Brits have lots of bad opinions, but few are as bad as the 1 in 10 people who believe that bacon is not an essential ingredient to a Full English.
God has deserted us
There have been a lot of instances in recent years in which the public have made their feelings known on a variety of topics. Whether it’s been elections across the world, or even Brexit, people across the world are making their opinions known, for better or worse.
Nothing, though, could have prepared us for this. In 2017, YouGov conducted a poll asking the British public what they believe to be an essential ingredient in a Full English.
We have plenty of great pubs in Essex but what about if you fancy going a little bit further out for your pint?
There are some fantastic pubs just outside of the county, which are well worth travelling that bit further for.

The Dog and Duck
63 High Street, Linton, Cambridgeshire, CB21 4HS
What’s it like? What an attractive little pub. The Dog and Duck is set in an old inn, painted white with a traditional, thatched roof. It’s lovely in the summer and equally stunning in the winter – if it snows, it’s like a quintessential English village pub. It’s known for its homemade, fresh, local food and it stocks a good range of craft beers and real ales.
What do the reviews say? “What a great little gastro pub. I enjoyed the scallops and home make chicken and leek pie, all washed down with two different glasses of white wine. This place is a little gem.”

As re-opening approaches, more and more pubs will be turning to new technology in order to keep staff and customers safe
When Wetherspoons made it possible to order food and drink to your table using only an app, pub-goers’ reaction was mixed. Traditionalists, to the extent that they were aware of the technology, lamented the erosion of the ancient custom of mingling at the bar. Younger customers enjoyed the service’s faceless convenience, revelling in their new ability to order unsolicited plates of peas to faraway friends.
That was 2017, which is three years and several lifetimes ago. During that time, other large pub chains have developed similar apps. Greene King have one; so do Brewdog, O’Neill’s, Harvester, and various other well-known chains. In-house software of this kind costs hundred of thousands of pounds to build, probably millions in some cases, but it is a sound investment [ . . . ]
