You'd be hard-pressed to find a Brit who doesn't have something in the closet from Marks & Spencer (or "M&S," as it's popularly known). This major chain is famed for its classic, dependable clothing for men, women, and children—affordable cashmere and lambswool sweaters are particularly good buys—and occasionally scores a fashion hit. The food department at M&S is consistently good, especially for frozen food, and a great place to pick up a sandwich or premade salad on the go (look for M&S Simply Food stores all over town). The flagship branch at Marble Arch and the Pantheon location at 173 Oxford Street have extensive fashion departments.

You can find many services all over England with M&S Simply Food. Sure beats rest stops in the States w/ their McD's. The Prawn & Mayo sandwich stands out. Others in the same price & availability range _simply_ do not come close (looking at you Pret a Manger) and can make you want to wash the taste out of your mouth.
