  • British Lion

    I've had yummy fish and chips in London and was wondering about the same at the British Lion here in Frisco. Anyone have experience/reviews?

    I went there for the first time with a date about two months ago. I've never been to London, so you might have to take this with a grain of salt. I got a sandwich of some sort, Date got the fish and chips. We both agreed the food was yummy. The pricing was about right for being around the square(A little pricey for what you get). They had a good selection of beers on tap, I got a delicious porter that was recommended by the waiter. Date had a Guinness. They have three dart boards available to play. It has a nice vibe to the place. That's about all I can say about the pub

      Can not comment on the British Lion, however if you are ever in Toronto, this is the go to place. Expect long wait times in the evening

        fish and chips at the British lion are excellent. They are Beer battered with Newcastle brown ale. Fish is very flakey. I think you will find them comparable to london fish and chips.

          The Celt in downtown McKinney has excellent beer battered fish and chips. I believe this place used to be Churchill's up until about mid-2014.

              As a Brit myself I would have to say that the food in the British Lion is pretty bad.

                So where is it good? I spent a month in England back in high school days and remember the fish n chips being the highlight of my trip. Where can we find authentic tasting ones in our area.

                    I'm sure you might be joking, but honestly, if you think the food in England is bad you're really not trying very hard. Things have come a long way.

                    One of the most interesting things I've noticed is eggs. The eggs over there actually taste like eggs, with rich dark yellow yolks. The eggs here seem dull by comparison. I still love 'em though.

                      Yeah I'm a Brit too, and won't eat at the lion. You can't get comparable fish n chips here, at all. BUT, my American husband eats a lot when we go out. He really like the F&C at Gordon Biersch, and he says Lazy Dog's were pretty good too.

                          We tried British Lion last night, not a good experience. The food looked and tasted nothing like real pub food.
