This store really does have imported British items, and not just souvenirs. There are many items which are hard to find in the US. As they are imported, some things can be quite pricey. That is my only reason for a 4/5 stars.

We visit this store several times a year to shop for 'British' items. The store is very eclectic and has a large variety of foods, candies, books, toys, mugs, tea sets, tea, flags, and they even have a frozen section. We have certain items that we enjoy and have to restock . The potatoes are our favorite as well as... More

A great little shop in Grapevine - stock up on hard to find teas and other great British imports. Best part? Lots of cool Doctor Who items. FANTASTIC.

No self respecting Anglophile can finish a trip to Grapevine without stopping by the British Emporium and saying hello to Sheila and her team. While small, The British Emporium is well stocked with goodies from The United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia and South Africa. The emphasis naturally being placed on British goodies. Things to buy include Crumpets from the cooler, (which... More

This quaint little shop in grapevine was a delight to explore. There is an extensive display of hard to find British fare and essentials. They have many different collections of collectibles and select clearance items in baskets in front of store. From a dollar perspective be prepared to pay top dollar. I enjoyed the trip and the variety offered.

We stopped in here to kill time when we were in Grapevine. Neat little place. We found all sorts of grocery items we had never heard of. We were hoping to find more gift type items, instead of mostly groceries. Seemed a little over priced. Worth a trip inside though.

Being English... I've been here a few times for the convenience of getting something quickly, but this convenience is offset by being overly priced i.e.expensive B&M shop better to shop online e.g. Amazon. Typically, I spend way more than I intend to because once you're there you inevitability get more. The back bacon, sausages, Cornish pasties, sausage rolls, and pies... More

I found this store by accident and I am so glad to have found this treasure. It was all things from Britian food, books, tea sets. I am in love with the English breakfast tea I bought. If I am ever in grapevine again I will go visit.

This is an awesome shop. They have a huge selection of British stuff. We could have spent a lot more time and money there. We would definitely go back.
