A firm English favourite is fish and chips. Go to Brighton Pier/Beach where sidewalk eating is the norm and fish & chips the preferred dish. There you’ll find a selection to confuse any hungry fish lover. The simple pub food of bangers and mash, baked beans, bubble ‘n squeak (left over vegetables from dinner presented for breakfast in a stir up), Sheppard’s Pie and Cottage Pie are all must haves; so, too, is a full-house English breakfast.  Nothing sets the tone for a day of celebrations better than a good fry up.
