    17 British Foods To Eat When You're Hungover

    Better than painkillers and a pint of water.

    1. A Brekkie Muffin from Original Fry Up Material, Various Locations

    Jog on McDonalds, who needs a McMuffin when you've got this. Original Fry Up Material trade at a variety of locations in the South-East and it's worth trying to track them down.

    If you're really smart, you can hire them to cater an event. Imagine waking up the morning after a bash to this beauty.

    2. Macaroni pie and chips at Old Salty’s, Glasgow

    3. A Scotch Egg at the Ship, London

    This snack is perfect for a three pint hangover – nothing's seriously wrong with you, apart from the consistent craving for something salty and a quiet nap.

    Head out to the Ship and sit by the Thames. Order a restorative shandy and one of their signature Scotch eggs, served with brown sauce. All will be right with the world again.

    If you're feeling really ambitious, learn how to make the Ship's Scotch egg here.

    4. A burrito from Street Food Chef in Sheffield.

    5. Falafel from Falafel King, Bristol

    6. A toasted Cheese at Baltic Bakehouse, Liverpool

    Baltic Bakehouse

    Chewy sourdough bread, filled with melted cheese and controversially, onions. Obviously the chewy cheesy bits on the sides are the best bits though. Go with us on this one.

    If cheese is too much to think about, grab one of their bacon buttys instead.

    7. Build your own sandwich at New York Deli, Cardiff

    8. A Pulled Pork roll at Pork & Co Canterbury

    Drag your sore head out of bed and feast on a delicious pork bap from Pork and Co.

    Choose between apple butter or apple sauce, and add a sharp shard of crackling. Chow down and chase it with a cold can of Coke. All is well in the world again.

    9. A pizza from Oscar And Rosie’s @ Das Kino Nottingham

    10. Philly Cheesesteak from The Liberty Cheesesteak Company London

    The Philly cheesesteak is one step up from a bacon bap. Choose between a whole roll or a half, choose your fave cheese (Provolone, American or “Liberty Wiz") and finally decide on whether you want sautéed onions.

    Once you've given them all your preferences, chow down on what's definitely one of the best sandwiches in London. We promise.

    11. A burger from Patty Smith's, Leeds

    Patty Smith's

    Patty Smith's whopper burgers will cure what ails you.

    If the beef is too much to handle, their chicken burger is a stunner. Still too much? Their fries are immense.

    12. A pasty at Philps Cornish Pasty, Hayle

    13. A schnitzel from Mumma Schnitzel, Manchester

    Mumma Schnitzel

    Stacks on stacks of free-range breaded chicken, sandwiched perfectly together.

    Head down to the left bank to snap up a schnitzel and clear your foggy head.

    14. A burger from Lola Jeans, Newcastle

    Lola Jean's relaxed environment and cosy decor will take the edge off your headache.

    Shoo away the rest of your hangover with one of their juicy burgers. We tried them, and can confirm they're good.

    15. Steak and Eggs at the Lord Clifden, Birmingham

    The Lord Clifden

    See off your hangover the Ron Swanson way with steak and eggs.

    The Lord Clifden add in fried potatoes, onions and toast too because "a light snack" is not the end goal here.

    16. A parmo from G's Golden Chippy, Ackham

    A breaded chicken fillet the size of a pizza box. Creamy bechamel sauce. Pepperoni. Jalepenos. This parmo will either cure you, or see you off.

    If you'd rather some other parmo options, we tried to hunt down the best one in Teesside.

    17. The Full English at Pellici’s, London
