While British cuisine may not have a fabulous reputation around the world, anyone who has visited the country would have to admit that the Brits are not short of good quality options when it comes to eating out. A lot of this is due to waves of immigration which have come to the country over many years, leaving the UK with some of the best Indian and Caribbean food in the world, (some sources even claim that British Indian food is even better than the original).
The most popular types of restaurant in the UK depend on the area which you are in. Manchester, for instance, is famous for its Curry Mile, one of the most densely packed collections of Indian and Pakistani restaurants in the world. Come to Glasgow on the other hand, and you’ll find a fantastic range of Italian food, much of it drawn from one particular Italian village, which moved almost en masse to Scotland’s largest city in the early 20th century.
The question is also complicated by how exactly you choose to define a restaurant. Do pubs that serve a range of food count? What about cafes which lay on an excellent lunch? One of the most thrilling things about eating out in the UK is the sheer variety of types of establishment which you have to choose between. Everything is on offer from five-star dining to casual and cosy eating establishments. We highly suggest that you try as many types of eating establishment as possible on your next visit.
Of course, it doesn’t really matter what kind of food the Brits enjoy the most, the good news is that there’s almost sure to be something which you enjoy on your next visit. We wish you luck in your restaurant search.
