Whether you’re a meat-eater, vegetarian, vegan or have other special dietary requirements, it’s important that you find the perfect restaurant that will cater for your specific needs and still give you a great British cuisine experience.
The main dish Britain is famous for is the scrumptious roast dinner, featuring meat, vegetables, potatoes (mashed and roasted) and topped off with gravy. But there are also many other delicious meals available, and the best way to experience some of the UK’s traditional delicacies is by visiting a dedicated British restaurant.
It’s very important that you find a good British restaurant so you can have a top notch experience. Below is a guide to some of the important factors to look for.
You definitely want to make sure that the most traditional British dishes are on the menu, but as well as that, you should check that the menu offers a bit of variation. It’s important that you have a good amount of choice when you go to a restaurant, as that way if you enjoy the food you can go back and try something different.
Steak is a very popular British dish.
Restaurants should also cater for vegetarians and others with specific dietary requirements. You can usually find a copy of the menu online, or pop in and ask to look at it before committing to eat there. You could even ask the waiter or call the restaurant if the menu isn’t particularly informative regarding any unusual dietary issues you may have.
Another easy way to see if the restaurant you’re thinking about visiting will be good is by checking out other people’s reviews. Thanks to modern technology most people love to share their experiences online, so you don’t just have to go with the testimonials that the restaurant presents, which will inevitably be favourable.
Using search engines to find reviews and recommendations for great British restaurants is a wonderful idea and can be very beneficial in helping you find the perfect place to eat while you’re in the UK. The Roast Restaurant – London Bridge for example has some great online reviews.
If gourmet food is what you want then you will definitely be able to find somewhere that charges a lot of money for small portions. The food will undoubtedly be delicious but you might be left with a rumbling stomach! The trick to finding a great restaurant is identifying somewhere that serves decent portions at a reasonable price.
Fish and chips is perhaps the most famous of all British dishes.
There is a wide range of restaurants offering British food for every budget. Whether you’re looking for a cheap and cheerful experience, or a 5-course extravaganza, make sure you consider the price before choosing the place to eat.
Finally, one of the most important things to look for in a great British restaurant is a good locality. If you have a car and will be driving, then ensuring that the restaurant has a car park on-site, or very close, is very important.
There are many great restaurants serving British food in city centres as well, which are usually within easy walking distance of some form of public transport. In London there is a Tube stop practically on every corner, and there are some fantastic restaurants serving delicious traditional meals.
The only extra thing to consider with city centre restaurants is that they can get very busy because they are within easy reach of everything. It’s often worth calling ahead and booking a table to ensure that you won’t get disappointed.
With these top four tips you are all set to find the perfect restaurant that serves scrumptious British cuisine. Whatever your budget and whoever you’re going out for a meal with, you’re sure to find a great place.
