For many reasons British food has not got the best reputation. Actually, it is not as bad as some tend to think. People in Britain really like to eat out and a lot of occasions like anniversaries and birthdays are celebrated in restaurants.
Every part and region of Great Britain has their own speciality. When in Scotland, you should give haggis a try; in Wales, there is no way around lamb with mint sauce; in Northern Ireland, Irish Stew is a “must”; England has its roast beef and Yorkshire Pudding.
