Where to Enjoy British Cuisine in Chicago

British cuisine in Chicago

Did you know that you can enjoy British cuisine without leaving Chicago?

The city offers more options for this fare than ever before, with local restaurants serving everything from fish and chips to bangers and mash.

Some of the best British restaurants in Chicago include:

Duke of Perth 

Established in the late 1980s, the Duke of Perth brings the true essence of pub culture to Chicago. It features the area’s largest collection of single malt whiskey, and the chefs boast that their fish and chips are the best you’ll find this side of the Atlantic.

The pub offers a cozy atmosphere with dim lighting and a fireplace, and guests always receive friendly, attentive service. In addition to the fish and chips, the menu includes shepherd’s pie, bangers and mash, and Islay chicken sandwiches. 

The Red Lion Pub

With an open-air dining room in the summer and three roaring fireplaces in the winter, it’s no wonder that The Red Lion Pub is popular all year long. Owner Colin Cordwell boasts that the pub is a place to talk about ideas and it comes complete with bookshelves filled with books about British history and literature.

The menu includes meals such as chicken curry, corned beef sandwiches, and English mac n’ cheese, and all pair well with the fourteen unique draft offerings.

Pleasant House Pub

Owned by the husband and wife team of Art and Chelsea Jackson, the Pleasant House Pub is best known for its savory pies. The pub has gained recognition from publications such as Bon Appetit and the Chicago Tribune. Visitors enjoy the quaint atmosphere and unparalleled service. The pies include chicken balti, mushroom & kale, and steak & ale. The seasonal fruit trifle is the perfect end to any meal.
