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!

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.
