I went to The British Pantry for an authentic British Tea with a couple of friends and we absolutely LOVED it!! The tea was delicious, and the food was excellent with plenty to eat. A wonderful 3 tiered tray arrived with delicious sausage rolls, a variety of sandwiches, homemade scones and desserts. The owners are so friendly and gracious and... More

A truly British tea experience. The owners are incredibly friendly and the food is delicious! A fun afternoon get-a-way, although they only serve tea Friday-Sunday. A full tea is $20, but there are other options if you aren't up for a full tea experience. They only offer PG Tips tea because they are all about it being a real British... More

Being British we had to see this place and have a cream tea. Unfortunately the cafe is only open on certain days, so missed out. Everything was triple the price at home. I understand there is a cost to getting things over here. The lady in the shop was lovely and we had a chat. Apart from that, the shop... More

Surprisingly, the beginnings of Colorado Springs and Manitou Springs are deeply tied to Great Britain. The founder of Colorado Springs, General William Jackson Palmer, surveyed the Rocky Mountains after the Civil War looking for routes through the mountains for railroads. Part of his surveying team was "photographer" Dr. William Bell, who had lost interest in medicine in favor of horses... More

We decorated our kids' bathroom in a London theme, and we got the trash bins and posters here. We love that the owners are so friendly and that the products take us back to Britain. You can get PG Tips, Cadbury, Walker's, Irn-Bru, and more. Lots of good feelings here. The name Willy refers to the couple's dog. Very cool.

We've been shopping here for our favorite British foods for well over a year. It has just been taken over by new owners, and we were a little worried about where it was going to go. No need to worry though! The new owners have brought in the same enthusiasm and friendliness as the previous ones, and best of all... More

How did I not know they were here for three years?! I got a hankering for crumpets one day and somehow thought Google would lead me to some. And it sure did. Right down the street. What! Clotted cream, curd, scones, British teas...SO glad I wanted crumpets! The owners are so friendly as well. Just lovely

The tea was enjoyable. The setting is casual. You can choose to drink most of the teas they sell in the shop. They serve a cream tea with scones (fresh), or crumpets and cakes (from frozen) served with clotted cream and jam or lemon curd. Though many items are from frozen (and you can buy a box of them in...
