This is a store/cafe with a British Atmosphere and the food is great! A lot of imported food. Come get the Guiness flavour HP sauce as I hear they may not make it anymore!

Too expensive even by British standards. I ordered coffee ( small cup and pastie that costed me more than $7.00 + taxes. I won't go back to this place. The British store at Steveston was my favorite but they're not there anymore.

They have lots of British sweets and chips, but are often out of the tea I am looking for. They told me it would be there in a month, but then it wasn't, so I ended up buying it online for the same price. There's a few Corrie Street items.

Whether you're a Brit or not, this is a funky place to visit. There are antiques galore, bringing back memories of yester-year. If you happen to be English, you'll love the imported foods and goodies. Friendly service.

Brilliant! Nice to see some true British stuff. Some things are a bit pricey, but, after all, they are imported!

If you're British or just a fan of things British this is the store for you. They have everything from football gear to brown sauce and steak and kidney pie.They also have a nice little cafe if you want to stop by for a snack.
