Over the years we've tended to go with whatever the particular "pub" did best.

Some of our favorites:

A terrific, rich, cognac-laced gratineed onion soup so heavy with cheese you couldn't possibly eat anything else afterwards.

A mile-high Reuben sandwich on good toasted seeded rye bread.

Fish & chips so crisp & light they almost floated off your plate..

Burgers so fresh & juicy it was a crime not to order them.

A softshell crab sandwich on a crusty roll accompanied by a bloody mary garnished with jumbo shrimp.

Bangars and mash with beans.

i think it's called a french dip in some places, we call it a beef dip around here. it's best when it's on a super crusty bun/roll that won't dissolve in the au jus. some pubs use a soft sub sandwich bun which disintegrates when eating... terrible wikipedia says the two restaurants in LA that claim to have invented it serve the beef dip already 'dipped' but here i've always gotten it 'undipped' & with a little bowl of au jus on the side.

or how about extra spicey buffalo wings, with lotsa celery and blue cheese.
i generally love spicy foods, but not wings. if i get wings i usually get honey garlic, teriyaki or sweet chilli (which are more sweet than chilli)

i forgot all about fried kalamari w/tzatziki! that's another bigtime favourite of mine, i can never seem to get enough! (as long as it's crispy anyway... rubbery chewy kalamari is no good)

yeah the best fish AND chips is light but crispy. at some pubs the batter is thick & crusty, at some it's light but soggy, the best is both. i seem to like everything light & crispy... i never noticed that before
