It is a lovely coffee bar, comfortable, situated at the entrance to the covered market in Oxford. The cellblock where the Cafe Puccino's installed its terrace used to be the playground of artisans and jewelers in medieval times. Now I think there only a jewelry store. The terrace is heated, and it has good room to inside this old house that has been restored. They serve light food that is a little pricey but Oxford has almost London prices, a victim of its fame and the many tourists. The paninis are very good and also make fresh juices. A lot of noise inside there is a very lively place. Puccino's has other cafes in London and Brighton.
Disraelis is another great place to go out in Rotherham, for lunch or dinner. It is one of the most popular pubs in the city. Open daily, 11 to 11, a little later on Saturday, and open later on Sunday. Is the typical meeting place for young people, before going to eat somewhere else, or they gather here after work. Next door is Wellgate Street, where there are other pubs. It is a place that is best avoided during the nights that there are games, as it becomes very animated, but very emotional. There is a big screen in the room below. They organize dances, also games, quiz nights and other activities. The lower area is more traditional, with tables and chairs and the bar, and the upstairs room is more modern, with a pool table, games, and music that is popular.
As Iain Quintana recommended, I visited this pub for lunch. It was a great success and a great tip. It's located in a strategic location at the beginning of the Trossachs on the way to Lock Katrine. Nearby is Kilmahog where there are highland bulls that are hairy with a very large horns. You can feed it vegetables that you buy at the store for 1 pound. The pub food is of great quality, the service is very friendly, and the homemade beer is incredible. For those with children, they are welcome and there are toys for them. They entertain a lot while eating. I recommend it.
The Dickens Inn is a restaurant-hotel in St. Katherine Dock, east London. It overlooks the marina that is sheltered from the tidal Thames by a lock. It's one of the oldest wineries in the port where the goods were stored before taking them to central London and throughout the country. The site, built in wood, is beautiful with flowers on all the balconies. It is on 3 floors, with a downstairs restaurant and a few rooms upstairs. What I like is that it's one of the few places in London where you can eat outside, there are no traffic problems and everyone is walking, it's on the water but not as busy as the banks of the river. The specialties are the roasts and there's a wide selection of pizzas too, it's about 20 pounds/person for lunch with drinks.
This is another of those places not to be missed. It is a cafeteria which can no longer be found in London. Good coffee, good pastries and cakes, lovely service and a unique tables to pass that way. An ideal place to clear your any morning or afternoon. A pleasure to place.
Bella Italia is a British restaurant chain that specializes in Italian food. The on in Brighton is located in the old city center, in the busiest area of the city. For the starters, they offer antipasti such as bruschetta, and dishes that you can share such as different types of cheese, fried calamari, mushrooms or tomatoes with mozzarella. If you only want to have an appetizer with a drink and a snack you can, and there are also many large dishes, a selection of meat and cheese dishes which are specially prepared for a group. If you don´t have much time, there are paninis, goats cheese, or shrimp, which are good and original. There is a large selection of pasta, I liked the fresh penne with cheese and spinach. The lasagna also looked very good. It costs 15 to 20 pounds per person, but sometimes on the web there are 2 for 1 offers.
Located in the Grassmarket, where the executions field was situated, and, as a last wish of those ve were going to die, they were given the option of having their last drink in the tavern. It´s traditional place where you can try the famous Haggis, nappies and tatties. Beware of ghosts!
This Japanese restaurant is in Brighton. Moshi Moshi is a restaurant chain that, until now, was only in England. Its location in Brighton is not the best in town because it's somewhat hidden among tall hotels. But in terms of distance it's about 5-10 minutes walk from the resort. The architecture has become known among locals and visitors, a detail is that the walls of one side of the room are opened and closed depending on the weather. So, you can go from having a completely closed restaurant to a 100% summer terrace. Moshi Moshi Brighton is a large square where diners and kitchen coexist. The essence of the restaurant focuses on the diners ve sit around a bar with a rotating belt containing dishes. Apart from the belt, there are tables that fill the rest of the room. The Moshi menu is basically divided between the "moving" plates and "à la carte" dishes. Prices vary depending on the ingredients and processing, and are indicated by the color of the dish. Sunday is a good day to eat a little more cheaply, as all dishes are reduced to 1.70 pounds/piece.
Nando's was not our first choice for eating out on New Year's Eve because overall the place is more like a bar than a restaurant for special occasions. But the restaurant we'd wanted to go to had stopped serving food at 8 pm (crazy schdule!), so we ended up here as it was one of the few places in the neighborhood still open. The waiter gave us a table in front of the door, which was a pity because there was plenty of space and instead we were stuck with a cold breeze coming through whenever the door opened and closed. Nando's speciality is spicy chicken which is served like a burger or with pita bread. There are vegetarian options and some other meats available, but really, it's all about the chicken. You can get a whole bird, a quarter or a half, as well as chips, garlic bread, coleslaw and ratatouille. It's cheap, and the soft drinks are served with unlimited refills. But unfortunately the food was cold by the time it got to us. The sauces are good, spicy with garlic or herbs to perfectly accompany the chicken.
