No idea what these are, my first time in London. I didn't make the order.

  1. The thing the egg (middle)
  2. The rolled meat in slices (left)

I can mostly tell what's in them but what are the proper names?

The middle item is a scotch egg (a hard-boiled egg enclosed in sausage meat, rolled in breadcrumbs, and fried), and the item on the left looks very much like a large sausage roll, sliced. (It could be Beef Wellington, but I think that’s too posh a dish to be served alongside the others in the picture!)

  1. Scotch egg: cooked eggs swaddled in sausage meat, then breaded and fried.

  2. Beef Wellington: fillet steak coated with pâté and duxelles, then wrapped in puff pastry and baked.

OR (agree with @Traveller)

  1. Sausage roll, sliced: sausage rolled in pastry and baked (and that would be a rather large version !)
  • You can clearly see on the picture that there is no fillet in the leftmost dish. The pastry is filled throughout with relatively light (in colour) minced meat. May 13, 2018 at 19:00

    In the U.K. it would be pretty unusual to find beef wellington on the menu in most pub/bistro-type eateries, it’s generally quite an expensive dish so you’d probably only get it in the more upmarket places

The second-left looks like chicken goujons. It is strips of chicken breast, in a (slightly) spicy breadcrumb coating, and fried. Fairly common buffet foot in pubs. The right-most are onion rings. Not sure what the second-right one is.

  • The second-from-left looks more like salt-and-pepper squid to me. Oct 21, 2018 at 22:53
