No self respecting Anglophile can finish a trip to Grapevine without stopping by the British Emporium and saying hello to Sheila and her team. While small, The British Emporium is well stocked with goodies from The United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia and South Africa. The emphasis naturally being placed on British goodies. Things to buy include Crumpets from the cooler, (which... More

This quaint little shop in grapevine was a delight to explore. There is an extensive display of hard to find British fare and essentials. They have many different collections of collectibles and select clearance items in baskets in front of store. From a dollar perspective be prepared to pay top dollar. I enjoyed the trip and the variety offered.

Wish I could do my weekly shop here. Great selection of English foods and snacks. Plus tons of other things. Mugs, cups, tea pots and book etc.

We stopped in here to kill time when we were in Grapevine. Neat little place. We found all sorts of grocery items we had never heard of. We were hoping to find more gift type items, instead of mostly groceries. Seemed a little over priced. Worth a trip inside though.

Being English... I've been here a few times for the convenience of getting something quickly, but this convenience is offset by being overly priced i.e.expensive B&M shop better to shop online e.g. Amazon. Typically, I spend way more than I intend to because once you're there you inevitability get more. The back bacon, sausages, Cornish pasties, sausage rolls, and pies... More

I found this store by accident and I am so glad to have found this treasure. It was all things from Britian food, books, tea sets. I am in love with the English breakfast tea I bought. If I am ever in grapevine again I will go visit.

This is an awesome shop. They have a huge selection of British stuff. We could have spent a lot more time and money there. We would definitely go back.

I knew this was in Grapevine but never found it. I found it and explored it. Such a variety of can, jar, boxed and bagged English goodies. Drinks and candies. Also British trinkets. Need to visit.

The only reason I did not give this 5 stars is because it is in Texas and not the UK. The store is amazing. Although they cannot have everything British they certainly make an effort. The food is amazing. The tea even better. Try the Snore and Peace tea and you will sleep like a baby. The bangers are as... More

As an American with British heritage, I greatly enjoyed visiting this shop. This place has everything you can think of from the British Isles. There was British food, sweets, blankets, clothes, books, etc. If you have any fangirls in your family, they would love all of the Harry Potter and Doctor Who merchandise. I did. I had to keep myself... More
