Favourites among the English are roast beef with Yorkshire pudding, an accompaniment similar in texture to a popover; steak and kidney pie; and veal and ham pie. Fish is served often—plaice (a type of flounder), haddock, mackerel, and smoked kipper—and especially popular are fish-and-chips (deep-fried fish and potatoes). Jellies, jams, marmalade, hot cross buns, crumpets, and scones are served frequently with tea.

Traditional fare in the British Isles would include beef tea (a beef extract), whitebait (miniature fish, fried and eaten as snacks), boxty (Irish potato pancakes), brawn (aspic made with pork bits), cockaleekie (Scottish hen and leek soup), bubble and squeak (chopped, fried leftover meat and vegetables), angels on horseback (grilled oysters wrapped in bacon), kedgeree (a casserole of smoked fish, rice, and eggs), shepherd's pie (ground lamb and beef with onion and topped with mashed potatoes), crumpets, banbury cake (a spiced flat cake made with dried fruits), fool (a fruit custard), and syllabub (a dessert made with whipped cream, lemon, wine, and sugar.
