I have a freind that is opening a traditional english tavern resturant here in the states. We realize we are a bunch of "Yanks" and have no clue as to what the hell "traditional English fare" might be beyound "Fish and Chip".

Any suggestions would be great help.

We have ideas like Bangers and Mash, Shephards Pie, Fish and Chips, Lamb, french onion soup but that's the end of our knowledge and most of that comes form looking up menus on the internet.

What are some dishes you would find in a Tavern type pub over there?

What are traditional English vegetable dishes?

What are some likely desserts found at the table?

Again, any help would be great appreciated.

Thanks in advance
