It's sometimes said that British food isn't very good. Sure, it's not always high end. We like simple dishes, we're good at rustic cuisine. We get unfairly accused of producing nothing but overcooked meat and veg and lumpy gravy, and we can probably agree that the Brussels sprouts were a big mistake. But don't write us off entirely. We cover all of our desserts in custard. We have an entire meal that's basically just scones and tiny cakes. There is nothing that we cannot do with a potato (and if we can find a way to put more than one carb in a meal, you bet we'll try). And have you tried a proper Cornish pasty? Traditional British food is definitely something worth celebrating, especially at one of these fantastic restaurants.
