Best Of British: How To Eat Like A King

Nothing screams British cuisine like a Sunday roast with all the trimmings (hold the sprouts), a hearty steak and kidney pie or the humble fish and chip supper.

When it comes to food, us Brits know how to win the hearts of the nation.

Jamie’s Italian

Nobody can rustle up a Sunday lunch quite like Jamie Oliver. Pop into Jamie’s Italian on Sundays and enjoy Jamie’s juicy roast chicken or a veggie nut roast – with all the trimmings including homemade fluffy Yorkshire puddings as standard!

Roma 2000

If you thought a fish and chip supper was for the seaside only, you’d be wrong. Get your hands on the tastiest fish and chips in town at Roma 2000. Roma 2000 is a licensed fish restaurant in Swansea, their fish and chips are delicious and will make you come back again for more!

The Victorian Restaurant

The steak and Kidney pie is British comfort food at its best. The Victorian Restaurant has a welcoming atmosphere, tucked away inside the Great Western Arcade in Birmingham. It serves hearty pies, grills, light sandwiches, salads and good vegetarian options.


Have you ever tried Haggis, nips and tatties (that’s parsnips and potatoes)? Haggis is a Scottish delicacy, a savoury pudding containing sheep’s pluck; minced with onion, oatmeal, suet, spices, and salt, mixed with stock.

Mharsanta is a Scottish-themed restaurant in the heart of Merchant City. Mharsanta is Gaelic for ‘merchant’ and the menu is the real draw with a long list of Scottish ingredients and dishes. Ask them about haggis, nips and tatties.

Amba Hotel Charing Cross

How can we forget the quintessential English delicacy we like to call ‘afternoon tea’. Cute triangular sandwiches (no crust), cupcakes, chocolate eclairs, vanilla slices all washed down with a cup of hot tea. It’s like a scene from Downtown Abbey.

At Amba Hotel, you can have something delicious, refreshing and quick whether it’s on the menu or not. After all, you should be able to eat and drink as you do at home—whenever you want to—but without the cooking and washing up. Ask about their afternoon tea special; you won’t be disappointed.

You can save on hearty British grub and afternoon tea when you download The ENTERTAINER App from iTunes or Google Play store.
