IF YOU GO
● Of course, there are contemporary versions of the scotch egg. Ramsay, Jamie and Nigella have beautiful renditions, and you can buy them in posh shops such as Fortnum & Mason or have them sent to your home. You can even get them in roadside stops and supermarkets (the indignity of it).
● Some of the best named pubs in England, our opinion: The Long-Legged Mare (York), The Nobody Inn, (Devon) and our all-time favourite The Jolly Taxpayer (Portsmouth.) Lesser names but still goodies: The Swan, The Plough, The King’s Arms, The Queen’s Head.
