Mr Worrall believes the usual£8,500 budget for the annual meal is too high and unjustified at a time when the local authority, which has no overall control, is having to make cuts.
Instead of the usual sit-down meal at the Town Hall the Labour councillor has arranged for guests to meet there and then be taken by coach to a selection of restaurants around the borough.
Guests were able to choose in advance what kind of cuisine they preferred, ranging from fish and chips to Chinese and Italian.
He said: 'When you are being forced to cut services, to have such a sum is unnecessary. When cuts are being made, nobody clocks on to the fact that nothing has touched the mayoral banquet budget.'
It is not the first unorthodox move by the mayor.
When he began his term of office he said he did not want to ride in the petrol-fuelled mayoral limousine and has since arrived at several functions on his bicycle.
