While the U.K. sees 4 seasons in a day and Israel sees 40 degrees in a day, the two places are not as far apart as they seem – they both deep-fry everything (although Israelis opt for vegetables like eggplant and chickpeas to pretend that they’re healthy), they both love their cafés (Israelis opt for coffee, Brits for tea), they both can appreciate a pint of beer (even if it is a watered down Goldstar), and they both believe that everything's better when wrapped in pastry. So for all those London expats, vacationers, or all-out enthusiasts, here’s a list of pubs, places, and restaurants in Israel to get a British bite.

The best places in Israel to find a taste of the U.K.

Bars, Pubs


Camden Pub aims to capture the spirit of the London pub scene and bring it to Israel. Dedicated to the spirit of jazz music, Camden has weekly live jazz shows to delight guests between endless pints of beer and fish and chips. They serve English beers, imported to give as authentic of an experience as possible, from London’s Wychwood Brewery. Paired with one of the many unique English culinary creations, guests will have a night out they won't forget. Come for the beer, stay for the fish and chips and jazz music.

Just steps from Rabin square, this fish and chips joint is ideal for an evening out with friends. The vibe is hip and trendy and the fried fare is deliciously simple—sometimes, comfort food is all you need.

Fish & Chips

There’s no better place to eat freshly fried fish and chips than directly on the sea, looking out at the boats peacefully drifting by. At this little seafood shack, you can find perfectly cooked, crispy-on-the-outside, juicy-on-the-inside fish and chips cooked to order. Just go right up to the register inside where you order and pay, and then give the cooks the piece of paper with your order on it, wait for your name to be called, and chow down!
