This cozy but cramped (think Grandma’s living room—if she were British and had a fondness for tiny tables) restaurant serves British comfort food that satiates locals and ex-pats. You’ll find the usual suspects: bangers and mash, Welsh rarebit, assorted pasties and shepherd’s pie. Come Sundays for a dinner special of roast beef flanked by fluffy Yorkshire pudding and bubble ‘n’ squeak – a mash of leftover roasted vegetables fried like hash browns. Be sure to visit the adjoining shop for UK imports ranging from Cadbury chocolates to ornate teapots perfect for brewing a traditional British “cuppa”. If you’d rather leave the work to the waitresses, there’s a solid afternoon tea spread which includes finger sandwiches, cakes and scones to accompany your fresh pot, all for $20.
