One of the best changes I've discovered in Britain since returning is the proliferation and accessibility of decent pub restaurants. With smoking banned and all-day opening hours they are now really pleasant places to go. A new (to me, anyhow) national chain of pub restaurants, "Wetherspoons", offers cheap but substantial meals and my parents and I have been frequenting our local every now and again. Their breakfasts are particularly enormous and good value [see photo]. After one of those you can happily skip lunch and just have a snack for dinner!
