N.B.(“eat out” means eat in restaurants, bars, pubs)



A traditional English breakfast is a very big meal - sausages, bacon, eggs, tomatoes, mushrooms ... . But nowadays many people just have cereal with milk and sugar, or toast with marmalade, jam, or honey. Marmalade and jam are not the same! Marmalade is made from oranges and jam is made from other fruit. The traditional breakfast drink is tea, which people have with cold milk. Sometimes people have coffee, often instant coffee. Many visitors to Britain find this coffee disgusting!

For many people lunch is a quick meal. In cities there are a lot of sandwich bars, where office workers can have a meat or fish sandwich with brown or white bread or a roll. Pubs often serve good, cheap food, both hot and cold.  School-children can have a hot meal at school, but many take a snack from home - a sandwich, a drink, some fruit, and perhaps some crisps.
