A Traditional English Pub meal in short supply

If you travelling to try out the variety of food in English Pubs

JD Wetherspoon has upset customers by serving pigs in blankets without their blankets at pubs across the UK. The pub chain said it had problems with its meat supplier. In October, the British Meat Association (BMA) warned that pigs in blankets may be in short supply this year due to a lack of seasonal EU workers across UK meat plants. BMA chief executive Nick Allen told the BBC then that wrapping cocktail sausages in bacon is done by hand. "Pigs and blankets are a very labour intensive thing to make and we're short of labour," he said. "If it is something to do with that then it comes as no surprise." He added that meat supplying companies are "chasing their tails" to try and keep up with orders from shops and restaurants.
