A word from Pub Burgundy Lion
The word pub is derived from the term public house. A public house was traditionally a meeting spot that could serve as a center for the community as much as the local church. With Burgundy Lion, we immerse ourselves in the community and re-create that sense of comfort but with a modern twist. The concept behind the design and feel of Burgundy Lion is to blend a traditional British pub with a modern lounge bar and to offer a unique twist on British pub cuisine. Burgundy Lion is located in Little Burgundy, an old working class neighborhood in Montreal, steeped in history. Since the early 90"s, Little Burgundy has enjoyed a re-birth as young professionals are taking advantage of its renewed sense of community. Burgundy Lion is not a "traditional" pub by Montreal standards. It provides a higher quality product in food, drink, service, and ambiance than other Montreal pubs.Continued

- Great English FoodMattDined on 6/23/2014Great restaurant off of Notre Dame street, terrasse is always packed so make reservations. Food pricing was fair for an upscale dinning experience but above all......I love their in house made beer!!!!! Try one a "Burgundy Pale Ale".....Hoorah for nice summer days...Special Features:

- Un vrai déjeuner anglaisMangerpourvoyagerDined on 6/15/2014Le seul endroit à Montréal que je connaisse où on vous sert le vrai déjeuner anglais. Des crumpets, bien sûr, mais aussi le bacon en bloc (et non en tranches), champignons, boudin, etc. Même le hareng fumé est disponible. Et quand il fait beau, une petite salle extérieure, entourée de 4 murs de briques, mais sans plafond, est illuminée par le soleil du matin et tous les convives y sont à l'abri du vent.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- great british foodyummyeaterDined on 6/10/2014Went to dinner with a friend who is a senior. I had roast beef, he had salmon. Both of us enjoyed our vegetables way too much! meals were great though not piping hot. Fun ambience, lots of action, found it too loud for our group. U don't want to propose here but the menu was fun and the food good. Fun energetic ambiance and the outdoor terasse looked really nice though we were seated indoors. I really liked the lemonade with vodka/limonchello. The Yorkshire pudding honestly was not like my grandmothers but the meal overall was yummy, strawberry rhubarb crumble was excellent. The cider isn't on the wine list but it's a good way to get a drink without spending a fortune!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- great brunchOmNomNomDined on 5/31/2014Brunch was great: the menu was varied and unique and the food itself was very tasty. Great decor and our waitress was very nice. My only complaint is that some of the staff seemed stressed and the beans were not great (too sweat and a bit too hard).Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great lunchEricDined on 5/28/2014I love the burgundy Lion for business lunches, always great food and great beers on tap. The staff is always smiling! Thanks again for a great lunchSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Sports bar & restaurant, loud & funSusanVIPDined on 5/14/2014This is a classic sports pub with lots of fans, loud music and loud games. Service is good and they don't mind if you eat slowly while watching a game. It is VERY loud so bring your ear plugs if you don't like that.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Good will return, but...VegucateDined on 5/7/2014Overall the food was great and our waitress was really nice. The place has great ambiance, an interesting menu, good beer and great selection of whisky. Fish and chips were great and so was the vegetarian samosa's and vegetable curry. However, something went wrong in the kitchen and our food never came, when I asked our waitress she went to check and although there was a mix up it was fixed really quickly. Without asking the bar paid our beers which was really nice of them to do. I would go back/recommend the place if you're in the neighborhood because despite the hiccup we still had a great evening :)Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Food great, service okay.TpoohDined on 3/23/2014We were there 20 minutes before we got a menu, and we only got it once we flagged someone down. The food was excellent as always.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Interesting BrunchRobmdDined on 3/9/2014There was some interesting fare for brunch such as blood sausage and very thick slabs of bacon, fat and all. This might not appeal to the typical brunch seeker. Mind you, I love all kinds of food and enjoyed my meal.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- toujours égalnormandDined on 2/26/2014On sait qu'au Burgundy Lion il n'y aura pas de surprise désagréable. On y va pour retrouver l'atmosphère et la nourriture typiques de ce que l'on se remémore de certains restaurants et pubs de l'Angleterre et on n'est pas déçu. Le menu varie peu et c'est ce à quoi on s'attend et ce que l'on veut.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Always a great atmosphereOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 2/19/2014While food may not be the most exquisite at the Burgundy Lion, I love going there because the service is great and the ambience is perfect for a casual afternoon or night out with friends. They have a great selection of drinks at decent prices, so there's for sure a drink for everyone. Food is slightly overpriced for what it is, so I would normally not go out of my way to have dinner there. As a bar though, it's one of my favourites in Montreal.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- The food was great. I hadamiableDined on 2/9/2014The food was great. I had the bubble and squeak, and shared a colonel rabbit with mac and cheese as well as the strawberry rhubarb crumble. The rabbit was good but nothing too exceptional. The brunch was good, but also like any other brunch places. I really liked the warm and creamy strawberry rhubarb crumble though, was very well done.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Tasty brunch!OpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 2/9/2014Had a lovely time and brunch was delicious! Great atmosphere and service!Special Features:
