yep. you'll be covered 99% of the time. it'll work in any store or restaurant since it is a VISA card. businesses in busy cities like London keep magnetic card readers around for tourists from the US. not sure about small towns.
but you will want to carry around some cash because in some cases only chip and pin cards will work, a few such case being unattended ticket dispensing machines and gas stations. but since you will have a friend with you who is a local with you there it shouldn't be a problem.
