When visiting an authentic English-style pub, you’ll notice dishes that you won’t see in almost any other type of restaurant. Carragher’s Pub & Restaurant is an authentic, family-friendly English pub in NYC serving authentic British food from across the pond along with a soccer live stream and other sports on TV. Here, Carragher’s gives their picks for the top must-try English pub foods to consider on your visit.
- Shepherd’s Pie: This classic British food is a hearty lamb or mutton and vegetable casserole layered beneath fluffy, crusty mashed potatoes. It’s simple, flavorful comfort food straight from the English countryside.
- Fish & Chips: This Liverpool pub favorite consists of beer-battered fish, fried to golden brown, served with French fries—known in England as “chips.” Easy and quick to make, this English pub food has made its way to many restaurants in the United States beyond the pub scene.
- Bangers n’ Mash: This dish combines juicy pork sausages over mashed potatoes, usually covered in a rich gravy or caramelized onions. It’s a very traditional British food, combining simple but fresh ingredients and top-quality sausages to make a classic comfort meal.
- Chicken Curry: Though curries may not seem like an obvious British food, Indian influence has found its way into the English pub culture by way of Indian immigration. It’s not uncommon to find dishes like chicken curry and chicken tikka masala at Irish pubs and British food joints throughout the UK and, to a lesser extent, the United States.
