Any pub / British food here?

Moved here full time about four months ago and have yet to find any place that serves any kind of British fare. I'm especially looking for Sunday dinner (roast, yorkshire pudding, potatoes, gravy etc.). I'll settle for anything really though, meat pies, steak sandwiches with mash or chips and so on.

Any tips?

  1. I hate to say this, but you are out of luck. The International Food Store stocks British foods to cook at home and then there's FInn McCools for weekend chippy. There was an English tea room on the north shore, but I don't know if it's still operating. Most of my British friends rely on care packages from home and the slim pickings from the International Store and World Market fro English Cadbury's chocolate. If I hear of anything else, I'll post.

    1. There is an English pub on the west bank close to the ferry landing called Crown and Anchor, but no food except from a local eatery that delivers and it isn't what you are looking for, but good.

      1. The Daughters of the British Empire hold bake sales & have dinners.
        I think there is one usually the first weekend of Nov. usually at the Greek Orthodox church.
        Also some other links that might help you . . . .

        Rose Manor B & B
        Owners Peter & Ruby Verhoeven
        Give Peter a call & tell him what you are looking for.
        See what he says.

        Here's a link to Finn McCool's

        Crown & Anchor

        Hope this helps. Please report back with what you find!

        1. Haywire.. sorry but there really isn't anything in NO other than what has already been posted. I'm a UK expat (20 yrs US/2 yrs NO). Best bet for the holidays is ordering on-line. I've used these guys in the past:

          I haven't made it to the Crown and Anchor as I live on the eastbank. Getting home from there after a few pints just isn't a good idea so I console myself with the BullDog on Magazine :-0

            I'm British and lived in New Orleans for years. The Windsor Court has a marvelous English tea. They used to have an English chef and had fish and chips but no more. Pete's Pub in the Intercontinental in a pinch has a bit of an English feel to it and The Columns is reminiscent of an old English hotel but no English food there, so sorry you're out of luck!

          2. Thanks for the leads even though it appears we're out of luck. I guess that's my cue to messy up the kitchen a bit. If I come up on anything I'll post back.

              just out of curiosity, did you follow up on any of the leads I gave you?

              Not promising anything, but might be a link to some of the underground places in N.O.

              At the very least you might get invited over to a proper Brit supper.
