Are there any British pubs or shops that sell British food in the area?

If you’re looking for a taste of the United Kingdom, you’re basically out of luck here. I’m told by a British friend that you can find foods such as Marmite, Branston Pickle and HP Sauce at Harris Teeter and World Market, but other than that there really isn’t much else British around here. An Oleander Drive shop called British Connection opened its doors in 2002 but is no longer in business, and the downtown British pub Lilly May’s, which had a small menu, is also gone. In its place at 114 Dock St., Wilmington [Map this], is Duck & Dive, which describes itself as a English pub, but you won’t find any food there. You will, however, find people enjoying alcoholic beverages (including 50 kinds of beer) and hanging out with their dogs from time to time, though.

    …and thank goodness for that. British “cuisine” is an oxymoron, wherein the nutrients and freshness are systematically cooked out of the food until it is reduced to mush on a molecular level. ask yourself how many British “cuisine” restaurants you’ve ever seen….
