Always a friendly welcome from Trevor & Gail. Fantastic live music & karaoke. Well worth a visit. Missing everyone & can't wait to go back.

“Home from home...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

What can I say? British Bulldog has been established 5 years and is a cracking pub. Gail and Trevor are extremely accomodating and in the time I've been coming,have taken this pub from nothing to a happening place. The footy shirts,pool table and music all adds to the atmosphere in addition to the weekly karaoke and live entertainment-take it in with an ice cold Red Stripe and some of Tommo's jerk chicken or seafood-if you're lucky you might get to meet some local guys-Wes and George who are entertaining and great to have a drink with. Love this place!!!

“The British Bulldog IS a Jamaican bar and pool hall”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

I have been to this pool hall a few times with one of the waiters from the former Breezes Ruanaway Bay. The tables are certainly not good by "Canadian " standards..but if you want that ..wait until you go back home!! The regulars are very supportive but they are also very particular about the rules! This is definitely a great experience for a novice player like myself. The beer is cold and the service very good. You are in a Jamaican bar..of course you get Jamaican change.

“I love the Bulldog!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

Forth trip to the RDCC at Christmas and new year, spent a lot of time day and night in the Bulldog with Gail, Trev (originally from the UK) and barmaid Alicia. This is a very safe and fun bar, full of interesting characters, locals and hotel staff. The drinks are cheap and Alicia makes sure your glass remains filled. Make sure you go to the kareoke night at the Bulldog, its a fun experiance and you'll have never experianced kareoke like it lol!! We spent New years eve in here with the owners Gail and Trev, some friends who were staying nearby, and some hotel staff from the RDCC.....Fab night!!
will definatly be returning soon, and will bring Gail and Trev some Bisto gravy granuels and Haribo lol.
