Try the tavernas and Greek restaurants of Staffordshire. Greek cuisine has been a popular option for British diners since around the 1960s, many of them wanting to recapture the flavours of their island holiday tavernas. As in the rest of the UK, many established Greek restaurants in Staffordshire were founded by Cypriot families. These traditional restaurants still have a loyal clientele in Staffordshire, even as fashions change and contemporary Greek places offer alternative approaches. Greek menus still tend to put the accent on grilled meats or souvlaki made with chicken, pork or lamb and served with salads and flatbreads.
