Montreal may seem like an unlikely place for quality British food (if you’re even of the opinion that “quality British food” isn’t an oxymoron), but the city is home to a surprising number of excellent British pubs and restos that will make you rethink any preconceived notions you might have about the culinary traditions and standards across the pond.
Comfort food is what the British do best, and comfort is in great supply at casual spots like hole-in-the-wall chippy Brit & Chips and homey Hudson restaurant/speciality food shop Clarence & Cripps. But British food (which, for the purposes of this map, includes restaurants that draw inspiration from any part of the United Kingdom) isn’t all chips and beans on toast. At establishments like Dominion Square Tavern, the fare on offer is modern and refined (like much of the food you’ll find in actual contemporary British gastropubs). From Sunday roasts to full English breakfasts or afternoon tea, Montreal is nailing the dishes of ol’ Blighty.
