There are numerous ways to ask for the classic cuppa in the UK. From the traditional ‘tea’, ‘cup of char’ and ‘cuppa’ to regional variations such as ‘brew’ in Lancashire, a ‘Kippa Tae’ in Birmingham, a ‘cuppo the tea’ in Exeter, a ‘rosie lee’ in London, ‘tae’ in Northern Ireland, ‘panad’ in Wales or even a ‘scooby do’ in Manchester, it seems each region has its own name for Britain’s favourite hot drink.
Some examples include:
- ‘Brew’ in Lancashire
- ‘Kippa Tae’ in Birmingham
- ‘Cuppo the tea’ in Exeter
- ‘Rosie lee’ in London
- ‘Tae’ in Northern Ireland
- ‘Panad’ in Wales
- ‘Scooby do’ in some parts of Manchester
Suzanne Cannon, Marketing Manager, Jurys Inn says:
“Our hotels are situated in the heart of 24 cities across the UK and we are increasingly aware that, for overseas guests in particular, our array of regional accents can sometimes be difficult to grasp. We thought it was a great opportunity to extend our warm welcome with a helpful guide to our cities’ favourite phrases.”
The Jurys Inn Greetings Guide has been compiled using a social media campaign which ran primarily on Twitter from March-May 2012. The campaign also awarded contributors to the guide with a chance to win a UK Hotel stay for two.
