Eating out in the UK is a must when holidaying at a Sykes cottage!

Many people let their stomachs lead the way when choosing a holiday spot. When you think of Italy, you think delicate thin-crust pizzas, silky smooth gelato and crisp white wine. In Spain, it’s all about tapas, hearty Paella and smooth Rioja. But which culinary delights are conjured up when you think about the UK?

Did you know that the UK and Ireland now have over 160 Michelin-starred restaurants? There are even vegan Michelin star restaurants to accommodate everyone!

Of course, it’s not just about fine dining; we have traditional country pubs, delicious seafood restaurants right on the coast, quaint coffee shops, and classic fish and chips.

This area of the site has amazing recipes, some of the greatest locations to eat and drink in the UK and Ireland, and much more.

Browse our UK Travel Guide and discover food and drink inspiration in dedicated holiday spots for eating out in the UK.
