Where to get your British food fix in Prague
Five of the best places in Prague to find British and Irish food
So you’re in Prague, either as a visitor or a semi-native expat, and you’re determined to live like a local and soak up the culture – and part of that means dining on local cuisine. But sometimes, after a few platefuls of smaženy sýr and pork knuckles, you might find yourself longing for the taste of your homeland. Here are five of the best places in Prague to find British and Irish food to fulfil that craving.
Fish & Chips, as its name would suggest, serves the popular traditional British dish of fish and chips. Opened in February of 2013, the restaurant is decorated in a style reminiscent of a traditional British fryery with authentic touches like pictures of the Queen and a red telephone box door adorning the walls. Offering eat-in and take-out services, Fish & Chips also serves the typical sides associated with the classic British dish like mushy peas.
Quite a haven for British tourists in Prague – probably drawn in by its oh-so familiar pub name – the George and Dragon at the Old Town Square is a respite for any homesick Brit. The George ad Dragon serves drinks such as Beefeater gin, Magners cider and more Scotch whiskey than you can shake a stick at and when all the booze gets too much you can soak it up with classic fare like Fisherman’s Pie, bangers and mash, a full English breakfast and the adopted-from-India British favourite chicken madras.
Robertson is a butchers, delicatessen and e-shop established by expat Christopher Robertson in 2003 that specialises in British-style meats and cheeses. A carnivore’s idea of heaven on earth Robertson sells everything from cuts of oxtail and British sausages like Lincolnshire and Cumberland, to black pudding and Red Leicester cheese – perfect if you fancy cooking up some traditional British recipes from the comfort of your own home.
Another restaurant serving that old British classic of fish and chips is Ryby & Chips on Myslíkova, identifiable by its London Underground inspired logo. Already a firm favourite with expats and natives alike, given their rave reviews, the restaurant sells battered cod and haddock with typically British sides like pickled onions and gravy. If you’re not a fan of fish, fear not – Ryby & Chips also serves a range of pies and even sells the Scottish delicacy haggis.
They say that wherever you go in the world you’ll always find an Irish pub, and they aren’t wrong – Prague is full of them. And one of the best Irish pubs in Prague to find British and Irish fare is Caffrey’s Irish Bar. Choose from a range of hearty, homely dishes such as Shepherd’s Pie, Irish lamb stew and chip butties. Caffrey’s even serves a Curry of the Day for those looking for something a bit spicier.
