Food & Drink

Pubs offer delicious food, often locally sourced with fresh ingredients. Ranging from Michelin starred dishes to home cooked hearty favourites - there's a menu to suit everyone's tastes.

Drinks choices are second to none. Where else can you wash down your delicious meal with a pint of real ale? Cask ale is only available in the Great British pub, and with hundreds of breweries across Britain, you are guaranteed a range of refreshing local ales as you travel around Britain.

If you're not a fan of real ale, pubs are great for their range of international lagers, eclectic wine and spirits and soft drinks.

From sleek city boutique pubs to quintessentially British countryside inns, there is a pub that is perfect for all tastes offering delicious British food and drink. Here are some of our favourite British foods to look out for in pubs across the Isles.

Fish & Chips - Anywhere Coastal

You couldn't write a list of famous British foods without including fish & chips. There is nothing more British than freshly cooked, piping hot fish and chips, sprinkled with salt and vinegar, wrapped up in newspaper sat by the seaside. The best fish and chips are found by the coast, however, with over 11,000 shops across the UK you never have to travel far.

Cornish Pasty - Cornwall

Head to Cornwall to enjoy this local dish. The pastry filled with chunky beef, swede, potato and onion with a light salt and pepper seasoning is slow-baked and golden brown in colour. Today you can buy the savoury treats all over the country but you'll want to visit Cornwall to taste the real thing. 

Lancashire Hotpot - Lancashire

Bubbling Lancashire hotpot with its meaty lamb juices and golden potato topping is a pub favourite and you won't want to miss eating the real thing at a pub in Lancashire. Be sure to order it with pickled red cabbage and a local beer, followed by an Eccles cake, which is also a Lancashire speciality.

Traditional British Puddings - Across the Isles

Nothing ends a meal like a bowl of steaming warm pudding and Britain does this best with a sweet selection of traditional puddings. From spotted dick to jam roly poly, and apple crumble served with custard, British puddings are sure to satisfy your sweet tooth. These warm puddings are perfect for winter but in the warmth of summer, you can enjoy a delicious fruity trifle or a serving of Eton mess. 

With all this wonderful food and drink served in pubs across the British Isles, sink back into a comfy chair by the fire with a pot of tea and start planning your British food and drink journey.



We are delighted to be partnering up with Sophie Grigson's Cookery School - Oxford's first and foremost pop-up cookery school, led by Sophie Grigson. Sophie Grigson is an English cookery writer and celebrity chef who has dedicated her career to cooking simple, easy dishes using new and exciting ingredients. Their nomadic style gives them the freedom to offer an exceptionally wide variety of courses, from basic pasta making to constructing glamorous gateaux. Classes are led either by Sophie Grigson or a specialist teacher from their team. You all cook together (hands-on is their middle name), then you sit down to enjoy the feast you’ve prepared, along with a glass of wine. Their style is informal, enjoyable, and enthusiastic: they want you to take delight in the pleasures of the home kitchen. If you are interested in hosting a pop-up cookery school in your pub please contact sophiescookeryschool@gmail.com.
