Fish & Chips

There’s nothing that says ‘British Food’ like Fish & Chips. Known the world over, this traditional British dish is on the top of any foodie list for visitors to London and the U.K. Although fish & chips is best eaten on the seaside (think Brighton, Blackpool or Whitby) it is possible to get great fish & chips in London. Fish & chips is traditionally eaten with mushy peas and garnished with salt and vinegar!

Our Recommendation: Poppy’s, Shoreditch or Camden [www.poppiesfishandchips].  Read our full post on the top fish and chip shops in London.  On a Budget?: Poppy’s is happily affordable with a massive portion of fish & chips (easily split by 2) for under £7.00 each!

Sunday Roast with Yorkshire Pudding

Sunday roast is a true British classic. Traditionally this meal is eaten any time from 12noon to 5pm on Sundays. Although you can get Sunday roast with turkey, beef, pork, chicken, lamb and veggie options – it’s important to always make sure you get your Yorkshire pudding! Traditionally served with beef, Yorkshire puddings a true British classic and can often be added to any Sunday roast order. A traditional roast comes with meat, potatoes, gravy and vegetables and should be so large you find it difficult to walk afterwards!
Our Recommendation: We think the best traditional Sunday roasts are found in local pubs and our favourites are: The Three Stags, Kennington [www.threestags.london] The Windsor Castle, Notting Hill [www.thewindsorcastlekensington.co.uk] Anchor & Hope, Waterloo [www.anchorandhopepub.co.uk]

Pie and Mash

Pie and Mash has come a long way from simple steak and kidney or pork pies. Today there are a whole plethora of pie types to try! A classic comfort food, pie served with a pile of creamy mashed potatoes and lashings of gravy is a real British treat!
Our Recommendation: Pieminister, various locations [www.pieminister.co.uk]

On a Budget?: Pies and mash at Pieminister absolutely don’t break the bank, with a portion of each setting you back just £6.50, making it one of the most affordable meals in town.

During our All in One Tour, we have a lunch break where The Princess of Wales pub is located and they do some of the best pies in the city!
