    Andy, I was referring to the places listed in his table. Yes I know all about 'Indian' (most are run by Bangladeshes) and chinese & Thai, but it's a shame you can eat standard British food without forking out a fortune.

    Now you're talking! I haven't had a pint of Gale's HSB for ages. I grew up in Hampshire and HSB was my regular pint during my teenage years.

    When playing darts or pool my usual was a light and bitter. These days I'll settle for a Guinness.

    It is congealed pigs blood cooked in pigs intestine. Usually served sliced and fried. See: http://www.g4cio.demon.co.uk/bpudding/pudding.htm