This small cafe has the distinction of being built in Horace Jones Vault, one of the arches of Tower Bridge, the most famous bridge in London. It's on the south bank and the part that faces the river has much glass so you can see the Thames activity from inside with a coffee. The cafe is open all day, the English breakfast is sausages, baked beans and bacon and the more continental breakfast is baguette and toast or scones. At noon the menu changes to fresh salads and soups, melon and ham, dishes that you generally don't find in a cafe, but being a tourist spot I guess they have adapted to their market. It's open from 8 am - 11:30 pm so you can take advantage of Tower Bridge day and night, open or closed. There is a selection of over 50 beers, English, European, American, bottled and pressure.
On Oxford High Street, one of the main streets in Oxford city centre, is Bonjour Cafe. It's in a building that housed an old pub, and in fact has been serving people food and drinks since the eighteenth century! We only stopped because we were hungry, but this place surprised us by the variety of dishes it offered. All about the bread, pizza, paninis, sandwiches, specialty breads ... but Spanish inspired recipes, as well as Italian and French, which are very tasty. At the sweet level I was slightly disappointed but I had a salad and a ricotta and spinach pie which was very good, the bread also was very good. Prices are similar to those in London, 3 or 4 pounds for a salad, the same for sandwiches. It's a convenient location, with a few tables, and you eat fast because there's so much to do in the city.
The Old Wellington Inn is one of the historical places ( built in the sixteenth century) where the most important business transactions of Manchester City were held. It was the home of the birth of John Byron, one of the revolutionary British phonetics and miraculously was one of the few historic buildings that was not damaged by bombing during World War II , which destroyed most of downtown Manchester. This causes the visual characteristics of this place contrast to the modern city center.
In 1948 the building was declared a monument of the city of Manchester.
In addition to an excellent selection of local beers, the place is decorated with pretty taste, and were surprised by the quality of food and price, not at all crazy considering it is in the city center (a the back of the cathedral) and its architectural features and popularity.
Their culinary specialties include cakes or pie, which are very famous. Likewise, the lamb is another dish to consider.
If you want to eat traditional food in the heart of the British central area, in a typical building, without a doubt this is the most recommended place in Manchester.
Wannaburger is a chain of fast food burgers in Scotland. There are two restaurants in Edinburgh one is on the Royal Mile, number 217, High Street. This is definitely a tourist area, which is filled at noon but at night there aren´t many people, and then there's the West End, Queensferry Street. The latter is more lively at night. They say they have the best burgers in town, and what it does have is fresh Angus beef, which is a type of Scottish beef that is quite tender and declicious. Chicken is are British, and the bread is cooked every day in each store. A hamburger will come out to be about 7 pounds. There is a ton to choose from and even vegetarian food as well. Each hamburger that you eat also goes to a charity for children.
A go-to place for a good English breakfast or burger. Good selection of beer at a good price, too. It's always the same pub, but the details vary from city to city. As Peter said, the starting point is always the same, but the experience may vary. One thing I liked about this palce is that there is always a table available. The restaurant is usually in the center and is a good choice if there's nothing else available.
This London-based hamburger chain is a good choice for lunch or dinner to have an affordable, high-quality burger. Currently, there are 6 restaurants scattered around some of the most strategic points in London, places like Dean St (Soho), Garrick St / Leicester Sq (Covent Garden) or Tottenham Court Road. For about 7 or 8 pounds, you can get a menu that includes burger, fries, and a soda. The restaurants themselves are very friendly and very clean.
The Gourmet Pizza restaurant is next to the River Thames, a few steps from the London Eye. We ate there with friends, it had just rained but the deck was partially sheltered so we ate out. It's a nice place as it's so expensive and you have a beautiful view on one side towards St Paul's Cathedral and the tall city buildings and on the other side Millennium Bridge. We ordered pizza, which cost about 9 pounds, they were a bit small but enough for 1 person. The girl who took our order was friendly and smiling, something unusual in tourist attractions. The dessert wasn't as good, it was supposed to be a delicious chocolate cake but was a little dry, but the coffee was. The bill came to 13 pounds/person with drinks.
London is full, I mean really full, of places to eat, and they all have different specialties. The food served is as varied as the nationalities of those ve live there. One day, we chose an Italian place, as we had already tried many places and we wanted something more Mediterranean. The restaurant is in a small alley surrounded by other restaurants, and is a very welcoming place with its terrace and lights, right near the famous Regent's Street and next to the [poi = 57557] Absolut Ice Bar [/ poi]. La Locanda is not very big, dimly lit and all the decoration is intended to create an intimate ambiance, although having many of the tables so close together can break that intimacy. Luckily, the next table left shortly after we arrived. The service was great! We opted for a baked stuffed mushrooms, pasta with salmon, and lasagna. It was all very rich, and when each dish was served, a girl came with grated Parmesan and black pepper. The price was good, considering the high prices in London, so it is highly recommended if you do not want to try anymore exotic foods.
Ryan's Bar is in a lively neighborhood in West End. It's open every day from the morning on, when they offer a typical Scottish breakfast, with sausage, blood sausage, another kind of square sausage, white beans in tomato sauce and eggs made to order, until the evening when it turns into a bar.
It's a well-decorated place, with a main bar, a wine bar, a space dedicated to coffee and a terrace for those few good days in summer.
The Cellar Bar is a wine bar, a very valued place, that you'll find in the basement of the place. It has wood décor and bottles everywhere, it's a nice place, more than every now that smoking is prohibited inside.
The locals come to have a drink after work, later they go upstairs to eat. The ones ve stay below pick at some nachos or wraps, even though they can choose from the same menu downstairs.
