Handout on “Eating Out”
Task A: Read the descriptions of British places to eat out and match them with
their names.
1. Now it’s very common in Britain. People like it because the service is very quick.
It has special offers for families and do their best to attract children, e.g. organize
birthday parties. People from any class background can feel comfortable in it.
2. It is for everyday purpose and is used in the evening for “take-away” meals,
mostly fried fish.
3. It is mostly used on special occasions like birthday or wedding anniversaries. It’s
especially popular among aristocracy or business people because the company
pays the bill! You can eat Chinese, Indian, French, Italian and also British food in
it.
4. It is used for everyday purpose. You can have any meal in it. It’s comparatively
cheap and offers a filling meal, a menu for all tastes and an informal atmosphere.
5. It’s an important part of British life. People talk, eat, drink, meet new people and
their friends, relax there. In the past it served nothing but beer, now you can
also order wine, coffee and even hot food. It is not as formal and expensive as
restaurants. Its name and old fashioned design appeal to long traditions of the
country.
