A few questions for British people

After all, England is the country of my birth.

I heard that some or all of the "quality" papers switched to tabloid page size during 2003. Is this true?

Although the pound is clearly the currency of Britain and will remain so, how widely is the euro accepted? Can you use euro to buy tickets on the trains from the airport to the city? Can you buy a paper with it at WHS or similar?

Can you still get Jaffa Cakes? Hobnobs? Is there any important English product that has disappeared?

Just in case there are any Edinburgh people reading... Does Desperate Dan's Diner (near Princes Street) still exist? If so, is it any good? Likewise for Rock Bottom.
