Discover Traditional British Fare in England March 1, 2023
Fish & Chips
If there’s one dish you absolutely have to try while in England, it’s fish and chips! The classic dish is the staple of the Great British summer (all three days of it), and features deep fried battered fish served with thick-cut chips (French fries). It’s then up to you to cover the dish in the traditional salt and vinegar, or simply smother in ketchup.
For guests of Brockencote Hall Hotel, the resorts’ Le Colonial Bar serves a delectable fish and chips dish on its lunch and dinner menus. Or, for those staying at The Arden Hotel in Stratford-Upon-Avon, Loxley’s Restaurant & Wine Bar is consistently recognized as having some of the best fish-n-chips in town.
Full English Breakfast
A full English breakfast consists of bacon, sausage, a fried egg, mushrooms, baked beans, toast, and grilled tomatoes, often accompanied by a side of black pudding. It’s always served with coffee or tea, and this hearty dish is the perfect way to fill-up before starting a day of sightseeing.
If staying at Mallory Court Hotel, check out the popular Cafe Royal in Leamington Spa where delicious Full English Breakfasts are served all day!
Bangers & Mash
Bangers and Mash is a popular menu item you’ll find in most pubs and restaurants throughout England. The bangers are sausages (traditionally Cumberland), placed atop the mash (mashed potatoes), all topped with brown gravy. It’s a common dish in most pubs, although you can sometimes find higher-end versions in some posh restaurants.
When staying at Brockencote Hall Hotel, why not book Private Dining and tuck into a hearty portion.
Scones are typically served with clotted cream and jam as part of a traditional afternoon tea. They’re less of a breakfast item and more of an indulgent afternoon treat with tea. You can find scones almost anywhere that serves tea, as well as in most grocery stores and bakeries.
Some of the most delectable homemade scones can be found at Afternoon Tea available for guests of Bovey Castle Hotel in Devon, at No. 44 Brasserie at The Arden Hotel in Stratford-Upon-Avon, and at the manor house at Greenway Hotel & Spa in Gloucestershire.
Sticky Toffee Pudding
By far one of England’s most favorite desserts, Sticky Toffee Pudding is a sponge cake with chopped dates, all covered with a warm and delicious toffee sauce. It’s often served with vanilla custard or a scoop of ice cream.
This deliciously sweet treat is offered at Orchard House Café located within Mallory Court Hotel.
