if you can make it down to the pub
the pub will make it up to you
Now that lockdown has been eased somewhat, people are starting to eat out again, and one of the great English traditions is the pub lunch.
Unlike in a lot of countries, English pub food can be excellent, and I’m not just talking sandwiches here. Although traditional English pub grub does include the hot beef sandwich, along with steak pies, shepherds pie, and the classic fish and chips.
Fish and chips in an English pub should be either cod or haddock, together with thick cut ‘homestyle’ chips, and perhaps mushy peas, (which if you’ve never seen them look a lot like guacamole).
On Sundays a good English pub will undoubtedly serve roast beef and Yorkshire pudding, along with at least two vegetables. As well as roast beef roast lamb and roast chicken are also popular here.
Or there is that other English Classic dish, toad in the hole.
The key thing is to find a really good pub, and if you don’t know one in the area then just look for a church tower, and there will undoubtedly be a great pub nearby. If they serve it, then try the chicken and leek pie.
Some English pubs have been there a very long time indeed, truly medeval.
