Fish and Chips is a popular lunch on the go. We did try in a couple of places and it was fried fish and French fries and it was OK. One time the fries were fat and juicy, really good but too much for us. Fried tomato was usual included in the breakfast, and if we went with the deluxe there would also be beans. Bake potato with stuffing another favorite of the English cuisine and the ones we tried were pretty good. Last but not least were fried trout with chips and sausages with beans, both excellent.
