English food: According to the British’s life English people don’t like cooking

and they eat out once a week. The traditional restaurants are steak house. The m
ost famous place is pub; British people drink a hundred liters of beer a year.
They don’t use oil for cook, the use butter.

4.1) BREAKFAST:
Normally they eat a mixed combination plate like eggs with tomatoes, beans, saus
ages, bacon and mushrooms.

A combination British plate


Catalan breakfast is absolutely different than British breakfast. Catalan it’s m
ore delicious than English. We eat more simple breakfast, but better.

Britain still has a great tradition for breakfast - offering distinct bacon, egg
s, Cumberland ham, Lincolnshire, sausages… Their breakfasts are completely full
of food.
My conclusion is that British breakfast is one of the worst breakfasts in the wo
rld.
4.2) LUNCH

English people often eat a simple lunch, called packed lunch.

The packed lunch is a mixer behind some sandwiches, some chips and something for
desserts. When we went to England none of us like it, nevertheless, there are s
ome British people who like it.
However, there are also persons that eat normal food like pasta or rice.

4.3) AFTERNOON TEA

Afternoon tea is a British tradition that involves much more than just tea. The
re are a multitude of foods and treats that go along with Afternoon tea, like sc
ones, clotted cream and tea sandwiches.

One of this fantastic food for after lunch is sweets like the picture accompanie
d by tea.

4.4) DINNER

English people hardly ever have dinner later than seven o’clock, on the contrary
, they usually eat at six o’clock.
In this meal, is when they eta more than the other meals. In this picture you ca
n see all the food that they eat. It’s an enormous plate with a lot of food.
There are many sorts of restaurants in England, but the best is the Grill and tr
aditional restaurants. However if you are an estranger we recommended Italian re
staurants because it’s better than grills.
Steak houses are also very popular in England. The English people go to eat out
once a week in the winter and twice or three times a week in the holydays.

In the picture you can see a typical English restaurant, well a luxury English r
estaurant.

“The Cuckoo Bush


The name of this pub in Gotham is a reference to the Wise Men of Gotham who pr
etended to be mad to avoid paying taxes to King John in the 13th century. When t
hey heard that the king was coming to visit their village, one of their mad tric
ks was to begin building a fence around a tree in which a cuckoo had decided to
roost. When the king s men asked them what they were doing, they explained that
they were keeping the bird trapped in the tree so that it would remain eternally
spring in Gotham.
Dog And Bacon
The name of this pub in Horsham is actually a corruption of Dorking Beacon whi
ch is visible from the pub on a clear day.
The Dog And Trumpet
This pub was originally named the Marlborough Arms but changed its name in 1973
when His Master s Voice celebrated its 75th anniversary. The sign of this pub in
London features the famous portrait of Nipper the fox-terrier listening to his
master s voice from a gramophone horn.
The Five All
The signs for pubs called The Five All will systematically show the king who r
ules over all, the parson who prays for all, the lawyer who pleads for all, the
soldier who fights for all, and John Bull who pays for all.
Fitzroy Tavern
The Fitzroy Tavern, a traditional pub, was a meeting place between World Wars I
and II for a group of writers and artists who called the area around Fitzroy Squ
are and Charlotte Street "Fitzrovia". The "Writers and Artists Bar" in the basem
ent contains pictures of former customers, including Dylan Thomas and George Orw
ell.
Frog And Nightgown
This pub in Newcastle-upon-Tyne has a quite unusual name. Ted Ray used to end hi
s radio show, Raise A Laugh, by saying that he was off to the Frog and Nightg
own. The latter was a real inn in London, and the pub here takes its name from
this famous counterpart.
I Am The Only Running Footman
The name of this London pub is a reminder of the 18th century running footmen, w
ho were employed by wealthy men to run in front of their carriages, lighting the
way and shifting any obstacles .
The Mad Cat
The name of the pub used to be White Lion but it had to be changed because the
sign painter s work looked more like a mad cat than a lion.
The Nobody Inn
According to local legend, an unknown purchaser of the inn was said to have lock
ed the doors and refused to take in travelers searching for bed or refreshment.
When they received no answer on the door, they continued on their journeys belie
ving that there was nobody in. Ever since the inn has been Nobody Inn .
The Pelican
The Pelican is often used as a humorous name for a pub. Some witty person has on
ce written, "The Pelican it stands upon a hill. You know it is the Pelican, by i
ts enormous bill."
The Pimlico Tram
Near that pub in London, there used to live an innkeeper named Ben Pimlico. His
name was first given to the pub and then to the district.
The Spaniards Inn
The notorious 18th-century highwayman Dick Turpin is said to have visited this L
ondon pub frequently. When he wasn t robbing stage coaches on their way to and f
rom London, he stabled his horse at the stables nearby. The downstairs bar has b
een altered many times since his times, but the upstairs Turpin bar is original.
Over the bar, there is a pair of guns, which are said to have been taken from a
nti-Catholic rioters, who came to Hampstead to burn the Lord Chancellor s house
at Kenwood during the Gordon Riots in 1780. The landlord held them there by offe
ring pint after pint of free beer, and when they were drunk, he disarmed them. A
mong the pub s famous patrons have been the poets Shelley, Keats and Byron, the
actor David Garrick and the artist Sir Joshua Reynolds.
The Widow s Son
This pub used to be in London s East End. The name dates back to 1824 when a loc
al boy, a young sailor, disappeared on his first sea voyage. His widow mother ba
ked a hot cross bun every Good Friday in his memory and strung them on a cord. W
hen she died and the cottage was demolished, the buns were given to the pub that
was built there, and the pub keepers added a new bun every year.
Ye Olde Trip To Jerusalem
The name of the pub commemorates the crusaders as they stopped for refreshments
on their trip. Incidentally, trip did not mean journey in Middle English, bu
t a resting place where such a journey could be broken from time to time.”
