Besides being known for our extensive beer list, the British Bulldog has slowly been putting together a wine list that should more than hold its own among connoisseurs of the ’grape’. The Long Boat Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand boasts clearly defined aromas and flavors of green plums and passion fruit with just a hint of lime. The Chateau Ste Michelle Riesling is a dry, crisp wine with beautiful ripe peach and apricot aromas Hyland Chardonnay from Australia gives you plenty of bang for your buck with its hazelnut and soft vanilla aromas. The Satori Pinot Grigio combines dry crispness with balancing acidity to produce a wine perfect for parties or as an aperitif. Casal Garcia is a slightly effervescent, invigorating Rose which is a real treat in warm weather. Our House BV Chardonnay and Merlot offer a superb value for the budget conscious, and will be offered as a special on Wednesdays.

European Soccer At The Pub

How will Chelsea fair under new boss Villas-Boras? A resurgent Liverpool under King Kenny Dalglish are aiming to spoil the predictions and collect some silverware, and let’s not forget about the newly promoted QPR, Norwich and Swansea.

Besides the EPL, We will have all the televised Serie A games from Italy, La Ligue from Spain, and the Bundesleagua from Germany. Besides the domestic leagues, we will continue to show the UEFA Champions League games and the Europa Cup.

Free Times: Bite of the Week – Fish & Chips and Scotch Egg

This English icon comes with a haddock filet coated in a light, tempura-like batter and fried until crisp. Served with house-made tartar sauce, “chips” that you’ll recognize as starchy American steakhouse fries (which go nicely with HP sauce, a British condiment made with malt vinegar, molasses and tamarind), and your choice of beans or mushy peas.
