The culinary techniques, customs, and unique dishes that are distinctively English are a big part of why the country’s cuisine is so famous among locals and tourists.

English Food Dishes to Try

Hundreds of English cuisines may be mentioned, but only a decent number are worthy of recommendation. Take a look at our list below!

1. Fish and Chips

Fish and chips have been a traditional British staple for decades. The ultimate British comfort dish consists of battered cod atop a heap of hot chips.

Brighton and Hove’s fish and chips are some of the best in the nation, making it a beachfront paradise for many tourists, especially Brits who crave the salty air.

Of course, you must travel there before enjoying your fish and chips. It’s simple to reach Brighton and Hove.

It takes just under an hour from London by train, and from London Gatwick Airport, it takes only 30 minutes. Rather than taking a cab or a plane, the eco-friendly choice is to purchase London to Brighton train tickets and hit the rail.

Remember that whether you grab it from a chip shop, a diner, or by the seaside, you absolutely cannot leave England without trying this dish.
