The world needs more British pubs. A place to find your friends after work and where you can take the family on weekends. Somewhere to pick up a pint of decent beer and have a hearty meal. I can taste the shepherd’s pie now. Can’t get to a pub? We can still enjoy our favorite pub foods at home.

Pub food is meant to be simple but rib-sticking. It’s actually only been relatively recently that British pubs have started offering much food at all. What they serve was usually what the pub owner’s wife could cook up and bring over. Of course, these days, pubs serve all manner of food, from kobe beef burgers to pot pies made with tofu and southwestern spices.

Let’s stick to the classics. You can’t go wrong with one of these dishes for dinner:

Welsh Rarebit from The Food Network
Ploughman’s Lunch from The Kitchn
Easy Shepherd’s Pie from Simply Recipes
Fish and Chips from Epicurious
Steak Pie from BBC Food

What are your favorite British pub foods?
