We are going to England and what will we eat... eastern food

Yes, it's sad, but there are almost no restaurants serving the sort of food that English people used to eat at home before the era of ready-made meals.

Even the pubs no longer serve things like steak and kidney pie. Now it's all Thai food, or Ciabatta and snail droppings.

To make up for it, London offers a vast range of foreign cuisines.

The strange thing is that Britain offers better fresh fish and fresh meat than any other country save France. And English food is very good (if you like red meat and fish). But you won't find such a thing as an English restaurant, save perhaps Rules in Maiden Lane.

Rules

I heartily recommend it, but take several credit cards.

Of course, if you like fish, don't miss Sweetings, after you've been to St Pauls.

George it's the same over here although we still make time to make "real" food when we are home, thank god.
But there aren't Dutch restaurants over here either but in the bars and the more food oriented bars you can find some Dutch food.

To be honest the price of Jules isn't that bad, we pay roughly the same in a normal restaurant... But maybe we eat out less?

Rules, not Jules.

Look at the prices of the extras, and the wines. A full meal here, with a decent wine, is going to cost a bomb.

Sorry

Haven't looked at the price of the wine because i hardly ever drink them so don't know the prices here...
But the price for the meal itself is well... high but not that high when looking to our standards...

How often do you eat out?

Here it is for most people a special occasion so maybe once a month maybe twice for most of us, or less then that.

I know people who eat out every night because they can't cook. Madness.
