well, i like pubs because their usually so friendly and sell good homemade meals at low costs. be careful though because some pubs dont let people under 18 in because of the drinks.
the atmosphere is very nice, and the prices are good.
The Crypt.: The Crypt.
Waitress's wear old fashion black and whites with frilly aprons. Tables are a bit too close together. Great for lunch with pals.
Favorite Dish: American Fork Salad. A selection of fresh fruits and cottage cheese with crusty bread.
Lots of great Chinese...
Lots of great Chinese restaurant in Soho, London. Don't expect the same kind of Asian Cruisine as you will get from home. But not too bad, it does blend off well with some additional local favor.
Moving around on a budget. Cheap fast food are available everywhere, hotdogs.. fish & chips (with lots of vinegar - yummy yummy!!) and others....
You can find English tea houses everywhere serving hot scones...you cannot find these kind of hot scones anywhere in Mark & Spencer.
The one food I miss is the local grilled fresh water tout down the lake district. It's so good, I can never find a replacement anywhere else all these years. I will definitely go for it again if I have the opportunity to back to UK.
Mid way up the road to Lake Windermere (if I did not remember wrongly)..The ambience is great very country styled kind of restaurant.
Favorite Dish: Grilled Fresh Water Tout from the Lake District.
Kettle O Fish in Rye (near the...
Kettle O Fish in Rye (near the coast in East Sussex)
I had read in one of my travel books that this was the absolute BEST place in all of England to have authentic fish and chips. We headed there for lunch-- resulting in a major altercation between my husband and me! It truly was authentic-- a real greasy spoon-- not a tourist place. Charley was horrified! He really isn't one for greasy food. Kelly didn't care-- she never even intended to try fish and chips.
We stood in a long line of locals waiting for the shop to open at noon. Then you had to take your food outside and eat. We sat on a wall near the docks.
However, we endured and it really was wonderful fish and chips. We sat outside looking at the little boats-- with barely a drop of water in sight due to the tides!
Favorite Dish: Fish and chips-- of course! This is the real thing-- you stand in line at a counter and your food is wrapped in paper.
Maybe the Castle Restaurant,...
Maybe the Castle Restaurant, Inverness, or their Chinese takeaways! You can fill up for £5, but REMEMBER - almost every restaurant in Inverness closes at 9pm, so unless you want to eat expensive (£20+ each), get there early!
Cheap, filling, and EXCELLENT service, especially in the Chinese Restaurant along from the train station, away from Marks&Spencer's!
Favorite Dish: Haggis was surprisingly nice (just don't think of the ingredients) - try the beef stew, venison burgers or salmon, too!
I haven't got any particular...
I haven't got any particular favourites - as in most other big cities there is a Hard Rock (the original is in Park Lane, London) which is normally pretty good, otherwise plenty of good places in the West End of London. Also there is an Italian restaurant in The Trafalgar Centre in Manchester which is very good.
The Jumble Room at Grasmere...
The Jumble Room at Grasmere...
The restaurant only had six tables and it was crammed full of nik naks and collectibles. The husband and wife team obviously love cooking and this came through. They also have a passion for cows (?) and there were delightful canvases covering the walls and the tablecloths were cow prints!!!
Favorite Dish: Caramelised Onion and Mustard Tart with Dauphnoise potatoes served with a salad and tomato salsa....aaaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrgghhhhhhhhh! Just heavenly. Washed down with a bottle of Australian Semillion Chardonnay.. :-o
I do not have ONE favourite...
I do not have ONE favourite restaurant, I prefer the out of the way places where the citizens of London go to eat their meals, and from whom you will quickly learn of other great places to dine.
Atmosphere, Atmosphere, Atmosphere! What is more important than this - nothing in my opinion, and this is what one can expect to find in nearly every Pub in London, more so when one meets the other guy - halfway.
Favorite Dish: My favourite menu item, is what is on the menu board, don't be fooled by the stories the 'Brits can't cook!' False! they can, and do prepare some fine foods, especially their fish & chips!! !
My favourite resturant is at...
My favourite resturant is at the Muckrach Lodge hotel. It is just outside a small village in the north of Scotland and serves magnificent cuisine using the finest scottish produce, i.e., game, salmon, e.t.c.
The open fire in the bar provides a haven in a cold sunday afternoon, arriving for a bite to eat. It can be very pricey but well worth parting with your cash for!!
Favorite Dish: My favourite dish has to be the famous sticky Toffee pud!! it is reknowned and has to be experienced!
a little italian restaurant,...
a little italian restaurant, in Edinburgh, in the Grass Markets. I can't remember it's name...but as I remember it's the only Italian there.
Very atmospheric...& hilarious. The staff were VERY Italian...all the 'hello Baby...' kind of talk you expect from Italians....but when they went into the kitchen to relay your order...they were as Scottish as you can get them!!
I can't remember the name of...
I can't remember the name of the resturant but, it was in Piccadilly Circus and it was a seafood restaurant.
The manager of the restaurant gave us free chocolates and little cakes to have with coffee.
Favorite Dish: Everything was yummy and I'd go back there again.
In London, you should eat at...
In London, you should eat at any pub at least once. Also, we ate almost every night at a variety of Indian restaurants. They're more expensive than the same kind of place would be in the U.S., but are also more upscale places and the food generally is of very good quality.
Favorite Dish: Try as many as you can of the English specialties, trifle, yorkshire pudding, etc.
There was no favorite...
There was no favorite restaurant, I don't eat meat and often there were not vegetarian restaurants so I would have to make do with dishes that were OK, my neice did not want to go to a vegetarian restaurant if I did find one. India restaurants work well for me.
I like any restaurant that has tables outside.
Favorite Dish: Can't choose because of not getting what I would have really liked.
The Square: The Square
This place used to be a cinema, so it's HUGE. It's got 2 floors, but only the ground floor is open at daytime, and used as a restaurant. It's a lunch place, with low prices, and it offers a bit more service than most other pubs. The waiters come to take your order, and you can stay seated all the time. At day time (until 6 pm) all kinds of people go here, while at night time, it's more popular for the younger crowd, with it's spinning TV-sets showing highly commercial pop music, and colourful cocktails mixed by enthusiastic staff working in the big, circle bar.
Favorite Dish: They change the menu all the time, but I recommend trying one of the sandwiches, as that is what the kitchen does best!

Waggon & Horses Pub
48 Gillygate, York YO7EQ
Prices were reasonable but more important was the friendliness of the hosts, Jim and Gill
There are two sections, smoking and non-smoking which was a most important plus for me.
Favorite Dish: Chicken Kiev was great and the desserts were impressive.