- Great spot!KVanAmDined on 1/29/2014Pub Burgundy Lion never disappoints! Great food, great beer & cocktail selection (small list but still something for everyone) and feels like an authentic British Pub. I would recommend this place to Anton for lunch, dinner, or just a fun evening out.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great food but waiters madeJOG1Dined on 1/26/2014Great food but waiters made lots of mistakes taking orders, other mistakes trying to correct the latter, rushed to leave our table, took our plates twice under our nose when not finished. First time this happened, not sure will go back.Special Features:
- Une belle découverteLansiDined on 1/12/2014Le pub est une belle découverte. Moi et mon conjoint avons été charmés par le décors, la nourriture (votre bacon est exceptionel) et l'ambiance. Nous avons essayél le brunch du dimanche et nous nous promettons d'y retourner pour un lunch et aussi pour essayer la Terasse en été. Nous avons d'ailleurs réservé pour ce dimanche avec la famille. A bientôtSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- COLONIAL CURRY CHICKEN!YumsterDined on 1/5/2014AMAZING colonial curry chicken! Thats it! I never tried curry better than at this little British pub!!!:)Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- excellent servicehelaDined on 1/4/2014The staff were very accommodating for our birthday party group. They let us bring our own cake, and provided a knife, etc. However, the space felt a bit cramped for 7 people. Maybe because the restaurant was full when we arrived (Saturday lunch). As for the food, I expected better quality overall. Some items were so-so (fish & chips, tea sandwiches, etc), others were very good (scotch egg, etc). We did have a good time though, and had fun tasting some British food we've never had before. The guys appreciated the sports channel...Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- The Holidaysfoodies4thoughtDined on 12/26/2013It was nice to be able to get together around such great food (Scotched Egg was to die for!!) in a super setting with the festive ambiance. The service was courteous and friendly (bar tender was a looker!!). I highly recommend.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Vivre un déjeuner anglais!MangerpourvoyagerDined on 12/22/2013Ce pub est pour nous, en particulier le matin, l'occasion d'aller déjeuner à Londres. Des crumpets, des œufs frits, du boudin (blood pudding) des toasts frites, tout est disponible. Le service y est toujours courtois, amical. Et le décor vous rappelle constamment que, par une magie potteresque, vous avez quitté Montréal pour vous retrouver chez Lilibeth... Le soir, c'´est le Fish ´n Chips, purée de pois... Match de soccer à la télé, fans bruyants...c'est l'Holligan en vous qui risque de se réveiller. Yes, indeed!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Perfect winter nightBirdyVIPDined on 12/15/2013We went for an annual Christmas dinner - and I think this may be our permanent spot! The drinks were potent and delightful - the Scotch & Whisky list is amazing too! Our meal was great - from Scotch eggs to the roast dinner through to dessert. We were really pleased they were open during such bad weather too!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- First tmehappy2dineDined on 12/11/2013We were in the city for a concert and looking for a place to eat close to the venue. Burgundy Lion was recommended by several friends. I am so glad we took their advice. The food was excellent, service was friendly but not overly intrusive and the timing was perfect. I will definitely return and encourage others to do the same.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Pub Burgundy Lion - I'll be back!RobertWindsorONDined on 11/26/2013What a fun, energetic place. The menu items are creative and perfectly-prepared. This place lives up to its reputation for a gem in Petite BurgogneSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Parfait avant une game des canadienDrolet99Dined on 10/29/2013Merci a Julie pour son sourire et un service impeccable... Tout le monde était comblé avec le choix du menu et les boissons alcoolisés. A refaire !!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- The perfect pubCindyFDined on 10/7/2013I love Burgundy Lion. The place and the staff are warm, inviting, whimsical and familiar. There is a vast selection of drafts and creative cocktails, and a terrific, satisfying menu... by far the best pub food in the city. Highly recommended, day or night, early or late, any day of the week.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Very good placecbokyDined on 10/6/2013Great place to dine at any time. Only issue was last time there was a problem with the kegs so no beer on tap and they were all out of specials and certain things on the menu. Still, it was a great dining experience as usual.I would recommend this to a friend.
