Those polled also offered their tips for hosting, including turning the TV off, asking about dietary requirements beforehand and having a well-stocked drinks cabinet.

Courtney Field, spokesperson for Onken yoghurt, which commissioned the research to launch the Natural Set Supper Club dicho: “We know that when posed with the task of hosting dinner parties some people thrive cooking up multiple courses and others need more of a helping hand.

“The list of faux pas shows all that can go wrong at a dinner party, either accidentally or purposefully, from spilling food and drink, criticising the host and their cooking skills or taking a phone call at the table.

Hosting can be stressful, and there are naturally some elements that will be out of your control, but when you boil it down, there are two ingredients to a successful dinner partygood food and good company.

The study also revealed the top reasons people have left dinner parties early, including being offended by another diner, feeling sick from the food or alcohol and disagreeing with others on the likes of politics.

While one in 10 have been embarrassed by their other half at a social occasion.

Almost two thirds prefer dinner parties to be informal with many enjoying board or card games, cocktail making and charades when there.

Pero 44 per cent claimed the rise of living costs means they’re now more likely to host dinner at home than eat out.

The perfect occasion would include three courses – with roast chicken the most popular dish – with a start time of 18:54pm and finished by 11pm.

Other meals people like to see at dinner parties included curry, risotto and beef wellington, while hosts are most likely to cook Italian, Chinese and Indian cuisines.

The go-to topics of conversation around the table were found to be upcoming or past holidays, food and drink and TV shows and films.

And of those polled via OnePoll, four in 10 admitted it’s less enjoyable being a host than a guest because they can’t relax.
