Well out of all those I've only ever had Fish n Chips, Cornish Pasty and Cheddar Cheese but I know the rest are popular so I'd agree and say its a pretty good list... only wheres the cream teas? and beans on toast? and Sunday roast? and and bangers and mash? and Yorkshire puds?!

Maybe its not such a good list

"A Ploughman’s lunch, with a slab of cheddar, a spoonful of sharp piccalilli and a pint of beer"

Hell yes! eat Drool

I went there last year to visit family. We had fish and chips, but the fish was lying on a bed of mushy peas. And there were spam fritters, too.

Bangers are sausages. They go well with mashed potatoes icon_smile

Mushy peas are pretty foul. The other things they like over there is curry sauce on their chips. It's what people eat when they're broke. Spam fritters have a half life of 40 years, do NOT eat them!

Never tried Spam fritters before but I would be game to love spam. Fried Spam and eggs are the best for breakfast

since the french refer to us as 'le rosbif' surely that should figure as a quintessentially english food; a whole nation defines us by a dish; and btw we dont eat curry sauce on chips cos we are broke, its cos its lovelyhello1