- Delicious but NoisystblissDined on 10/4/2013Nice place to have a delicious lunch. Unfortunately, sound level is high. I wasn't able to conduct a conversation with my friend. If you are with a gang for a celebration, strongly recommend. For a lunch and chat between two or three persons, perhaps it's better to go somewhere else.Special Features:
- Close, but no cigarDiningdivaDined on 10/4/2013I've been to the Burgundy Lion in the evening many times. On this occasion, having booked a table I was disappointed to be sat in a drafty corridor despite many tables being available in the main restaurant. The food was good, my steak frites particularly so. Service was disappointing, the waiters were polite but did only the minimum; water was not replenished and we had to ask for coffee when the bill was brought unprompted. I know you can do better BL!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Love this restaurant for brunch.AlishogVIPDined on 9/29/2013Love this restaurant for brunch. The options are fantastic and the staff are friendly, however, they are not always attentive so sometimes it took a while to get a refill of coffee/water or a request for an additional food item. If the service could be improved my rating for service would be upped from fair to good or very good.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- BrunchRandDined on 9/8/2013Perfect English style breakfast, amazing scrambled eggs and blood pudding..Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Simple!MilinerkyDined on 8/23/2013J'ai trouvé que le burgundy lion est un endroit où le menu n'est pas renversant sur papier, mais tout de même bien exécuté... La bière en fût est offerte en plusieurs choix... Correct, rien de fine microbrasserie.. si vous avez envie de gôuter un menu semblable, les proprios ont deux restaurants (fish n brit) qui à mon avis est le même choix, pour un souper sur le pouce et moins cher... Bref connaissant le fish n'brit je m'attendais à plus du burgundy... On y va plutôt pour boire un verre et manger des bouchees d'accras.,Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Entertaining americansHappytoeathereDined on 8/11/2013We had some friends in from Boston. They loved it and said the food was very good. They also loved the vibe of the neighborhood. They were staying at a hotel in old Montreal so it was super convenient as well Really good as usual. We come here all the time.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Burgundy Lion reviewOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 7/20/2013The place is awesome. The service is great and the ambience is outstanding. This is a real gem, and I think I found the bar I have looking for!!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Good portionsGlobalFoodiesDined on 7/3/2013The service was long, but we didn't mind as we were busy chatting. The waiter was very nice and the food pretty good.the portions are very generous. We were sitting upstairs and it was a bit loud. They have good beers, including Bierbrier.Special Features:
- Dinner and a showRogerDined on 6/12/2013Had dinner early prior to a show nearby, the Pub was very busy and I had made a reservation for two ( good idea). The service was good, the atmosphere in the pub is fun and a happening place to relax. I imagine it stays busy later at night with a young crowd. The food was not amazing. I ordered Steak and frites, boring, under marinated and tough. needs a little marinade sauce on it or a marchand de vin. My wife had fish and chips, the batter was not great tasting and no way the fish was fresh. Nice beer, poor wine selection. I'd go back, next time try the burger.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
