out an average of £65 on a date, compared to £32 spent by women.
