Where to get a pie and a pint beyond British soil

1. Angleterre

Helsinki, Finland
With darts and toasted sandwiches, this is a pub that wears its Britishness with pride. In the city since 1976, it was the first pub in Finland, and only the fifth outside the UK to gain Cask Marque accreditation.

 

2. Pomeroy's Pub
Christchurch, New Zealand
Dubbed "Pom's pub", this New Zealand institution offers a range of craft beers and imported brews. Family owned and operated, it describes itself as a community-based pub. Offers live music and that most British of pub events, quiz nights.

3. The Churchill Arms
Stockholm, Sweden
This pub has 28 different beers on the bar, and even more bottled beers in the fridges. It also has a selection of single malt whiskies and serves bangers & mash, fish & chips and a Granny Smith apple crème brulée.

 

4. Cross of St George
Paris, France
One of several Charles Wells pubs in France, The Cross of St George provides a piece of Britain in the heart of the French capital.

The kitchen offers beer-battered fish & chips and roast dinners alongside French fare.

 

5. The Elephant & Barrel

6. The Cross Keys
Cusco, Peru
A British boozer in Peru is the kind of thing you would expect Paddington Bear to be campaigning for – but it is a reality. The boozer is run by Barry Walker, a Mancunian ornithologist, and his Peruvian wife. Sup a pint of Abbot Ale, Greene King IPA or Old Speckled Hen while looking at walls full of British memorabilia, including a letter from the Queen regarding the publican's MBE, and numerous football shirts.

 

7. The Fiddler
Den Haag, The Netherlands
Claiming to be the biggest pub in the Hague, it celebrates what it says is "a lot of beer". Which is fair enough, as it has more than 200 different bottled beers, and its own microbrewery producing a range of traditional English ales.

 

8. St Peter's and St Anton
Moscow, Russia
The pub is decked out with football scarves and shirts as well as providing a hunting lodge theme with stuffed animals. Pub grub includes steaks, roast beef, English pies and sausages, fish & chips and burgers. Oh, and cask ale, of course.

9. 82 Ale House
Various locations, Japan
Admittedly a slightly Disneyfied version of the English pub, this franchise is true to the pub concept and design, even down to drinks ordering at the bar, which is unusual in Japan. You will get everything expected from a pub – a pint of Guinness, some fish & chips, bar snacks, and cosy surroundings.

 

10. Union Jack Tavern
Muntinlupa, Philippines
Serving Union Jack craft beer and fish & chips, this pub offers a truly British experience, especially on the food front with a traditional Sunday roast on offer. It also has the British look of football paraphernalia, darkly-lit lanterns, wooden furniture and tables. Roasted lamb, turkey, boiled veg and desserts including apple pie are on offer.
