U.K. Food  Suggestions?

OK gang, give me some ideas!
So far the food in the UK has been great! We were told it would not be, but so far it has definitely exceeded expectations.
So, what else should I try?
I’ve had fish and chips, cheeseburgers, pizza, all kinds of cheeses – and they were all great!
I’ve had steak pie and food in pubs…
Did not yet have Yorkshire putting but I will (well technically I did because it’s like a pancake but if you have a pancake without butter any syrup can you really say you’ve dad the full pancake experience? I didn’t gave it as part of the full roast). 
So what suggestions can you make? 
What can I try while I’m still here?

  1. A variant on the Yorkshire pudding with the roast theme: A giant Yorkshire pudding filled with chips and smothered in gravy, (which I think in America means sauce, not your gravy) served with bread and butter and a huge mug, (it has to be a mug) of sweet tea. oh, my, it’s heaven on a plate. Also when you get to Scotland you have to try a white pudding supper. You’ll get this in any chip shop. Oatmeal pudding served with chips again a meal to line the stomach and delicious.

  2. Don’t know where you had fish and chips but it’s quality varies enormously from place to place. The best places are anywhere on the coast, but especially in the North.
    Again, sausages vary enormously. There are many different regional recipes in which the herb and spice combinations are well worth sampling. Try ‘bangers and mash’ – sausages with mashed potato and onion gravy, or ‘toad in the hole’, sausages baked in a Yorkshire pudding batter.

  3. I agree defeinitely try a real cream tea – the scones should be homemade and put the jam on first! Also, if you are anywhere in the South East find a proper pie and mash shop – this is not just ordinary pie and mash – well, it is but it MUST have the green liquor on it (and no, it isn’t alcoholic!) Then put loads of salt and pepper and VINEGAR (that’s important). It’s scrummy. And if you are feeling brave you could also try jellied eels (preferably from the coast as they are much better if fresh) – again with loads of vinegar, salt and pepper.. They are the old, traditional Cockney dishes!

  4. Ooh well as true Brit, i’d have to suggest Toad in the hole. Which is sausages with Yorkshire pudding covered in Gravy usually with onons and some veggies. Shepherds Pie is a favourite, it’s lamb mince and gravy topped with mash and cheese. Cream teas are always worth it, any English dessert/pudding like Treacle pudding with custard. (Custard is the best thing ever)
    I’ve no idea who keeps spreading this slander about British food, likely people who’ve never even visited!! 😉
