We have been coming here for years, love this place. The people who own it or work here are very helpful. It may be small and slightly crowded, but generally speaking, if you want it they can supply it. We come for clotted cream, teas,...More

The owner was a pleasant and helpful gentleman who helped me pick out some new crisps to try after I told him I loved Walkers Cheese and Onion. Lots of British goodies to choose from!

The British Emporium has a wonderful collection of food, gifts, books, and other British memorabilia. If you are an Anglophile or just curious about some different sauces and jellies this is the store for you.

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.

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...More
