CONTEXT

Administrative/Biographical history: In order to deal with the extreme shortage of food during world war two, the Ministry of Food instituted a system of rationing from 1940 onwards. Restaurants were exempt from rationing, which led to a certain amount of resentment as the rich could supplement their food allowance by eating out. In order to restrict this certain rules were put into force. No meal could cost more than five shillings; no meal could consist of more than three courses and meat and fish could not be served at the same sitting. British Restaurants supplied another almost universal experience of eating away from home. Here a three course meal cost only 9d. They were run by local authorities, who set them up in a variety of diferent premises such as school and church halls.
