Being English... I've been here a few times for the convenience of getting something quickly, but this convenience is offset by being overly priced i.e.expensive B&M shop better to shop online e.g. Amazon. Typically, I spend way more than I intend to because once you're there you inevitability get more. The back bacon, sausages, Cornish pasties, sausage rolls, and pies... More

This is an awesome shop. They have a huge selection of British stuff. We could have spent a lot more time and money there. We would definitely go back.

I knew this was in Grapevine but never found it. I found it and explored it. Such a variety of can, jar, boxed and bagged English goodies. Drinks and candies. Also British trinkets. Need to visit.

The only reason I did not give this 5 stars is because it is in Texas and not the UK. The store is amazing. Although they cannot have everything British they certainly make an effort. The food is amazing. The tea even better. Try the Snore and Peace tea and you will sleep like a baby. The bangers are as... More

As an American with British heritage, I greatly enjoyed visiting this shop. This place has everything you can think of from the British Isles. There was British food, sweets, blankets, clothes, books, etc. If you have any fangirls in your family, they would love all of the Harry Potter and Doctor Who merchandise. I did. I had to keep myself... More

I visit the British Emporium at least once a month to stock up on UK kitchen staples and small gifts. This shop is jam-packed with goodies that you just can't get at your regular grocery store, and the owner Sheila is absolutely lovely and welcoming. They have a huge selection of Doctor Who stuff, and host a Doctor Who Day... More

This store has the widest selection of British food and paraphernalia I've seen in America - and the wife and I check out every British store we can. The selection is almost overwhelming, and yet it's somewhat lacking. The store was out of several items they advertise as carrying on their website. The proprietor was not particularly friendly when people... More

Small Place with a good collection of the selected/imported confectionery and other English stuff. Good place to visit if you are looking for gifts or souvenir. Lady managing the store was very humble and helping. I got my my English chocolate Quality Street I was looking for so long. You may find it little expensive if compared to other stores... More
