My husband and I vowed never to support British Pride Bakery after being verbally abused at a gas station by an employee in a branded vehicle. In a weak moment during a craving for scotch eggs ... my husband bought us a couple from them...at The St. Jacob’s market location today for our picnic. They were the worst we’ve ever eaten. The poor little over cooked egg was enveloped in a saggy crushed cardboard casing with virtually no sausage... only filler. Quite a lack lustre experience. I suppose we should have stuck to our guns.More

I realize that Canada has a ban on offals so the taste of the haggis would be slightly different but It wasn't at all what I was used to. Maybe they were made on an off day but everything I was so happy to find...was disappointing --most had way too much oatmeal in it. But the tattie scones were good. as were the eccles cakesMore

No pork pies, the scones are never fresh. They don't like you using a credit card to save the bank commission. Give this place a miss. Very disappointing.

We stopped in to pick up some baked goods and were greeted by loud, obnoxious, heavy metal music blaring over the speakers. We almost turned around and walked out had it not been for the great selection of baked goods. Lots of meat pies to...choose from as well as delicacies like scotch eggs and eccles cakes. Lots of British canned goods as well. Staff seemed very helpful but completely oblivious to their poor choice of music which was completely wrong for the mood of the store. Hopefully they smarten up and realize that music sets the mood for the customer, and is not necessarily for their own entertainment. It really detracted from the whole experience.More

This Bakery/Store is an absolute asset to Burlington. They offer Retail Groceries from the UK. Teas, Chocolate & other English cooking items. The Bakery coolers are amazing - to quote O. Wilde "The only way to get rid of Temptation ~ is to yield to...it." You cannot resist when you stop in this place. Often buy the Chicken Pot pies and reheat on low for Dinner to make a hectic day easier. We buy the Sausage rolls and divide up for Company when having Drinks. After gorging on Victoria sponge cake in England each time we visit - we have come home only to the disappointment you cannot find a Bakery in Hamilton, Burlington Oakville who even knows what we are talking about. We have had it twice in the last two months, The Minis are great as a self treat and we ordered a large one ahead of time for a Friend's birthday ... was a huge hit! Fresh Creme only here and priced right compared to some cakes we have usually ordered for triple the cost. CANNOT recommend this place enough! And although recently moved to Hamilton - it is well worth the effort to head back to Burlington and stock up. Clerks are very polite & friendly to boot! Not sure when we'll get back to London... but at least we have a go-to place for comparable Baked Goods! Going to surprise some English cousins on Mom's side with one of these Bad Boys this summer!More

When I need a hit of pie from back home this is the place. 3 pies for $12 is great for what you get and the soda bread to go with it was just delicious. A definate for any local or expat who needs something...fresh, crumbly pastry hit of Britan and Ireland.More

There are unique foods, drinks and knickknacks here! My only disappointment was I couldn't sit and enjoy a tea or coffee :( Oh well, it's still good.

The delays you faced while trying to open were killing me and my wife!!! We faced similar issues with the city years ago and know the feeling of having no control!!! That aside we have been in several times since you opened and can openly...say that your bakery items are the best we have had in Canada. You could close your eyes and been transported back to England. So much flavour and your pastry is unlike anything we have found in our 30 years as expats, including the 8 we spent in OZ!!! We have a wonderful selection of British shops in Burlington and I must admit was very skeptical about a new shop (bakery) but now you are here I couldn't have been more wrong!!! The other shops better raise their game or face losing a lot of business to you!!! We know a good few Brits and all I mean ALL have tried and loved your bakery, so well done on making a great first impression. We heard a few nasty rumours prior to you opening and were advised your groceries would be a lot more expensive than BGW and British Grocer even one that your bakery was over hyped but obviously the rumours contained no substance!!! We were surprised at the prices being so low on your groceries so much so we are now regularly shopping for our favourite British treats every few days instead of when we feel like treating ourselves. Bravo on the selection!!! I will finish on the bakery, the only thing I will say I haven't LOVED was the hot curry pie (it was too hot, so that's on me). Everything else we have taken home has been remarkable. The pies, the sausage rolls which are $2 each in the bags which is amazing value, the shepherd's pie, scotch pie, cheese pasty's and scotch eggs are our favourites. We also loved the jambons as we haven't had them for decades. Showing my age aren't I!!! My wife is taken back with your cherry bakewells and empires but her favourite is the steak and kidney pie!!! Well done on everything thus far and I wish you continued success! StanleyMore
