The British use a slightly different method for ordering their food, mainly because there is no need for translations to be made.
You’re able to easily order your food – and pay – by speaking English in the UK. The one difference you’ll find is that instead of saying “fries” (chips), people will say “chips”.
The cuisine varies from region to region, but generally the types of food differ because many are based on what is locally available.
England has more pork dishes, Wales focuses on lamb and cawl (a vegetable soup), while Scotland and Ireland have beef dishes.
Smoked Kippers are also a popular breakfast or brunch dish on the menu in Scotland and Ireland.
If you want to tip your waitress or waiter, this is usually done by leaving the server a small tip at the end of the meal. Although it is widely accepted in the UK that tipping is not needed.
There are restaurants that do use a customer-pays system where tips are voluntarily left by customers as an acknowledgment of excellent service (the exceptions being restaurants that pay their employees entirely with tips).
