Brits want Toad-in-the-hole, on menus, says poll

Toad in the Hole has been voted as the most popular dish Brits want to see in restaurants after Lockdown.

tastecard, diners’ club, has revealed the top dishes Brits would like to see back on restaurant menus when lockdown lifts. As many of us are stuck at home watching re-runs on TV, home cooking is on the rise, prompting the masses to reminisce about their all-time favourite dishes and which ones they want to see back on restaurant menus.

Set to make a comeback is Toad in The Hole, a traditional English meal made up of sausages within Yorkshire pudding batter. This has been voted as the number one dish the country would like to see back on menus after they emerge from lockdown.

Top 10 dishes Brits hope will return to menus:

  • Toad in the hole
  • Stew & dumplings
  • Shepherd’s / Cottage Pie
  • Chicken kievs
  • Liver & bacon
  • Pasta bake
  • Chicken casserole
  • Goulash
  • Quiche
  • Egg & soldiers

Interestingly, but perhaps unsurprisingly, four out of five of people surveyed have never tried jellied eels, a dish synonymous with Cockney East London & favoured by the likes of Eastenders’ Danny Dyer – more for you Danny!

With only 15 per cent of millennials having tried tripe & offal, the delicacy is far from popular. Pease Pudding is more popular but more than one in six Brits have yet to try it. Another not so hot favourite is laverbread, with two out of three having never nibbled on the Welsh dish.

Matt Turner, CEO tastecard, said: 

We always encourage people to try new and exciting foods, from different cuisines.

“It’s good to see classics like Toad in the Hole making a comeback and who knows, we could see modern re-inventions appearing on the menu as lockdown lifts!
