Great British classics like fish and chips, traditional fudge, regional cheeses and pub grub might sound like old news, but with the very best producers, suppliers and chefs on hand, London's traditional dishes are divine. Get ready to eat your way through a Great British menu!

Meet up with your Local Host whenever and wherever suits you and go for coffee by the Thames, indulging in the aroma of specialty beans roasted with passion by British coffee experts. Or if you prefer, sip a beer in a local tavern as you get to know each other. 

Next, you could explore London's thousand-year-old Borough Market together, an emporium for the best of regional British foods. From delicate artisan chocolates to creamy west country cheeses, fresh crusty loaves from Cathedral Street to succulent sausage from Cumberland (and of course all manner of veggie and vegan specialities) there is something for everyone here, and your Local Host will know exactly where to take you. If you've been here before it's no problem, there are plenty more food markets to explore around the city!

Maybe you'll want to stop for a crisp pint of British craft beer, traditional ale or scrumptious cider in a historic and well-loved pub? From time-honoured to contemporary, there are plenty of brews to choose from. Your Local Host can also rustle up a share board which will host some of the best-known bar snacks, from scotch eggs to tangy olives and pork scratchings.

As the day goes on what could be more appropriate than fish and chips? Enjoy them with your Local Host, while enjoying the view of the River Thames. If you'd prefer a meatier alternative, you could sample a saveloy sausage or even a moreish shortcrust pie (don't forget the gravy!) and if you dare, head to the east end for some jellied eels! If it's a Sunday and you fancy something different, there will be a plethora of pubs and carveries offering the traditional British roast dinner, but your Local Host will know the best of the best to choose from.

Of course your experience wouldn't be complete without dessert! There are hundreds of quaint and unique bakeries to choose from. From vegan banana bread to sticky toffee pudding, scones and clotted cream to Battenberg and jam tarts - your Local Host will have your sweet-tooth needs covered. So if you still have room, relax with a pot of tea and indulge yourself!
