But which culinary delights are conjured up when you think about the UK?

Of course, it’s not just about fine dining; we have fantastic traditional country pubs, delicious seafood restaurants located right on the seafront, quaint coffee shops, delicious delicatessens and so many other fantastic gastronomical delights to tantalise your taste buds.
